In my life this week…
- Three vehicles. Only one runs. The saga continues. As soon as the end seems to be in view, something happens. Good thing that I'm a homebody and don't absolutely need to go anywhere during the week.
- Very happy with my 3 in 30 progress. My chalkboard contact paper arrives today and Josh is heading out to get supplies from the hardware store. My menu planning board should be hung today! I'm very excited about this.
- It was an on call week for Josh, but the whole family seemed to manage pretty well with that and the holiday week change up.
In our homeschool this week…
- Jonathan is flying trough his math book. He's two page away from finishing Math Mammoth Addition 1. I'm trying to decide if we should move on to Subtraction 1 or go over to the Grade 1 book and cover the addition portion. To my shock, he has his addition facts with sums up to 10 memorized. Suggestions? More addition? Or move on to subtraction?
- Cursive. Lots of cursive. Jonathan writes almost everything in cursive now. I decided to forgo a curriculum. I haven't found anything that wowed me. We're using a traditional cursive chart, writing paper, and homemade printables. I've been letting him try on his own for the most part and then correcting letters using the whiteboard. After doing his Pathway workbook pages, I've been selecting some of the words to perfect and work on connecting the letters. This seems to be working pretty well for us so far.
- We're full swing into Kindergarten and everyone seems to be quite happy. It is difficult explaining to the neighbor boy that Jonathan is in Kindergarten even though he doesn't go to a “real” school.
- Educating the Wholehearted Child by Clay and Sally Clarkson. Join me is discussing the book if you've read it or are reading it. I'm in chapter 7 right now.
- I finished this ProBlogger book. Reading it was one of my 3 in 30 goals for September.
- I'm reading Seasons of a Mother's Heart by Sally Clarkson. I'm linking up with Home with the Boys each week to share my thoughts. I posted my reflections from chapter 2 yesterday.
