And people say we don't socialize our children! We are super busy and I feel like the older he gets the busier we get. Today we had a pretty easy but busy day. Monster and I worked on his Language (which he mostly does alone since "it's so easy!"). Then I had him get dressed and we went walking around for awhile outside at the mall. We walked over to Barnes and Noble and got him a few new books as well.
Monster finished reading Charlotte's Web. I was worried about him getting upset when Charlotte dies (he cried with the giving tree) he did well when it ended. So I thought ok, lets watch the movie now since he hasn't seen it. Poor kid cried his eyes out when Charlotte died! I guess the movie was harder since he was watching it take place!
This time we got A Wrinkle in Time. Hoping this one goes better! Also, he is reading The Three Musketeers.
After getting back, we worked on Math. He is working through Saxon Math really well. I am actually considering buying Teaching Textbooks and having him go ahead and start 3rd grade math. He just seems bored. I figure we can do Saxon together and then later he can do Teaching Textbooks alone. We can see how well it goes.
History we are still working on learning about the 13 original colonies. I have found some great books to go along with this as well that are in his reading basket to help him learn more about them.
Science we are still working on solar systems. Last week he created a solar system and then wrote facts about each one on the planet! Going to hang it up in his room. He did very well with this! Today we talked about seeing in the dark vs light. And how white light vs red light works better in the dark.
I got some new canvases from Michaels. Again they had these on sale. This time was buy 3 for the price of 1. So I got 3 for $7! Perfect! Now I got to find us a new Art project for our wall!
Here is Monster this morning and just a few of what he did.
