Wow! I need to take a deep breath and just relax a little.
I have so much I want to get done, and it is just not getting there.
I am still cleaning up after Christmas. It is amazing how much can happen in one day.
I had really been doing a great job of keeping the house up, and it was all destroyed in one day.
It is hard to keep things up though, when you are getting ready for the holidays.
Oh well, I know I will get it back in order, but I just wish I were farther along.
Oh well, I will buck up and just get er done! HA HA HA
So, as far as school goes, we will keep it light for the next couple of weeks as I try to get the house in order for the new year.
We will be focusing mainly on TOS review items until we really get back in the swing of things.
I think what we will do is to have my daughter doing Ten Marks, completing one worksheet a day, and then moving on to Math Facts Now for review.
I am having her do 25 multiplication, and 25 division each day. (She already know all this, as she is in the 8th grade, but we are reviewing this item, and hey, you can always use some good review, right?)
Then my son will do Math Facts Now as well, although he will be doing very basic addition. (He is just starting Kindergarten)
Following that, I think I will have them watch a video from Speekee.
It is funny because I can't get those spanish songs out of my head when I watch the videos! HA
They are loving Dig It! I am going to keep it to once or twice a week for now as we finish up these other review items.
After the new year begins, we are really going to dive into I See Sam, a reading program that we are reviewing.
I love it! We have done a little of it, but we are going to do it daily after we really get back into the swing of things this year.
And for my daughter, we are really going to dig into the Writing program we received from The Institute for Excellence in Writing.
It is awesome!!!
We will also be listening to Peter and the Wolf from Maestro Classics.
We have listened to this already once, and my son thought parts of it were kind of scary, but it is pretty cool.
I have never listened to anything like this before. It is a mix of a story and the Philharmonic Orchestra!
I will let you know more about these products as I get my reviews done, but you can check out their websites for now if you would like to.
So, I got our living room and my son's room picked up, and now I have the kitchen, our bedroom and bathroom, and my daughters room.
I still have the study, but it is a disaster ,and has been for a long, long time.
It is full of books, school and crafts supplies, etc.
I will take pictures of that for you. I am sure it will be amusing! HA
Well, I am off to get some of this stuff done. Hopefully I will get it all done this week.
I want to, at minimum, get everything done except for the study. If that is all I have to do next week, that will be great.
I'll keep you updated.
What are you all doing for school until the new year?
