You're welcome, New!
MLW, it makes me smile to read what you're doing since you're a full cycle ahead of us. It feels like we'll never be that advanced!!
We finished making our Nile River from construction paper today.
We did history and math today. I could not get them to stop on the math. They spend 50 minutes doing page and page even when they clearly were DONE. Ack.
Loved their enthusiasm! Hated the whining at the end.
It's not like I put a timer on the math or anything...
Oh, and why is kids do that? Keep going and going and then get ticked about it?
We have RS lvl B math which he has been kind of bored w/ as most of the lessons was beginner type things that he understood just presented in their way. I wanted to make sure we had the concepts down in the way they do it though. However, we seem to be turning a corner and he was somewhat challenged yesterday and seemed to enjoy it more. Being the way his brain works it is hard for him to learn random things like the days of the week BUT the adding and subtracting he thinks is easy as pie.
We did our d' Aulaires Columbus book. I just absolutely love their books. Some editing but mostly good. We ended up reading the whole book even though I only had half scheduled however we didn't get to the project for Columbus I had scheduled. I think we will move it to next week as I orignally had it scheduled to do Columbus anyway from our Eggleston book.
He is progressing well through handwriting and I am amazed at the changes. Reading went better as well, but that seems to be in phases depending on his mood.
