The kids had started with their homeschool work.
They were happy with watching "Magic School Bus" during breakfast.
Our agenda today included:
Math Bingo (pictured below)
and a Field Trip (which I will show later on)
I had walked to the other room, to get a book. We were listening to WGTS 91.9 and Selah's "It is well with my soul" was on. (I love that song...) I play that station in the car frequently, while the kids are in the backseat. I never know how much they take in...but as I walked back into the room, Adam was quietly singing along. It made me momentarily weepy, thinking, "yep, it's getting through..."
Look at this: a formerly reluctant reader. I am soooo proud of her hard work. She gets to color in one block for every story, poem, or book that she reads. Micaela has fragile x and phonics make NO SENSE to her. Reading for her is sometimes a struggle, and she's worked very hard towards this goal.
And then there's Math Bingo. My kids LOVE Math Bingo. Any game, Math or not, that involves hollering is a good thing in our house. I laminated the sheets and we work on them every day. Hammering away at those basic math skills.
Homeschooling is going well. (Plus I am a lot more rested since Greg got home, so Mom is happier...)
