Just to clarify…

Uh, yeah, so that last entry was actually me
multi-thinking. I was thinking
about how I haven’t really named some of the
materials we use yet and so I thought since
I was mentioning what I would like to do
get accomplished I would just give the
names most of the books we use. I didn’t
realize that it was a whole lotta stuff. I’m
really not that good at homeschooling yet!
However, I am proud to say we got quite a
bit accomplished. Spelling test (only 1 wrong
out of 27! she forgot to check her work
before handing it in), Bible, Math, most of the
Geography/Science worksheets, some
Language workbook, lunch, and some
Analogies workbook. There were also some
‘character building’ moments in between
there that took up some time too.
Now, I have an obvious advantage. I have ONE
child who is about to be 13. I can mostly send
her to the table and have her work independently
until she has a question. It works even better
if I explain her work to her or have her tell
me if she understands itBEFORE I leave
her/send her off.
Truth be told, it was a struggle to keep her on
task at times(insert ‘character building’ moment).
There were a few times where I was doing
something so she thought she wouldn’t be doing
That has been an issue in the past
that we are making efforts to HALT. My situation
doesn’t really allow for ‘time out’ to character
train so we are just plowing ahead and as it arises,
pause for tweaking. It is actually good I think
because of Kayla’s age.
To Kayla’s credit she was down here at 8:30 ready
for the day-and breakfast-just as we had
requested the night before. No attitude either.
Right now she is doing her Math independently and quietly. SCORE 1 FOR THE HOME TEAM!!!!!
Well, I better get to some of my list of things.
Have a great day all!
