End of the Year

Okay, so the end of the year is almost here. I have done a few lessons with "Winter Fun" and "Christmas Time," but to be honest, I did them half way, but I may post a little about them when the new year stars back up and so do our lessons. With things being rough around here the last few months I haven't got much done, but now that my medicine is starting to work, I am determined to get back on track. Her lessons will start back up in January. I am considering giving her breaks and such at Christmas time and Summer and eliminating some of her lessons, but I am not sure yet. That is a work in progress. At the beginning of the next school year, I need to get serious about weather or not we are going to be homeschooling her. I have a lot to think about when it comes to that because it is a big decision. Well, that is all until next year!

Week 35: Reading

Monday: We read some of Samantha's Level One readers. We also read a ton of other books. I had a huge pile of all her books and I just let her pick one after the other. She really enjoyed that. 

Tuesday: We played some matching games with letters, upper and lowercase. And we also practiced writing. (Samantha is getting really good at tracing her name.) 

Wednesday: No story time. I cannot remember why either. 

Thursday: Her art project was to make a book. It is one of those that you try to re-write the words of the book and color the pictures. 

Friday: We tried some new recipes for Christmas, but to be honest, the only way that tied in was "reading" the recipes. 

Saturday: We played a ton of computer games, reading games of course like the ones on Star Fall and the PBS Word World games.
