Madison is working well. Her Consumer Math class is very interesting and quite useful. She is learning about paychecks and deductions and taxes and is finding it very interesting. I am so glad she is taking a course that applies directly to her real life. She is also working well in her Literature class. I love literature myself, and am enjoying revisiting the beautiful pieces I haven't read since college. Her least favorite is Earth and Space Science. Let's just say she tolerates it. : )
Peyton is loving her science class. She is learning so many things that she actually has an interest in. It is so wonderful to watch her read something and then jump up and excitedly share it with us. On the other hand, Spanish is not exactly her favorite. But we carry on. : )
Rhett is becoming my rock star! He and I have the most fun doing his math lessons, of all things! We work through them together, and after we submit them, he always gives me a high five! So cute! He is excelling at Spanish, and really enjoys it. Least favorite for him would have to be Language arts, mainly because he prefers to read books of his own choosing.
Flynn continues to enjoy our mornings together. She is still working on letter recognition, math concepts, and small motor skills. We completed a few fun art projects this past month including handprint turkeys and a turkey headband. She discovered a new love...glitter glue. Yay. ; ) We also began learning about the saints, beginning on All Saints Day, and studying a new one each Friday. She loves it, and so do I.
Things I'm loving...
- Sitting in my glider watching my kids work
- Watching Rhett gain confidence in Math
- Watching Flynn discover letters in places other than the schoolroom : )
- Sharing a cup of tea with Madison everyday
- Keeping a little lady from distracting my three older students with cute songs and dances
- Geometry. Enough said.
Here are a few pictures of our schoolroom adventures last month!
Thanksgiving decorations replaced the Halloween ones...
and turkeys made from handprints replaced the jack-o-lanterns.
Sometimes we did our schoolwork in warm cozy jammies. : )
Flynn and I read about special people who loved Jesus very much...
and then colored pictures and added them to our Wall of Saints.
We made a turkey headband for Thanksgiving Day...
and couldn't wait to try it on! : )
Favorite snacks last month were cheese and crackers...
and chocolate chip muffins. : )
Thanks for visiting!
