Schooling through the holiday season proved more difficult a task than I had expected! Not that the kids need much "formal" school...
I really couldn't make the time to blog about the things we did from November through December because I was too busy crafting! This year I think my deadline for making gifts is the first of November. After that, NO crafting!
This was our first week back and next week we'll be having a do-over. We were bombarded by a virus for 11 days. It was absolutely terrible and, to add fuel to the fire, my washer wasn't working! (It was later found to have a cloth wipe wrapped around the pump.)
Things just piled up and sitting down for school things went to the back burner. We did manage to get a few things done before even I fell ill to this super virus.
This week I continued introducing Eli to letters, but now I'll be going about it a little differently. Instead of the alphabet in order, we'll be working on the easiest letters to write first. He is very interested in writing so I thought I'd let him give it a whirl!
|Eli is always so dirty! It was only 8 or 9am and his hand is filthy!|
Turner started to work on short vowels. I'm trying to get him to finish really recognizing sounds as he becomes more interested in reading.
|There are so many great FREE resources out there! This vowel set came from Homeschool Creations.|
|Every time they would take a different part out, Eli would hem and haw and say "Ah ha! I see how that goes!"|
|One of the hi-lights: finding the brain inside the skull!|
Deacon is proving to be incredibly...umm...busy these days! I'm finding it hard to occupy him while the boys do sit-down work. Most days, I have to put him in his high chair or I'm likely to find him doing something like this:
|Apparently, he didn't like the way the calendar board looked...|
I'm really hoping for a better week coming up!
