Some School Stuff
Today, I signed the boys up for their Spring enrichment day classes. I remember back in December when they said Spring classes wouldn't start until March. It seemed SO FAR away and now we start next week already!
The boys all started new math books last week. I know I have said it before, but I really like Math-U-See. It has worked very well for us so far.
A friend let us borrow Boggle Jr. This is a great game! It's basically just spelling words but it feels like a game so the boys love to play it.
The boy's Spanish class is going really well. I love the approach their teacher uses. It's so different than when I took Spanish in school (which I'm sure is because I took it in high school). She just has them play games, games, games but it works!
I learn something new myself just about everyday. Even the first grade geography book was full of stuff I didn't know. For instance, I did not know there was "chunnel" that connected England and France or what a "fjord" was.
Earlier, Isaac was writing a story and looking up words in his dictionary. For fun. That felt like some kind of milestone to me.
