It's been a long time since I blogged

I can't believe it's been over a month since I last blogged. Schooling has been going great here. Jenna has joined daisy's which she loves. She has lost two teeth so far. And celebrated her 6th birthday this past Tuesday.

Math - Horizon math grade 1 book 1 - she has around 20 lessons to go. We do this 4 times a week. She also goes over math addition facts and money 4 times a week as well. Soon we will start working on her subtraction facts. Timed math drill is done on Fridays.

Spelling - Spelling Workout B - 14 lessons to go on this. We work on spelling 4 to 5 times a week. We do a pretest, the lessons in book, I have her put the words in alphabetical order, write sentences for some of the words and then we test at end of week.

Grammer - First Language Lessons 1 - around 25 lessons left in this. We have slowed down somewhat to make it last til at least the end of the year.

Writing - Writing with ease 1 - I believe we have 12 lessons left in this. So we are slowing this down as well to make it last til at least the end of the year. I am going to begin in January having her do narrations and some copy work from science as well.

Reading -  She likes to read with me and independently as well. I would say she reads for an hour or more 5 times a week.

Geography - we will start this back up next month for a couple of weeks before the holidays.

We also took some time to learn about the five senses, pumpkins, spiders and Thanksgiving.
This coming week is a short week, I'm thinking 2 days. It will be filled with some Thanksgiving crafting and maybe some Christmas list making.
