Who is gearing up for the big Homeschool Book Fair in Farmington Hills? I cannot wait. I went to a mini one last year but super pumped about this particular fair since it includes workshops, used book sale, etc. My hope is to really find some great deals on curriculum for fall 2012 since I will have a 4th grader, 1st grader, and preschooler. I am currently using A Beka with Sweet Pea (8.5) and just love it. I am looking forward to bringing Cup Cake (5) on board. Jelly Bean (3 in May) my future preschooler, will just do fun stuff that mommy puts together. I think I am qualified to do that being a former preschool teacher right? (biting nails) Haha! By the way, what happened to that huge storm we were expecting today? I know that it is icy and windy, either way we had no Palaestra today. My girls were so bummed.
Homeschool Week 23
This week has been pretty calm to say the least. Nothing really awesome and spectacular to report. But I must stay, I very proud of my sweet girls and very blessed. They are really coming along in their learning. Cup Cake (5) is amazing me with her reading and math skills. She thoroughly enjoys learning and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Sweet Pea (8.5) has excelled in A Beka and I cannot wait to move her along into 4th grade when the time comes. She just got done learning about Louisa May Alcott. She discovered that she wrote “Little Women.” Sweet Pea is looking forward to reading this book now that her reading skills are very sharp. I will most definitely be having her do some sort of book report or lapbook on “Little Women” when she is finished reading it. Love it!
I just completed the educational game review that I previously mentioned. It should be available within the next week or so. This one was definitely a blast to review. Stay tuned for that.
Sorry that this post is on the short side, but I guess that’s the way it goes sometimes. We are enjoying a pajama day with pancakes. Hoping to get out there and build a snowman with the little bit of snow that we did end up getting, haha. I heard it’s a great packing snow.
Have a blessed weekend!
