School’s out for Summer…or Was?
We’ve been done with our Co-op group for two months now.
I told myself that we would continue working on reading with my almost 6-year-old.
We have completed ONE lesson this summer.
Now, before you pass judgement, or whatever, know that this kid has finally learned his days of the week and can recite them flawlessly, recognize most of his alphabet, and almost count to 100 without skipping numbers.
Pretty impressive in my book.
I don’t expect my kids to be geniuses, nor do I push “school work”, as well call it right now.
We are flexible in our family.
We found out that we are expecting our third child this passed May.
Morning sickness has kicked my butt this time around, so I haven’t felt like doing much more than lying on the couch and making sure my kids get taken care of.
We have traveled a lot this summer, so far. We took our vacation at the end of May and have taken several day trips to nearby destinations.
Our kids love to travel. They ask to go places, so we find somewhere fun to go and take off for the day.
Current and Future Plans for the Coming School Year
My almost 6-year-old will be doing the same curriculum as we started with last year, Classical Conversations. We will be doing Cycle 2 this time around. We will continue with our “Hooked on Phonics” lessons for reading and we will work on his math skills. He has a handy “Star Wars” Workbook that is helping him learn to write his numbers and some basic adding skills.
My almost 3-year-old currently has two workbooks he tries to do “school work” in, but mostly is just working on holding his pencil right. He will probably continue learning letter recognition, colors, shapes, and counting with my help and his “Big Preschool Workbooks” and also sitting in on our CC lessons and discussions.
More plans could develop, but we will wait and see what this year brings. Baby #3 is due in January, but we hope he/she comes in December., perfect for a break with home schooling.
We are gearing up for Vacation Bible School, which I am co-leading this year (hence why I am not blogging as often). We are using the “Ocean Commotion” from Answers in Genesis. This is an exciting account of Noah and the Flood. I can’t wait to see how God works next week when we start!
