News from PA

Dear Friends

It has been a while- seems to be the themes of all my posts lately. But life has been on busy side since I arrived here in PA. Helping in dads school, trying to spend time with my parents as much as I can, in between helping Paul get started with college, he is also working. I also have been helping the other boys finish high school to be sure that they participate in graduation by May 14th. Yes finally two more will be graduating, it will be over, this phase of their life anyway.

Maria and Joey are doing ABSOLUTELY wonderful in cyberschool. Which makes me very happy and reassures me that this was a good decision for them. Noah is growing and more than ready to start learning, but time seems to be an issue and I have NO idea where to start. The typical going over his ABC's seems to bore him out of his mind. So I have to come up with a better way. I will start researching kindergarten curriculum, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated from other homeschoolers.

  1. My goals for Kindergarten were to learn to write the alphabet and learn to read. The other stuff was just gravy-- puzzles, counting, games, and reading tons of books together. We used Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons- just the reading part, not the writing. 5 minutes a day and we always stopped at lesson 70-something bc they were ready for real books. :) Oh, but we started the 100EZL after they learned all their letter sounds from the Leap Frog Letter Factory DVD (and Word Factory- I love the whole series).


I love comments.. I love to hear from you and know you have blessed me with your thoughts
