20 weeks into the school year...where is the time going???
MATH: The kids are now working in Life of Fred - Butterflies. They have completed the first 6 chapters and are doing great!
COPY WORK: Nick seems to be slipping in this area. Not taking his time and is using pens and crayons. Not a very good idea. He really needs to work on this. So does Sam. I am trying to figure this out and am hoping to have something concrete by the time Christmas rolls around.
READING: No complaints here! Nick and Sam love to read, especially at night in bed. For instance, tonight the kids read about 10 books before I turned off the lights!
COLORING WHILE LEARNING: I purchased 2 coloring books about the State Flowers and Birds for the kids to work on this month and next. So far, they are doing great!
DELIGHT DIRECTED: Nick worked with his legos and made a bumblebee transformer. He was pretty excited with his accomplishment. Both kids played with toys, read, computer time, etc.
READ ALOUD: We took a break from The Phantom Tollbooth and began The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. Excellent book! We finished part 1 tonight and are looking forward to reading part 2.
