January has come and gone can you believe it! Nothing special this week school as usual which is good. I have made adjustments since we lose Friday due to our co-op participation. Losing a day during the week really makes a difference so its no nonsense Monday through Thursday.
Tot School- Joshua has become increasingly disruptive during school hours so this week I purchased his first set of school workbooks. We will begin to implement them next week.
Pre K- Emmanuel finished Kindergarten Level 1 phonics he has now moved on to Level 2. We continue working on his math and motor skills.
2nd Grade-Christopher has a fantastic week.
Math-Completed lessons 38-40. We have been more diligent with our math fact practice and our efforts are paying off. Our curriculum comes with flash cards and we use www.xtramath.com for additional drill.
History- Learned about castles and knights. Hopefully all goes well and we will be able to attend a field trip this Wednesday to Medieval Times to watch a joust. I’m sure the boys will love it. We also learned about Jamestown and Captain John Smith.
Science-Studied different biomes, desserts, rainforests, grasslands and icy poles.
English-Worked with the pronouns, he, she, I , me it.
Phonics- Completed lessons 26-29
