This year we are using My Father's World ECC. We are loving it so far. Sass even said, last week, that she loves school this year. She likes doing more stuff, not just writing in workbooks and reading. She may not understand all that we are doing, but she likes it. Little man doesn't complain at all. I think this year may actually be fun. :) They love using the maps.
We're still trudging along with Math-U-See. Slowly but surely we will finish. Little man is about half way done with Beta and Sassy has about 7 more weeks left of Alpha. I was hoping to have her done with it my the end of this month, and him done at Christmas, but they are having a hard time comprehending basic math facts. So we are taking the next two weeks and do flash cards for review. I don't know why I worry about it. It's not like they're going to "real" school anytime soon.
Sassy is still working on her reading. But, my motto is "She'll get it when she gets it." I'm not gonna worry about it. She's in 2nd grade and I think it'll click my the end of this year. She lacks the confidence, really. She doesn't even wanna try most days. We're using McGuffey readers for both of them. So she reads one story every day. It's just the right length, so she doesn't freak.
We're just using a simple workbook for his spelling. A page a day....Perfect. I need to get one for her. She hasn't done spelling yet. I think a workbook would be perfect for her. I think it would help her be comfortable while learning new words. I think I'll get one this week. She does better knowing that if it's in a book/lesson, then she has to do it without complaint. I like that. :)
I'm actually doing science this year. I hate science, but they love it. So, I'll be teaching it. :)
