In our homeschool this week... We are moving right along this week. I implemented 30 minutes of quiet time reading this week and it seems to be a success. I am not forcing him to read out loud unless it's something he wants to read. I just want him to get into the pattern of "reading" by himself daily. It seems to be working so far. He is enjoying it.
We are working on some great reviews coming up so that is added into our daily work :) We are having a blast and can't wait to share them with you next month.
We are working on math drills right now insuring he knows, or at least mostly knows, his addition facts. It is important he knows those before we move on. So this week has been a lot of math drills on paper and on my Kindle Fire. He loves that!
We are working on our phonics as well this week and it seems to do well. We are making progress and Mommy is excited to see it.
We also had a field trip this week that was a blast! We went to a working dairy farm and learned all about how our milk gets to our stores.
Questions I have... How many field trips do you take? I am trying to work more in and not just the once a month ones we sometimes have with our homeschool group. I want to incorporate more hands on learning. Any suggestions?
Places we're going and people we're seeing... We went to our pirate class this week, to have the car checked out due to a recall notice and hoping to have a park day sometime. Maybe today?
I'm praying for..Midland City and Dale County Alabama. That was very close to where I spent a large chunk of my life and I have friends that were affected by the loss of the bus driver. Praying for the child's safe return.
A picture of the week... I shared this one earlier in the week but I love it. It definitely was a highlight of our week ;)
