  • The “Class”

Avery went to ECSE. I did find out that it looks like this new teacher will also be his teacher in the fall and is now his “case manager.” It is kind of interesting, she acted like it was assumed or like I already was supposed to know this. Ok, then. Whatever. I  hope this new positive communication is more than a one time thing.

Big kids:

  • We went over the chapter opener/review of Ch. 14 in MIF which has to do with “mental math” strategies. So today we worked on doubles facts and making things into sets of ten.
  • They did 2pp. Sylvan and 5 spelling words.
  • Naim did HOP Lesson 2 DVD and book.
  • Aaron did Lesson 6 HOP DVD and book.
  • Aaron did 2 pp. of HWT
  • Naim and I went out into the alley and worked on letter spacing with sidewalk chalk.

I stopped by Learning Palace yesterday to kill time while I was waiting for Nik to meet me after work. (Kids went to We Village.) I was looking at all of their workbooks and it occurred to me that I really need to split up Aaron and Naim for more stuff, or alternatively go to a more unit study type of thing and give them different assignments. I kind of feel like Naim is getting a lot of my attention now and I am holding Aaron back. Global Village does more unit study stuff, so maybe I will brainstorm on that for the start of third grade. I am hoping that Aaron will be done with HOP by the end of summer (he only has about 8 Lessons to go.) and then he can start Master reader by himself. I am debating whether to have Naim start on Reading Horizons as replacement or in addition to HOP. I am leaning to replacement now.
