Homeschool Update

Creating a Native American Sun Shield
Making a discipline chart for mom.
Big City Model

It seems crazy that I haven't posted anything since our second week. We are cruising along. He's perfecting his handwriting. Can add and subtract in his head. Is absolutely amazing at sounding out words and spelling them. He has all but 3 of his sight word cards memorized.I've decided to use the Five in a Row (literature based) resources on this website, It does a lot of the work for me. Then I just add to supplement Nathan's specific needs and interests. This week we are studying teeth. It was Nathan's idea, because he has his first adult tooth coming in. Here are a few pictures since week 2.
