MY RAMBLING =p
We are slowly but surely getting back into things over here. Even though I had not prepared the materials for this week’s lessons until Tuesday, we still got through all of it. Seriously, any free chance Melody gets, she will ask to do school. She loves it so much and wants to do more. A friend of ours is homeschooling her older daughter this year and was saying how her daughter knew more than 75% of the sight words even though they are only halfway through the school year. Not to be competitive, but Melody has been super duper into reading everything lately so I wanted to see how many words she knew. I can’t say how many but it is a lot and even some of the words on the 2nd grade list. The other day my husband bought some spices, etc and the next day Melody was looking at them and said, “How come this is ginger Mommy?” Who in the world taught her the word ginger? She actually knows how to write all the letters but we have 8 more to work through going through RRSP and she also loves learning the verses as well, but I am so excited to teach her phonics so that she will start sounding out words for herself instead of memorizing them. Anyhow, that was a long-winded documentation of what Melody knows right now in terms of reading comprehension.
Emily is surprising me every single day too. She is starting to recognize letters. She got mad at me the other day because I wouldn’t ‘quiz’ her on the school supplies that we had out. She wanted me to ask her which one was the eraser, scissors, etc. The big thing for her is pottying right now though. She does not poop in her diaper anymore and goes in the potty at least 3 times a day and usually has a dry nap diaper. I hope I am not gloating/bragging but I sure am a proud mama these days. And really, the girls are the ones to initiate the learning and toileting so that makes me even more happy.
