I have told you a lot about the littles and their journeys in our homeschooling…well today I want to tell you a little about how Moe Man is doing. He has had me at my wits end, dang teenager! 🙂 That whole thing your parents tell you when you're growing up "I hope your kids are just like you" line…yeah, I don't think I like that line anymore!
Moe Man has been busy with his writing. We decided we needed to work on that a little more. Last month we learned about outer space and Moe Man decided that he wanted to write about Neil Armstrong. He did an awesome job at it! He wasn't happy that I made him write more than three sentences but when we took our time and laid it out by paragraph, it went very smooth. I was happy to see that when it was typed up all nice and pretty, it was a page long! Not bad for not wanting to do it if you ask me.
Math wise, oh boy. I wish I could find the "just right" program for him that isn't going to cost an arm and a leg. We are working on a review right now, and he seems to like it for the most part, but it is a tutor and not an actual program. We are making it work for us though.
For Science we are working on Geology. I am still working on the plans here, but we are starting on the flood with Noah and going from there. I think we may take some time here, only because the boys love rocks and we will use this to our advantage.
Reading and writing are working on finishing our Percy Jackson Book. Everyone wants to hear it, and mommy got tired of reading it all the time. What does a mommy do? She plays the audio book! All the kids and mommy get to listen to this fun story, and I don't have to listen to anyone complain. Now, I do make Moe Man follow along in the book, and than he has activities to do that go along with the readings. I like this as it builds on his comprehension of what he has read/listened to.
We have been busy all week, and this upcoming week is no different. I hope your week and weekend were good. I can't wait to share more later this week on some of the fun things we have done!
