We read about solids liquids and gasses and then turned solid to liquid by melting crayons. That was art and science!
Ralph is learning the elements that make a story, today we talked about the setting and he drew a picture and wrote some descriptive words about his “Dinosaur Island!”
I was expecting the math curriculum to arrive today, but it hasn’t shown up yet. So, we did a math speed drill and counted by 2′s 10′s and 100′s and did a few word problems.
I do have his writing, spelling, and phonics curriculums so we’ve got that covered. Over all it was a pretty good first day of school. I need to go over the rules again- I need to figure out exactly what those need to be.
No toys out during school is a biggie. He alway wants to have one sitting out where he can see it. “I promise I won’t play with it!” That just never ends well.
Do everything without complaining and arguing!
Sit up and pay attention! -how do I get him to do this? I don’t know. He is so easily distracted and starts climbing all over the chairs. He doesnt need to be still for everything, but honestly 5 minutes would be great!
I think if I make a list and put then up it will help. Put that on the to-do list along with a million other things!
