Whew- a whole week and no posts! I apologize for the lapse in regular posting but I’ve been in the thick of it with homeschooling. It’s odd really, we aren’t doing anything additional or out of the ordinary and yet I feel extremely busy and haven’t been able to carve out any blogging time.
The girls have been having a good week. Mira completed one of her Miquon math books. She currently only does Miquon on Fridays as part of our Math Play Day. Miquon isn’t her main math resource but a fun supplement that we couldn’t imagine not utilizing.
Stella had a milestone all her own too. She finished her Sing, Spell, Read and Write workbook. We had to take a break from All About Reading when it hit rhyming. I realized she was memorizing the answers to the rhyming games but wasn’t really making the connection to what actually made the words rhyme. So we took a break and started Sing, Spell, Read, and Write (SSRW). I had an old beginner’s workbook that I had picked up at a used curriculum sale. It wasn’t the whole program, but Stella had a lot of fun and it proved to be a perfect detour for us. Now I’m debating on starting her up on All About Reading again or possibly beginning the Explode the Code series with her. I’ll be getting out my supplies over the weekend, looking them over, and making my decision on what we’ll start with next week.
And that’s it. Just a normal homeschooling week that kept me busy.
