Thought I would take a few free minutes and update you all on our workboxes. They are still working beautifully (mostly) for being six weeks into school. Here's what they looked like today for Firefly, in third grade:
We actually cheated and used Dance Mat Typing instead, because her brother was using the kids computer and I don't like to run their games on my brand. new. one.
We are studying Jamestown and Captain John Smith, so she has started reading this book. She's actually not too thrilled with it yet, either, but we'll see.
Last day of the *week* for her Community Bible Study workbook. Tomorrow morning we'll go to class.
Each day we do some kind of occupational therapy activity (actually, lots of them just to get through the day, but one goes in her boxes). Today we read a social story about winning and losing games. Ha. We'll see how that goes . . .
We actually squeezed out three lessons in here today. She kind of hates it, really.
This, on the other hand, is a favorite. I think she's just thrilled to not have to "do spelling" anymore. Little does she know . . .
Just picked this up yesterday. I've been hunting for a way to drill those addition and subtraction facts into her head to make math easier. So far, so good. She (and Bug, really) seems to really like the songs.
More math fact drilling. If she knows the flashcard, it can be added to the ring.
And still more math. Those little baggies in the background are full of chocolate chips. I'm not above bribery, you see!
This is to read about what we are working on in our co-op. I think it's great. Firefly, not so much. I think it's written just above her understanding level.
So that's what's in our boxes today. What do yours look like? I love to take a peek into what everyone else is doing!
