Both boys have hit a bit of a snag in math. Ds3 can’t seem to grasp factors. I think it’s because he has still not mastered multiplication. He is making progress in learning the facts, it’s just that he isn’t understanding the concept, and therefore factors are not making sense to him. Ds4 has worked so much in Mathletics that he did everything in the 1st grade level already. I wish they actually had more levels within each grade. I am letting him do the kindergarten level, which is too easy, but he loves Mathletics and is not giving it up lol.
Ds3 picked Call of the Wild for reading. This week we learned a little about Jack London and read the first few chapters. He is helping me review a new language arts resource and a new geography workbook so it’s been a week of new stuff for him.
Both boys have been enjoying our human body study so much that I’m giving it more time than I had planned. This week we made a lot of the models in Scholastic’s Human Body Easy Make & Learn Projects.
We’ve spent a lot of the week out of the house. It has finally warmed up enough for a trip to the park.
We all truly truly need this return to warmth and sun, I hope it continues!
