  1. Hello All, We don't start DD6 1st grade year till mid September. We do summer school lite right now. This week she is practicing cursive and doing phonics review, she reads to us and we read to her. Her new math book comes this week. She won't start this till September unless she asked to do it early.
  2. How does he feel about it? Does he feel it's too much? Does he have more writing to do in other subjects? I plan on using the 1st grade literature guides and have my dd do the writing. (I've seen the sample of the lessons). If I need to break it up overtime then I will. Writing is frustrating for her but on days she will do the Lit. Guide she will have no other writing that day. Maybe breaking up the writing so it's not all at once might help him.
  3. Only one kid here and she is only 6 so if she feels good enough to play then she can do school work. If she starts to spiraling and melting down we will modify depending on what she can handle. If she is lethargic she goes to doctor and will rest with audiobooks or cuddles and being read too and/or let her watch her science and nature show. If all of us are sick like last winter with the flu none of us did anything. If Mom or Dad is sick she still has school.
  4. Did he want to homeschool or was he happy at school?
  5. Stuffy nose try a warm mist humidifier.
  6. For my only dc and upcoming 1st grader we do a co-op that meets once, every other week, September-May. I do wish it met more often. We do it with her because she is super social and needs to be around others. Its also good for her to learn from other adults. Her classes mix 1st-3rd grade kids, so it's not just same age group. They also have P.E so she gets to play with others in a playground setting, when weather permits. She does have park day several days a week so there's that too, for play. We live a city, in apartments so no yard.
  7. Lawrence here and we are okay. Thank God! Many friends and family were in its path but are safe. Praying for our friends in Linwood which was hard hit. Finally got my daughter to sleep about 20 minutes ago. She was worried about her friends in Linwood and about another tornado coming. She packed up some of her precious things and has them ready just in case. I'm tired but to wound up to sleep.
  8. Is she asking you to stop or does she want to continue? My DD wanted to learn early but then she had enough and wanted to stop for awhile. We would put it away for a few months then she would want to do it again. This went on for awhile. My kid would sometimes switch words or miss one because she was distracted or bored. She 6.5 and still does (mostly because she is distracted by the pictures). Fluency comes in time and with practice.
  9. Thank you, Knitgrl! I will look into it.
