Homeschooling 2014

Yes, we are still at it! Arabelle is doing great in first grade. The entire first half of the school year was pretty much a blur with the pregnancy sickness going on, but we pushed through and got a surprising amount of work done. We stuck with the basics though. :)  She completed Level 1 of All About Reading and All About Spelling just before Christmas. A good bit of the reading program was a repeat from last year, but I wanted to start at the beginning instead of skipping right to level 2 and I think that was a good call. She really surprised me with her spelling, which wasn't really covered last year!

The package included a little certificate of completion at the end and she was really proud to get that.

We have worked through most of part 1 of her Singapore Math. She did a lot of work on her math facts using the Splash Math app on the iPad, which was a BIG help to me as well.

We also did a lot of read aloud books. We read several of the C.S. Lewis books from the Chronicles of Narnia series. I know we spent a lot of time in the bed reading because it required no movement. :)

So proud of all her hard work the first half of this year! We're continuing on in level 2 of the All About Reading and All About Spelling, finishing her math curriculum, and adding some fun science and art stuff.
