Homeschool last week . . . . Yeeeeaaahhh . . . . Uhhhhh . . . . We did it. Yeah. We did it. Is that enough of a review? No? Darn. Okay then, Buddha continues working his way through his Singapore 1st grade math workbook. I think it was too easy for him up until last week. Now that he's being challenged, I'm not feeling so conflicted about the math curriculum I selected for him. However, I am determined to find more interactive games that can teach math facts and concepts in a fun way. We're getting too bogged down in workbooks.
Bugga is learning the sounds of the letters of the alphabet. And we maxed out our 40-book limit at the library with a collection of Halloween-related books that we are still thoroughly enjoying. We also took a field trip to the zoo to search for orange and black and creepy, crawly, slithering animals. The boys made a point of wearing orange shirts in honor of the pagan holiday. :D
Also, I thought I'd put in a little plug for these Kumon write-on cards we've got. We love them. The boys both practiced handwriting, letters and numbers, on these cards last week. They are great. (Sheesh! Someone should pay me for these free reviews! :D)
