Madison loves her Fashion Merchandising Class this semester. She just finished a report on Jackie Kennedy Onassis as a fashion icon, and thoroughly enjoyed it. She is also doing well in Consumer Math, where she is learning all about payroll and deductions and a host of other things that make my head spin. Fortunately, she gets it, and Steve is an awesome helper too. This course is so important, as it involves things she actually will use in her life.
Peyton continues to work well. She is my steady worker...always working ahead. : ) She especially likes her American Nation Class where she is studying the 1800's. She is doing very well in Geometry, and works mostly independently. Thank Heavens!
Rhett has also become a mostly independent worker as the year progresses. He has grown as a student and is working very well. He continues to enjoy Spanish and Science. We are doing much better in his Math class this semester, as he is studying Algebraic Expressions and Equations. Finally, something my literary mind understands! : )
And my little preschool student, Flynn.... I love each and every day with her. I just love the simple, uncomplicated world of preschool. It is so fun to see her learn the basic components of math and reading...the things everything else to come is based on. Plus, it is just plain fun! We are working on letter formation and soon will start numbers. She cant wait for that! : )
Things I'm loving...
- No snow days to make up
- Watching my children succeed and also truly understand what they are learning, not just memorizing and repeating it for a test
- The Cyber school teachers, who really love their job and are committed to helping my children succeed
- Just being with my kids all day everyday : )
- Madison starting back to work this week...meaning she won't be with us in the afternoons : (
Here are some pictures of February in our little home school classroom!
Our Preschool Corner all decorated with hearts and love!
Working on the painting for her little...
She made a snow covered tree with Popsicle sticks and cotton balls...
And Teacher/Mommy learned something too...while we were waiting for her Popsicle sticks to dry, she did some free painting...and she loved it! Mommy needs to remember to let some things happen without planning...And yes...she is wearing Santa jammies in February, because...well, she can!
Our Wall of Saints is filling up. We study one every Friday. During Lent, however, we will be learning about The Stations of the Cross.
And our favorite snack this month...warm, gooey, sweet rolls. : )
