I need to start updating weekly again

wow its been a whole month since I posted. I had no intentions on waiting so long. Jenna did school the whole month of May. I have seen such a maturity in her when it comes to schooling. She doesn't give me a hard time at all, just sits right done and does her work.

Math- She finished up her Horizon math K book 2 earlier this month. She has been working on her addition math facts and I will be also adding some subtraction ones as well. If she continues working on them, maybe she will have them mastered by fall.

Reading- She is still doing very well, I think that I should start challenging her more with harder books. I wish that she would like to read independantly, but it hasn't happened yet.

Spelling - spelling workout B - I pretest her on monday and whatever words she gets wrong are her spelling words for the week. By the end of the week she spells them all correctly and if not I add them to the following week.

Geography - Jenna drew the world map and labled all the continents. She knows all the continents, which one is ours and the countries in North America. I need to figure out where to go with geography next.
Writing - She writes daily for herself, but I need to get my rear in gear and have her doing some formal on the lines writing.
Science - we are study plants. We have read alot and did some worksheets. She is doing an experiment with been plants right now.
Thats about it. I am going to try to start including more to her schooling and to start posting more.
