In our homeschool this week... We did a lot of "talking" learning and some actual book work too. I have to say... with the Singapore math that I am getting myself confused so it was great my Dad was here. The way they are teaching addition and subtraction is very different to me so I'm learning right along with him. But he does seem to love this math so we are sticking with it. We started the chapter in Science on swimming creatures of the past, mainly dinosaurs :) So Boo Bear is all excited. We also worked on our Spanish and other items this week too.
Questions I have... I know I have seen a lot about the Common Core. I know some people are tired of hearing about it. I was wondering how many of you use it for a guideline? Do you have to have an evaluation each year? Here we do unless we are under an umbrella school. My thoughts were to keep the cores in my portfolio and examples of him doing it so they know we are on track... sort of. Now if we go above and beyond, which I plan on, that's fine too.
Places we're going and people we're seeing... I think we will take a trip to the library today to stock back up on books. He's going a little stir crazy since we are not able to hit the park for 2 weeks. We have our Pinewood Derby race tomorrow too. I'm sure he's excited about that!
What we're reading... Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator
What I'm Reading... A lot of different stuff. :) The information on the common core, homeschool blogs for inspiration and advice, websites on getting organized. LOL Lots of different items ;)
My favorite thing this week... Seeing my son more normal than he has been in over a month!
A couple of photos... First my kiddo gave me these this week for " taking care of him" ;)
This is what some of our down time looked like this week ;)
