I started using my mama journal the same day it arrived.
I grabbed my markers, colored pencils, and some of my old Stampin UP pens. I haven’t used those in years so I was glad they still worked!
Then I got right to coloring. It really is a great way to unwind from a busy day.
My hubby even sat down and started helping me pick out colors!
I really enjoyed using my mama journal!
I wish my penmanship was nicer but maybe that will come in time. You never know!
I also continue to complete at least 3 pages of Dyslexia Games Series C. This page is from Book 1: IQ Challenge 2.
Lance and Ethan completed their first Dyslexia Games book as well. They were working through Series B-Book 1. Today Friday marks two weeks with using Dyslexia Games: Brain Food.
Here are a few pages of what Lance did today at the library.
I like how he is practicing to write smaller. I think he’s doing very well.
Look! His name has improved a little. His letters are not floating all over the place. I’m praying that by the time he completed Series B he will be writing neater and on the lines.
Here is Ethan completing some pages from yesterday. I had some Mozart playing softly in the background.
Some of Ethan's pages.
And y’all know how I like to take close-up pics of the kiddos hands!
Today we took a trip to the library so we can start using The Thinking Tree program on Monday.
Once my books come in Lance will use The Thinking Tree program as his core curriculum for this year. He will use: Multiplication Games 180 Days of Math, Art, and Logic Fun along with his regular math program Teach Your Child to Read, Write, & Spell: 100 Easy Bible Verses
Picturing the Past: Charlotte Mason Homeschooling – Study of Art & History
Lance will use the Hyper-Active Homeschool Journal daily.
I’m pulling back on his regular grammar and writing for now while he works his way through Dyslexia Games Series B.
Lance will continue to use Reading Kingdom since it doesn’t require any writing. I'm excited for Lance. I just know this is going to help him with his reading and writing.
Once I have everything in front of me I’ll write in more detail how we are incorporating The Thinking Tree curriculum into our homeschool.
I’ll also be sharing Ethan’s school as well.
Until then this mama is going to do a few more pages of her homeschooling mama journal!
