Week 1 Day 3

13 08 2008

We are in our first week of school and on day 3 and things are going AWESOME!  Isaac keeps asking to do more and then even more!  We are making him stop after we do what we are scheduled to do for 2 reasons.  1. I don’t want him to get burned out and 2. We don’t want to go too fast that Gracelyn can’t keep up.

We really do enjoy Sonlight.  The only thing is that we switch books so quick, but we are getting used to that.  They love Handwriting without tears, even though Grace cried on the first day.  😦  Other than that it is going great….I really love the program and they “get it”.  Isaac understand why we have Frog Jump capitals and they LOVE the chalk boards!

100 Easy lessons for reading is going great just as before.  We didn’t do any of it over the summer (almost 3 months) and Isaac picked right back up on it.  We just had to review a few sounds etc (vowels, the hard ones for him).  I think he is reading at about a mid K level, at least.  Hard to tell because each state has their own grading system on reading.  In Michigan where I was taught he would be at about a .5-1 on the scale.  I am happy with that.

Math is taking some time to get back into.  The new schedule is hard to get used to, but it is working so I can not complain.  We did switch just a few things around to make the day go smoother and it worked!  So we will keep taking it one day at a time.

Just wanted to let everyone know how it is going!

Yay, Becky! That’s encouraging since we’re starting in a couple of weeks (also Sonlight).
