Our summer is over. We are homeschooling again this year, and the kids had a FABULOUS first day. We are completely changing up Drew's schedule. Instead of doing thirty minute segments of every subject, every day, we are enveloping ourselves into one subject each day. Monday's are Math, so we spent hours reviewing multiplication, learning how to multiply in the tens and hundreds places, and doing word problems with calenders and time. I felt like we got so much more accomplished this way and we didn't get bogged down with a mile long to-do list of mini topics. Maddi reviewed counting to ten and then started learning how to add and subtract single digits using gold fish crackers. We also went over our ABC's and letter sounds and even did a little coloring. She is SO HAPPY to do school with Drew this year!
I thought I'd pay some photo homage to our last few weeks of summer break... we spent time with friends & family and even more time chasing around our new pups.
