We homeschool DS (5y) and he would be in SK were he in the public system. DH is a sahd with him right now so is the primary teacher.
He is an avid reader. This makes me smile as I have always been a reader and would be the kid in the corner with a book in each pocket and one in hand reading. His favourite series right now is Geronimo Stilton (with a lexile range of 480-700). He also loves to read the simpler books that we used to read at night together. He never minds re-reading the stories over and over. I chuckle because I buy him a new book of his choice and by the time we get home he has read it. He could easily read thicker chapter novels but still enjoys having pictures (at least everyother page) or fun lettering like in the Stilton series.
For Christmas he got 2 magnet sets and is having fun learning about them. I picked up a magnet workbook and he and DH have been trying the experiments with them.
His math levels are also growing. He is doing 2 digit addition and subtraction as well as very early multiplication.
He does a lot of his school work on his computer and loves Elementary Advantage (grades 1-5) http://math-software-review-k-3.toptenreviews.com/elementary-advantage-review.html
He is a video game master (everything from Leapster Leappad-Nintendo DS-Xbox 360-Kinect) and can out play most people I know. LOL. Because of this his hand-eye coordination and reflexes are pretty crazy! He also loves board and logic games as well as mazes.
He is working on his printing. I believe he is at his age level for this but he doesn't like to have to do it. So I have been trying to find fun ways to encourage this as hubby feels he knows how to do it and it is no big deal that he doesn't, where I feel he should be practicing anyways, because the main reason he doesn't want to do it is because it doesn't come as quickly/naturally as everything else for him.
So, that is where we are now! Oh and he is super excited for our trip in March....we aredriving to Florida and doing a day at Disney World then a 1 week cruise.
