His Workboxes (not necessarily in order of completion)
We’re about half-way through Saxon 5/4 and he’s getting the hang of it.
Since daddy is a numbers guy all corrections are done when he gets home from work in the evening.
Both kiddos are taking piano lessons from Super Grams.
I’m addicted to binders. I’ll just go ahead and admit that now before we go any further.
In his Language Arts (LA) binder you’ll find…
Both are ACE.
Does your state require you to teach Civics (as opposed to history & geography, donchya know) too?
Again ACE plus a daily Map Skills sheet.
I double up our workboxes to save on space. Science is Apologia’s Exploring Astronomy. We do this one together and are having a blast. Haha…blast…get it?
Today’s prompt was “what do you want to be when you grow up"?”
He’s 10. 5th Grade. Any guesses?
Of course. A baseball player. Which according to him he’s
“getting an inch closer every day”!
Gosh…I love being a mommy to boys! They’re too stinkin’ cute!
I keep book reports in the folder. He has to fill one out after each book he finishes. I try to keep them fun and easy.
(not necessarily in order either)
Oh binder sweet binder, how I love thee!
And those little pouches that clip inside. Which are just perfect for holding math manipulatives!
New work on the right. Completed work to the left.
Finished work in the back. Until this semester is done. I’ll then move it out and repeat cycle. Cause I like it.
She’s pretty much all Abeka this year. Language is just “ducky” and Spelling is coming up “horses”. I know it doesn’t make sense. But it’s late. My creativity is zapped!
She’s also keeping a journal this year.
I like how she let’s me know she’d “like to hav sum privs tim”
Which I can only guess means “leave me alone already, mommy!”
Learning cursive in Penmanship (or writing)
Below is the book she chose for her Barnes & Nobel summer reading reward. She can’t read it solo yet. Or she’s yanking my chain to get extra snuggles in? I’m not sure…
I also have her work on Starfall during her 20 minutes of daily reading.
A little history & geography is good for 1st graders too. Love that Target had workbooks in their dollar bins!
And that’s our workboxing wrap.
