Joy of Summer

Bubba has been doing very, very well.

I decided not to begin a full home school schedule yet. We will be beginning full time on Sept. 1. With that being said, we are still working on lessons and games from

I have also been searching free curriculum's online. We will be using curriculum ideas from and this site has many things to explore and use.

I have also looked into Charlotte Mason, and have found that I really like the idea that children should know poetry and to have them do copy work. So on that note, I went and borrowed Falling up by Shel Silverstein. I figure that the kiddos will enjoy his work.

I cannot wait to get everything up and running.

Just a small note.

Sorry that I have not updated recently. We have been very active and I have a lot to report. Unfortunately, I will have to wait until Bub and Sis go to bed.

Progress for 1-2 July

Well, we've been very productive! I made some worksheets on mathematics, on science, Spanish and language arts with art.

Bub has been working on addition and subtraction, to and from 20. He finished those sheets and asked me for multiplication! So, off I went to make some multiplication worksheets for him. He did both the 1's and 2's times tables and did a small sheet on random multiplication numbers. Should I say that he got it all with very little instruction?

I had him write a short story on our trip to the river and draw a picture to go with it for Language arts with art. Here is his story:

"I like the river because it is cool! I did a float spin."
Giggle! The picture he drew is of him in the float ring, spinning down river. There is also a fish in a bucket.
I also made a sheet up on a few basic Spanish words and a phrase we use almost daily. He had to read the Spanish word/phrase and write the English word/phrase next to it. He got all but 1 without help.
He has also done a quiz on Pill Bugs. He got the 7 questions mostly right. We are working on the items he left out of his answers.
