I am so behind on posting. Little man was sick last week with pink eye and an ear infection. So we sent Sassy away to both her grandparents houses for three nights. So we really didn't do school. Then this week, we're still in Brazil and trying to do the geography game every day, even if we don't do anything else. They really enjoy that game.
Sassy is three weeks away from her new math. I told her that when she finishes Alpha she won't start Beta til after Christmas. So she'll just do online drills and the occasional workbook page. She was very excited for that. Little man is struggling with the multiple digit addition problems still. His answers almost always have alteast one number wrong. I feel so bad for him when that happens. He takes it personally and thinks he's stupid. I keep trying to tell him that Sassy's math is easier, and that's why she is done so fast, so he doesn't need to be speedy and mess up. But he doesn't like that his takes forever. But he needs to learn that he can't have an attitude about it. That's why he lost his bionicles for the day today. Daddy was home and didn't like the tone in his voice or the attitude towards me. The principal is in the house. :)
All in all we are liking ECC. It is very light, so on days we are busy or sick, we can just do math and our readers and then stack it to another day.
I hope everyone else's week is going better than mine. :)
