Our first week

Our first week of homeschooling is going great!  There is definitely an adjustment process going on, but Keaton is really benefitting from the one-to-one teacher to student ratio (!) and I am enjoying the time we are spending together.   We started with 30 minutes on Monday, and have gradually added more time each day.   This week, we are reading one Aesop's Fable a day and writing the morales to each, doing a review of 3rd grade math using a McGraw-Hill 3rd Grade math workbook, assisted by the Math-U-See learning blocks, practicing our printed letters and learning cursive.  Next week, Keaton will start classes Tuesday-Thursday at C.H.E.S.S. Academy, and be home with me on Monday and Friday, when we will reinforce what he is learning at the Academy and continue with our extra practice in Math and Writing.  

Keaton is starting to SEE how multiplication and division work - I could tell that a little light went on for him today - thank you Math-U-See!
