    Homeschool – Week 5 and 6 in Review

    We didn’t do much last week. Ethan wasn’t feeling too well and his attention span was in the negative range. We did lessons 9 and 10 and started the Final Project for MBTP and did lessons 10 and 11 in RSM. Week 6 was much more productive Monday – We finished up Concept 1 Unit 1 Final Project in MBTP and completed RSM lesson 12 and 13. I can’t wait to be done with part/wholes I feel like it’s just making everything harder then it has to be. We did a little bit of work with money and Ethan was very excited. One of his favorite things to do is…

We still put her in a diaper when leaving the house and at bedtime/naptime but she gets really upset if she potties in her diaper, it is so sad.

    Thinking about 'school'

    One of the things I have learned this year while homeschooling for preschool is that since we are home we don’t have to do school M-F 8 -3. I can do it any day and anytime of day.  I know that seems silly and kind of like a duh! thing but for me it was a big revelation and very freeing. I’m getting ready to order our material for next year and am really getting antsy about it. I’m trying to wait, I read on their web site that they run discounts in April.  But I want it, I want to get it, and look at it, and plan. I…
