We have had a great month. School is going good. Mike and I are proud of Abby and the progress that we are making! It amazes me how much she does know that I never realized that she did! We have finished 1 unit in our reading curriculum and she tested yesterday and today on that unit. She benchmarked with flying colors! The rest of week in reading and language arts we are working with the classic, Johnny Appleseed!! A favorite of mine.
Here are a few pictures from our first full month of home schooling!
Abby at the laptop working on her spelling words. She loves Spelling City!
Reading a book to take an "AR test" on. We use book adventure. She tests on books that she reads and earns points for prizes!
We love "Friday Night Lights!" Josh plays football and we love to go and watch him play. It also gives Abby a chance to connect with good friends. :-)
International Home School Spirit Week is this week! Each day is a fun theme, just like homecoming spirit week in public school.
Yesterday was school in your pajamas day! Abby and Kit took advantage of the opportunity since mom doesn't let her stay in her pj's on a typical school day. :-)
Today was "Homeschool away from home" day. We went to the park! It was fun and Abby loved schooling in the great outdoors. We may try to do this more often!!!
I took a picture of one of the problems Abby had in math today! She is already solving for x in equations in math. Gulp! This is second grade math!!! She is hanging in there though and I couldn't be prouder!!
Well we have three more days of Homeschool Spirit Week. There will be more pictures to share. Tomorrow is Crazy Hair Day. Thursday is volunteer day and Friday is superhero day! Fun, fun!!!
