Well, we are halfway through the day that I was dreading a bit. I just wasn’t super excited about keeping the kids focused on school work when we haven’t touched anything school related in two weeks. However, it has gone well. So well, that I am going to type out how it has gone down in hopes that maybe we can do this again tomorrow. I know it’s wishful thinking because each day around here goes so very differently. But, here goes….
6:30-I wake up to quiet house and warm coffee, though it was freezing cold out from under the covers. Enjoyed Day 2 of James study as well as a devotion that reminded me that God knows at what pace I need to be going. He remembers that I am dust! I need Him.
7:30-shower and then on to our “B”s. BED (make it up!), BRUSH (your teeth and hair), BREAKFAST, BIBLE
8:30-Started school. Girls started Math while I reviewed Mack’s sounds and then sent him off to watch LETTER FACTORY. I started laundry.
9:15- Spelling Lists/FlashMaster when done
9:40-Geography (lines only)
10:00- Break–I switch laundry and then walk on treadmill because I am so out of shape…gracious…and kids put away school folders and then play wii
11:00- Writing and English
11:45-Kids go play store while I write this blog and then fix lunch.
12:15- Eat Lunch
1:00- Reading Time for Ruby (Sarah Noble)
1:30-Reading Time for Molly (four early readers)
2:00- Another Phonics lesson with Mack.
We’ll also start our Read Aloud of the Little House series tonight.
I’d say we’re off to a good start. I really hope we can keep it up!!! We can cover a lot of ground over the next few months….and then the weather will turn a little warmer….and then it will be summer time….the pool will open up and we will be there every day. At least this is what I bribe my kids with off and on all throughout our home school days! Molly heard me say something a while back, and she has hung on to it: “Remember Mom, you said that we will do a math sheet and read a book and then go to the pool every day, remember you said that???”
Hope you have had a productive Day 3 of 2012!
