Punchie Posted December 8, 2011 Share Posted December 8, 2011 In January, we will begin full-blown school w/DD5. I was planning on keeping things light for K, but I think it's lacking the structure and/or challenge she needs. I am hoping that it will help to tame her attitude problems and temper tantrums. After she calmed down from a tantrum yesterday, she went through the entire "Can You Find Me" book from CTC. It was the pre-k one, but she couldn't get enough of it. Today, we did 20 pages of the first Lollipop Logic. She decided to stop b/c the analogies made her think more than she wanted to at that point. Please tell me that more school will be good for her. Please tell me this will help to keep her tantrums in check (I did just institute a good/bad chart, which motivated her today, but it might not work for long). Right now, all we're doing is ETC, OPTGR, a little bit of handwriting, and reading. She'll do science kits or play math games w/DH, but that might be only once a week. I plan to add on RS A, Spanish (La Clase Divertida), history (DH says to do pre-history), science (I have both BFSU and some Intelligo unit studies, need to figure out which one), critical thinking (I bought multiple books last night for "fun school"), and art (MTM and the Usborne Art Treasury). And I have to balance a toddler and a 3 mos old. And being a girl scout leader (which has turned into my hobby/creative outlet). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
