~ For both girls (5 yo and 7 yo) we're mostly playing games: Busy Bug Collector (early add/sub concepts), Sum Swamp (add/sub), Dino Tracks (place value), Money Bags Game (coin counting). We also have the Right Start game set and plan to use card game ideas from education.com's activity finder. Supplementing with Math Mammoth as desired. I've been really influenced by the article, "Transitioning to Living Math
~ 5 yo is continuing with BOB books and early readers. She's an eager reader and I teach her whatever phonics concepts come up in the books she picks. 7 yo will keep a reading log of the books she's read (this is VERY motivational for her). Thinking about adding "Ordinary Parents Guide..." to the mix.Spelling
~ I'm still debating between Natural Speller and Spellwell A. Both girls LOVE "spelling bees" so we'll do lots of those.History
~ read-alouds from the library. We all take turns picking. My picks are mostly picture books and bios related to early-American history, 7 yo DD likes Ancient China and 5 yo DD doesn't really care.Science
~ 5 yo wants to learn the names of the constellations so I'm buying us a Star Theater 2 and a couple of books: Find the Constellations and Astronomy for All Ages.
7 yo is interested in chemistry so I'm getting her quite a few resources to keep her busy (Pure Slime; Fizz, Bubble and Flash; Molecular Model Set; Elements: the Ingredients of the Universe).
We'll also read / look at a few of the "One Small Square" books together (Pond, Backyard, Night Sky).
