We'll take Christmas and New Year's off (erm, the days that dh has off for those days that is) but I'm planning on keeping lessons going for my own sanity. I can't afford to have us out of routine right now, so we're not taking off. Anyone else?
Yes, we will be working through Christmas. We'll ease off a bit on things (not stress about getting through 4-6 lessons/day) - but we'll do it. We started a week behind here, and have not entirely caught up even now. I'm 'on target' or ahead for Phonics, Language, Math, and History -- but behind a bit in Science, Art and a LOT in Music. So we'll focus most on the classes she's most behind in (Music, Art, Science). And I plan on doing Math daily -- just blast through assessments, as I suspect that she actually would be doing well at 1st grade level, this has been almost all review for her (she didn't know about "pattern rules" yet, and I hadn't taught her how to count money yet, but that's about it so far). So I'd like to just rocket through Math and move into the first grade stuff. But then again, it is nice that we're ahead and it's easy and I can just skip it on busy days without worrying about getting behind.
Glad this thread has been helpful for keeping on track, Cat! It's served the same function for me too.
Welcome, Yippity Skippity!
So, I'm gathering that if you've been given school work/materials for a grade ahead, and it's not completed by the end of the school year, you can continue to access k12 online all summer and keep working on those materials?! I had assumed that unless there was a summer school option that people were signed up for, it wouldn't work that way ....
