Homeschool has been going good and strong. There are days, don’t get me wrong. I found out first hand on of the perks of homeschooling and it’s benefits to my child’s education this past week. I saw the need for my first grader to learn a concept she just couldn’t get. She had and still has a hard time seeing the pattern in numbers. She was getting stuck on what comes next when you get to 29, or 49 or any others. While she can count to 100, she cannot take that turn into the next ten if she’s being asked just for that area. So, with advice from a fellow blogger, Kathy, who rocks! I stopped her lessons for 2 days. We worked on it. We sorted cereal, beans, popcorn, whatever else we could get our hands on (even dry catfood😏). And I’m glad to say it worked! The only snag with switching gears like that was she acted out some because the routine was off.
Just think of the opportunities kids could have if they were allowed the time to stop and dig in like that where they’re stuck in school.
Ever had Carmel pie? So rich, and bad for you…but so great for sweet cravings. It’s a versitle recipe that you can do alot with too.
We made this guy in doves this past week.
Some of the girls got anxious to be done with their hula-hoop tshirt rugs and tied them off early.
She and her dad are still working on it. Real wood. Real glue. No snap on pieces. There’s even sheets of hard plastic for the windows. They don’t make things like they used to…that’s for sure. I’ll post the finished house when they get it done.
We went on a field trip this week. The original plan was to visit the Studebaker museum but there was a communication problem so we visited our county museum. We then stepped in an art gallery to see some local talent.
Hey Bruce! Indiana got some snow finally.
