Highlights for the week include:
C started reading! We had to try three phonics programs to find one that fit, so this was no small feat. We finished All About Reading Pre-Level last week, and this week used the Ordinary Parents Guide to Reading and Bob Books while we waited on AAR level One to arrive. The light bulb finally switched on and C was able to start blending CVC words! He was oh so excited, as was I!
Fun Friday! We try to keep Fridays light as J has a music class in the morning and we like to do history projects on Fridays and get in lots of read alouds. This Friday was not exception. E did her independent work while we were at music, and C played the Wii with daddy. :) When we got back we read the Usborne Castle Jigsaw Puzzle book. They loved it!
We also read The Making of A Knight, and all week have been reading The Minstrel in the Tower.
Friday is project day and we made a Rice Krispie Treat castle. So fun!
I love the flexibility of homeschooling. We were able to slow down a little this week because of my health, but yet we were able to continue forward anyway. We were even able to redeem a challenging week by having a great fun Friday. Friday afternoon is upon us . . . with dollar store snacks and a Netflix movie!
