I keep saving photos of Stacia doing school to write a school post...but I'm not sure it will ever get done. She is VERY excited to join our school this year.
She is doing Math U See. Sitting in with us on a lot of our science and history/lit....but the bulk of what we're focusing on with her is a program called Learn Your Letters, Learn to Serve. This is perfect for us. Each week focus' on a letter. She learns to write it, there's a verse, a whole host of hands on things to do and we think of a way to serve someone each week too. This has taken us two weeks - so in the future, we'll probably not do all the activities. They learn a little song to learn the letters, I'll add the Sing, Spell, Read, and Write songs, and games and maybe a workbook if we need it....I think she'll zip right along in this program and then we'll begin the I See Sam series. I love that it's GENTLE and encouraging...a far cry from the pre 3 and pre 4 program we pushed BreAnne into. ::sigh:: I've relaxed quite a bit in 22 years of homeschooling.
Today she bAked Apple cAke to tAke to Akikosan.
We made two. The plan was to take one to Aimee - one of my friends. But Stacia said, " One's for Akikosan and one's for us because we serve our family too. Right, Mom?" Um....she was RIGHT. I've said this often. Today we kept one for the family and they are all thrilled. Stacia learned to serve others and her family....and remembers her A (both the short and long sound) quite well. Her conclusions blessed me. We'll bake brownies for Aimee whose last name conveniently starts with a B, NEXT week. LOL
Stacia waited outside for Akikosan - and I didn't realize it had started to rain. ::snort:: She was VERY excited...and Akikosan was excited. I wish I'd caught the mutual bowing.
If the weather cooperates we'll finish our A weeks by going on an ADventure to Towada Horse Park....if not, I'll be looking for an inside adventure real quick. LOL
I've also discovered she is totally and completely left handed.....
