You may have noticed that we pretty much took last week off of school.  But as many of you know, just because you are not following a lesson plan doesn't mean that you're not learning!   We went to the gymnastics center one morning for 'open gym,' carved a pumpkin, went to a class at church, and of course the normal playing games, reviewing memory verses, and talking about words as he sees signs out the car window.  I enjoyed taking last week a little slower, but I was ready to get back into the saddle this week!

Ray's math is going really well.  It's such a gentle way of teaching math concepts, but I can tell that Trevor is starting to grasp how it all works!  At this stage, it's all hands-on, which is fun for little ones.  Our new science activities are a nice change.  Hopefully I'll get a post up soon about the estimation activity we did yesterday.  Trevor's very favorite thing continues to be writing, so he is always eager to do his copywork page each day.  I'll get this week's copywork pages up soon, so you can print them out for your children if you'd like!

What are you doing this week?  If you have a blog, put a link in the comments, I'd love to check it out!


Happy Learning!

  1. Hi! I'm a new follower and loving your blog! Can't wait to try your spelling sight words sheets!

    My daughter is about to be 5 and I'm wanting to start the Little House Series with her. We tried it a few months ago and she didn't enjoy it. Did it take your son a little to get used to the style of chapter books? How many pages do you do at a time?

  2. I'm so happy to have you! Yes, it has taken him some time to get used to the longer periods of reading (and not many pictures!) I generally try to read for about 10 minutes, regardless of how many pages we get through. Usually after a few pages I'll ask him to tell back to me what I read about. This is so that I can know that he has been listening. I don't expect complete comprehension, but he should be able to come up with something. If you stick with it, I'm sure you will see improvement!
