School Update

School is going swimmingly so far.  Claire still asks to do school on our off days and usually says "Yay!" when I tell her it's time to start.

Last week we finished our brief study of America.  She now knows that we live on the continent of North America, in the country of the United States, in the state of Arizona.  

Working on a felt American flag.
 I was able to find some old Reading Rainbow episodes about the Statue of Liberty at the library and  we also learned about bald eagles since they are our national bird.  We did a fun craft that even Joy could do with us.

We added the U.S. and Arizona to our felt map.  Now on to another country!

 Reading is going better than I thought it would.  It is coming pretty easily for her now that she is old enough for it!

She very much dislikes the days that she has to write out her word list.

Math is math, not much to report there.  Although I never realized how hard counting by tens can be for some people. Haha.

In science we finished up our 5 senses study which she really enjoyed and just started the weather unit. 
We have a weather calendar to update daily and a weather dial. It was so exciting to put on the sticker to indicate "windy" today. 
Yep, we're having a good time.  Joy does really well with playing by herself during school time and of course she is included whenever possible. 

Paige is more of a challenge but we are making it work.
