Springing Towards Summer Classical/CM Style - Page 2

post #21 of 25

I thought I posted here yesterday, but I guess I was distracted! I'm planning to start K with DD in March using the CM method, and have been busy starting to draw up our curriculum. We'll be schooling during summer next year because I feel like there will be more opportunity to go out while the weather is nice, and then our big break will be between Thanksgiving and Christmas so we can focus on the holidays. We've already been doing reading/narration a few times a week, and DD is very crafty (I'll admit to encouraging that) so we bake, draw, and paint frequently. We've just started habit training a couple of weeks ago as well as a bit of Spanish. I'm trying to slowly ease us into a rhythm that will fit our family by adding a little bit at a time so we're not completely changing our routine come next spring, but we're not doing anything formal yet. Anyhow, I thought I'd say hello. hola.gif

Our baseball here stops before July but soccer starts. Three teams. I can only imagine how horrible our schedule will be this fall! Right now we have softball, baseball, Tae Kwon Do, 3 different gymnastics classes, 3 piano classes, and violin when our teacher recovers from surgery!

She receives Early Intervention due to Down syndrome. Thankfully, not only is it in-house, but our OT is awesome! I'm going to have to work with the boys though as they think a one hour therapy appointment means no school all day. upsidedown.gif Right now she only comes 1x a month but she'll re-evaluate dd in June and then move to 2x a month or weekly. So we can't be taking a day off school every time our OT is here. orngtongue.gif

Sounds great, Nicole!

That's wonderful they come to your home, MyLittleWonders. My son went to OT. I think to kids that's more fun than "therapy". lol.gif

I think you are right! My boys would agree and they aren't even the ones doing the OT. winky.gif
