It’s peek in the workboxes day again. I wasn’t sure I’d have time (or energy!) to get it done…but somehow I managed. Yeah…just call me Super Mom.
She’s learning skip counting by 5’s
The Hundreds Chart has helped A LOT!
We’re using Abeka’s Arithmetic 1
So far so good. She’s really getting all the math concepts. I’m very impressed.
Daily piano practices and weekly lessons.
Her Language Arts binder includes…
Abeka’s Letters & Sounds
I’m surprised that reading isn’t coming easy peasy for her. Abeka does tend to be hard core and very auditory. She’s more like her mommy – Kinesthetic.
Sometimes I’ll have flashes of inspiration. Such as this fun way to practice her special sounds annnd work in a little cardio…
She LOVES it!
Blah. Abeka again. This is just not working for us. I hate to give up when I already purchased the curriculum. But she’s flunking all her spelling “tests”. And that’s even with me using a multitude of ways to practice the words.
I’m not sure if it’s just not connecting and if we stick with it – it eventually will click?
Or if I just need to bite the bullet and buy a different spelling program?
And Abeka’s Language 1
Now…see…this she totally rocks.
Abeka’s Cursive 1
I have THREE copies of A Handbook for Reading…but somehow didn’t notice that I was missing TipToes! The next book in our curriculum. Ugh. I’m using old readers to supplement while I try to decide if it’s worth buying another copy of TipToes or not. I just know if I do…Murphy’s Law will sneak in and hide it plain sight though!
Keyboard Town Pals which we’re test driving. Review coming soon.
She has a cute little book with writing prompts, space to draw a pictures and a few lines to write her thoughts.
Not in the Workboxes but on the School Menu anyway
The Tale of Despereaux as a read aloud with both kiddos – it’s possible I’m enjoying this book even more than them!
Apologia’s Exploring Astronomy
And that’s her 1st grade workboxes today. I’m sharing them with…
I hope you share yours too. Because I like to be nosey in my spare time.
