Week One, Saturday
Colin read the 8th Bob Book with no problem. He wants a new Leapster game, so I've told him that when he reads 25 books from our bookshelves on his own - we'll get him a new Leapster game. Nate will earn a new Leapster game when he successfully can identify each letter of the alphabet on a regular basis.

Colin went through his math workbook and we're on page 80. That seems crazy --- but there was a lot of repetition and mostly review of the numbers 0 - 12 (counting, writing, recognition, etc.) He still needs to work on writing his numbers neatly, but he understands the concepts covered just fine. I did not have him complete 5 pages of counting groups of 0 - 5 items - once it was clear that he could do it, we moved on. We're going to start learning how to tell time next week. The workbook only has about 5 workbook pages about telling time - so I will supplement with free worksheets from the internet and lots of practice. We have a puzzle clock, a couple small plastic clocks and both boys recently got analog watches.

Nate worked on a pre-writing tracing book and also in a book of simple mazes.

About Us
I'm a homeschooling mom with 3 wonderful kids! My boys are 6 & 7 and working at a 1st and 2nd/3rd grade level. We use Catholic Heritage Curriculum loosely, with lots of our own ideas added in. My boys attend an enrichment program one day per week during the traditional school year, which gives me extra time with my toddler daughter, and the chance to run some errands without my active boys.

This blog was a running list of what we do each school-day, but I tend to post here sporadically now. We usually school on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday to take DH's days off into account.
