  3. I never used Abeka math. I did use Horizon K for my then kinder (last year). I liked Horizon and thought it did a good job. My kid was bored but that was because she is math minded kid and needed harder stuff. I didn't really need the teacher's guide because it was self explanatory.
  4. School started late. I had trouble sleeping. Hope your neck feels better Critter. We are only doing a 4 day Thanksgiving weekend next week. Regular school math, phonics, penmanship and reading.
  5. Feeling somewhat better. Still working out the congestion. DD is better and her Friday school was done.

  9. Road/world schooling sounds fun for awhile. Buy Memoria Press, Sonlight and Logic of English curriculum. Martial arts, circus school, music, art and swimming classes. Possibly private lessons.
  10. Yes to school today. Its early and she just got up. Regular days work phonics, math, penmanship. We also have been learning about the president's of the USA and our states and capitals. She reads to us and we read (if I have a voice) or audiobooks. She hasn't painted her volcano yet. She wasn't interested in painting lately. Yesterday was church, story time at library and since weather was good she played at the park. Today will be below freezing all day. Possibly snow.
  11. My DD6 is part of a co-op. It meets twice a month and a total of 6 hrs a month. We do help with the classes and pay a small amount to help with expenses (like our meeting place). We do it for her. She is very social and loves to be around people. They offer a unit study, flex class and P.E. Last month in unit study she learned about Honeybee's. The mom teaching the class raises them and brought in some for the show and tell portion of the class. This month is about poetry. Flex class last month was crafts and this month it's about Christmas music from around the world. P.E. (weather permitting) the kids play outside on the playground equipment. Inside physical games when weather is bad. Last and this month her Dad is teaching the class. Which she loves. In December will be our Christmas party. No classes that month. I don't use the co op for educational purposes but for social interaction and connecting with other homeschool families. I found a couple of families from our church in this co op that I didn't know homeschooled.
  12. I wasn't feeling well yesterday and only did Phonics with DD. Daddy did math, writing and they are still creating their volcano. Tomorrow we will get the paints she needs and she will paint it tomorrow. Today was homeschool co-op. I will do phonics and she will read to me. Chores

  14. DD6 has done phonics, she read to me, Bible time, writing page and science videos on volcanoes (how to make and watching a real one erupt). Her reading was on volcanoes.

  16. I'm trying to rest but a Mommy's work is never done. She did school yesterday but she gets Halloween off. She has chores, Bible and has to read to me and that's it. It snowed last night and currently only 35 degrees outside. Trunk or Treat tonight and visit family. I'm actually feeling better though. Thank God! DD doing a lot better. We both have a strong cough still but that's improving as well. Happy Halloween 🙂
