I cannot believe that is has been so long since I updated the blog.
So let’s get caught up…School: Elijah has been a dream to school this year (once we got our curriculum issues sorted out). He loves Bible, History and Science. His reading has come on so well, we have started Dr. Seuss books and enjoying it immensely. Math is still an “unloved” subject but it gets done and he does it well. Math U See was definitely a good fit for us at this stage.
Elijah always wants to take part in whatever Jessica is doing but I generally have to keep him away otherwise he takes over
Gabriel is a busy boy with a constantly smiling face. he plays well with his siblings as well as by himself. Gabriel loves to draw (our walls are witness to this) and a scissors is never far from his hand in the school.
And then we have our beautiful little Jessica. We have been doing theme work but Jessica has some resistance to colouring/drawing and a big issue with getting sticky. She is determined and strong-willed. Am hoping she calms down before her teenage years
Sensory boxes are used daily for both Jessica and Gabriel. They have lots of fun. We mainly use Rice, Shavings, Pasta, Cellophane and sponges, Glass beads, Beans, and Cotton wool.
At least one is set out everyday!
Her birthday gift from friends that get played with just about EVERY day.
We have eight to nine weeks of school left for the year. Looking forward to a break but will also be stressing about the coming year (I am way too OCD about this!)
