Day 117

Lots of things going on today. I tried to get as many tutoring sessions as possible. Didn't do too great but I feel we accomplished what we needed to call it a day.

I still need to school Lance, though.
I did get another Saxon Phonics lessons in with Ethan. Yay!
We played Bingo.
 Learned the combination 'or' sound. We coded a few sentences on the whiteboard. Practiced writing words with the 'or' sound. Ethan, coded and read the words on his worksheet and instead of him reading and answering the questions at the bottom of the page. I wrote a sentence then Ethan, read it. I wrote the next one and so forth. We did the questions orally.

I went over Annette's Essay. This is before we made the corrections.
Monday, she'll rewrite it. I went over it with her but I'm going to have Lupe, look it over too.
 I had a tutoring session with Caleb. After I taught him, I had him teach me.

All children completed some sort of math. Annette, Caleb and Brent did paper math (meaning using our workbooks) and some math online (Math Whizz and DreamBox). Josh, Ethan and Lance, did math via computer. I didn't get a chance to sit with them.

Joshua, is writing a book about his Grandpa Joe's funny stories, so I went over some of his writing with him and was surprised at his spelling. He spelled words like friend, would, watching and try correctly. I think ACE Word Builders are helping. Actually he said they are helping him. I do need to test him on a few words but I'm so excited that his spelling is improving. Thank you Jesus!
I still plan to work with him over the summer using Apple and Pears but we may just continue with ACE too, if it's not overkill for him.

This weekend will be a busy one. My sis-in-law and her hubby are attending A Weekend to Remember, sponsored by Family Life, so we are watching their four children ages 11, 8, 5 and an almost 3yr. old.
Tonight Annette and her dad are going to a Father-daughter banquet. Annette, is really excited. After the father-daughter banquet, Annette and her cousin Jamie, are having a sleep-over at Jamie's church. I was telling my hubby last night that I can't believe I'm letting my daughter spend the night at church, with people I don't know. I called and asked questions and do feel comfortable about it but I'm still amazed that we are letting her go without really knowing anybody.

I have more I want to write about, but I need to start dinner. I'm making an Enchilada casserole for the banquet, and extra for us, plus I need to make lots of peanut butter sandwhiches for the Girls Night Out (sleep over).


  1. It looks like you had a great week!
    I love how you let ds teach you after teaching him. I like to do this too, but I often forget. It is such a great way to reinforce a lesson.

  2. Looks like you've been getting a lot done. I'm sorry I didn't get back to you on PLL. My husband's grandmother fell and broke her hip. She had to have surgery. My in-laws were supposed to be heading on vacation, but things got crazy with the surgery and then they ended up canceling. Needless to say, the schedule went out the window and it was all I could do to get our schoolwork done. I have full confidence that it is going to look great when it is done, and I can't wait to have a look at it. Blessings.
