There is a huge battle going on in the living room right now.
This is how school has started the last 2 weeks or so. 🙂
Look at the carnage!
Lego guts everywhere! 😉
This robot is a creation by Ryan.
All the other lego characters are fighting each other.
I saw Nathan sitting here, but not sure if he created this set-up
OR if Ryan did. Ryan is particular when it comes to playing Legos. lol
The battle is still raging on here. I’m not sure who was winning.
There are Grace’s creations. She assembled them.
They were previously scattered all of the boy’s bedroom floor.
She showed me the back of this dude.
You can see his power crystals and jet packy things.
I know, I’m so descriptive. I can’t remember what she called them.
They are rather menacing!
The battle is still raging in the living room.
They haven’t even eaten breakfast yet and it’s nearly 10am!
Sometimes you just can’t ruin a good play time.
They won’t be playing together like this forever, ya know?!
School will finish up today be adding some finishing touches to their
PA State History Notebooks.
Taking a spelling test.
Writing out a Bible verse and continue memorizing
And more Lego play. 🙂
This has been a very different and fun year for us!
After using ACE up until this school year, we
just didn’t realize school could actually be fun and not as stressful
as it had been for many years.
While ACE is a good curriculum and works well for some,
it was just not for us. I’m still getting the hang of what works
or doesn’t work and constantly thinking about things we can do
to make it better! I’ve enjoyed the freedom to change and not feel
chained to finishing 12 PACES in EACH subject.
We still have areas of struggle, especially with Ryan and his reading,
but we are working on these things. It will take time and patience.
I’ve been thankful for the SWR yahoo group.
They have much great advice and ideas to help our situation out.
Nathan has enjoyed school, for the most part, this year.
He has had his attitude problems with some things, as we
all do at times. 🙂 He does great when he is really interested in something!
Grace is doing well. She LOVES her Math U See. She’s in Beta
and cruising along. Spelling/reading are a little slow going, but
she does know all her sounds. She just gets flustered when pushed.
I do push her a little because I know she can do it, but I don’t
push for too long.
We’ll be doing summer school, starting June 6th.
It’s going to be a very light load, but I don’t want the kids to forget
all the things they’ve been learning this year.
I have 2 sites I’ll be using for fun review activities!
Have a wonderful summer!
