Avery went to ECSE today. And that is all I know about that. I am meeting with his teacher tomorrow.

Big Kids:

  • We are struggling a bit with subtraction with regrouping which has a lot to do with their lousy math facts. We did games for a few days to improve but tried to get back to it today. Aaron had a fit so he was dismissed. He will have to finish later. Naim and I did two pages of the book together. He can do it using blocks, but I don’t think he really gets what he is doing, because he cannot transfer it to paper without all the steps for blocks.
  • They did 2 pp. of sylvan
  • Aaron read “Smart Shark” and finished the Second Grade Level 1 package in Hooked on Phonics. We will start level 2 on Monday. I can see us finishing by end of summer if we work steadily at it. Then third grade with master reader is a good place to start.
  • Naim did the DVD and book for Lesson 16 in HOP. He has 16, 17 and the review to go and then he will also move up to First Grade Level 1.
  • Aaron did a page in HWT
  • Naim did Qq in ZB
  • We watched BrainPop about mass and grams/kilograms.
  • We did three experiments with Magic Schoolbus. One was about high and low pressure currents where we heated up a snake thingy made out of paper and made it spin. The other involved suffocating fire in different ways. One was with larger or smaller glasses to snuff it out. The other was by making a “fire extinguisher” out of baking soda and vinegar.
