Sunday Night Thoughts, Plan for the Week

Reading math Damien_new

It has been an interesting week, and I am more than ready for a fresh, productive start.
Hunter (7) was sick on and off the entire week - spiking a fever, then it going down, now a high fever, then playing around doing fine, a low fever, a vomit episode, feeling better, a little bit of a fever again. Phew. My kids usually bounce back after a day or two - this was a weird experience for us.
Thankfully he didn't suffer too much and it all was mild, but because of this, as well as a house guest being around this whole week, not much of anything school wise got done.

Fourth of July

This next week, Hunter is going to VBS each morning. I am hoping he will have a good time while giving me a chance to get back into a routine. Waking up early (er, earlier). Getting dressed and eating breakfast very soon after. Having a set three hour time limit to accomplish tasks, prep for some afternoon school, spend some time with Damien by himself.

Wish me luck. This week Damien is going to be working on his alphabet letter sounds (he knows the sounds of A-L, now we're going to introduce M-S) some animal, color, and family name reading words and encyclopedic knowledge cards, and some more quantity introduction for math (only on 10-20 right now). Hunter is going to be working on his Time 4 Learning math and language arts, maybe some art and piano lessons, and lots and lots of reading.

Both of the boys will hopefully be doing daily swim lessons, and walking (Damien) and running (Hunter) sessions. Oh, and Damien's potty training. He is sitting on the potty by himself now (as in, he can walk over to it, turn around, back up, and sit down with good aim), still a lot of messes though, but he is making progress. I'm not in an extreme hurry though.

Thanks for reading. How has your week (and summer) been going with your kids?

“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”

    May I ask where the inspiration to introduce phonics came from? Is that also encouraged/outlined in Glenn Doman’s “How To Teach Your Baby To Read”?

    I am so excited about following your weekly plans with Aria- I think she’s roughly the same as my little miss Aiyana- born on August 1st, last year!

    I feel so blessed to have found you!

    Thanks so much!
