wy_kid_wrangler04 Posted November 29, 2011 Share Posted November 29, 2011 We realized over the summer that a summer break is out of the question for him. He lost EVERYTHING. We literally started over from square 1. Last week was the first break for him since summer break. We took the whole week off for Thanksgiving as a family, 1 week, and yesterday and today have been SO frustrating. Ds lost everything again. He forgot how to correctly form his numbers and letters. He forgot most of his letter sounds. He forgot how to space words (this we have always struggled with so that really was not a surprise to me) 1 week and again we are back to square 1. So, I plan to not give him breaks more than 2 days in a row (weekends) and we may even do a small amount on those days (like a math lesson, or a handwriting lesson) just to keep him on top of things. My question is how do I do this without burning him out? I think on the weeks that my other dc have off I will do 1-2 subjects a day with him, just to keep him going. Do you think that will be enough to keep burnout down? Will that be enough to keep him from regressing so much? Should I load up on learning games for those weeks? Would that help? I have contemplated buying Right Start games for him but what level would I get him? He is doing Horizons 1st grade math book 1 but is only on lesson 8 and is doing Singapore 1A and is in unit 2 exercise 7. We are taking math slow because I am doing other stuff outside of his math books also (counting counters, skip counting, playing with MUS blocks to find number bonds) TIA Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
