giveaway this week**
Well, we did it. We went and withdrew Boo Bear from his school and are now happily back to homeschooling again. I have to say I missed it terribly and so did BB. He was excited and ready to get back started on his homeschool adventure. We have had a great week, although messy weather, and are happy to start sharing them again.
So here's our first week back review!!
I had started him working on the PACES he already had at his school. His teacher kindly gave me what he was working on and that helped us get him started this week. I already have Math Mammoth math for his 2nd grade so I am going to be testing him next week and see where we need to start with that. I am considering Time4Learning.com to see how that goes to add in his Language arts, math help and some social studies/science. I plan on getting Apologia Astronomy here in the next week or so to do for our full science curriculum. So for now we are doing PACES, science experiments and reading a lot.
Here is a picture of a science experiment we tried out. Apparently our ground is too soft right now to break an egg. :) We had to go up on his playhouse structure to get either one of them to crack.
I signed him up for the local Science center classes. They do homeschool Thursdays and this was the first time he could do them. It's a robotics class and he absolutely loved it! He had a blast and I got to talk with some long lost homeschool friends. :) We also made new friends and I'm excited to start this routine back. It's great connecting with others who are in the same mind frame you are.
Has anyone used the Time4Learning? Do you like it? Not like it? I would love to hear your thoughts. :)
Other than myself and my kiddo, there's someone else that's really happy we are homeschooling again. She has missed her buddy and was standing on guard while he quietly worked on his school.
My new favorite thing is watching/listening to him read. We struggled for so long on this and now it's clicking better than ever. I love hearing him read his stories and that he wants to read. Don't get me wrong. He's still very much a boy and would rather build a LEGO creation sometimes BUT we are getting there.
So what have you been doing this week? I look forward to your adventures.
