Mathematical Reasoning Level B
As for Bess, she has already read more than half of the Bookshark books. I could have made her stay on schedule, but that seemed pointless. We're taking science and math at a little slower pace. I've had to rewrite the schedule a little since she sped ahead, but it's pretty easy to tweak Bookshark. One thing we have changed is we've given up Bookshark language arts. Bess is still reading the books, but her hatred(and my own) of the way the LA is designed made tossing it an easy decision. For right now, we're using Editor in Chief from Critical Thinking Company
Sequential Spelling 1,
So far we've had a really relaxed year. BookShark minus language arts is working well for us, and Max and I are having a lot of fun with math. I'm listening more to both Bess and Max about what is working and what isn't.. I feel giving the kids more input has made everything run more smoothly.
Until Next Time!
