We start school officially (Kindergarten) on August 16th (a Friday so I can be home for her first day). Before then we aren't doing too much. We are reading through the first Harry Potter book and she is working on her reading by reading her BOB books and Dick and Jane books (she can read those with no problems). Once in awhile she will do some copywork too to practice her writing (she loves copywork). August is a very light month this year because her 5th birthday is in 10 days!! Plus we are super busy lol (multiple board game nights, Kickball games, softball games, overtime at work...etc)...
We are doing senses, body parts, building our own body mold. Moving into 3 digit addition, subtraction. Doing a section on egypt and mummies, making our own mummy. I will also try to implement a chapter a day reading (he hates to red, even though he can read really well).
He is doing grade 1.5 thats the month of august, we do school year round since we mostly do school wed, friday, sunday. We do small reviews and some math on m, t, th, and sat we do nothing. Our schedule is based on daddys day off mon, tues, and wrestling practice mon, tues, thursday. During the year he does tournaments on sat. So wd cant school then.
With my little guy - reviewing things we did last year in both reading and math. (we're starting the very last week of August so it really will ny just be review for him)
With my oldest, its mosty will be all introduction to the subect/concept, or review Writing: intro into writing humor Math: review of multiplication from last year, and continuing the little bit we didn't finish last year History: Intro into the year and a general peek on what was going on in the world in the "early modern" times Science: Astronomy
We were doing the garden/plant life cycle/harvest/blah blah blah, but we've been derailed. We'll do composting a bit earlier than planned and move into studying hail and how nature trumps it all. We might even study the effect on food prices in our area.
