I am delighted to report that we have been making progress academically, behaviorally, and socially!
At the risk of boring you with yet another bowling report, I will say this much, this week Bethany did much better getting ready, getting out the door, and exiting the car when we got there!
I think it helped that rather than telling her she needed to get ready when the clock struck five, I told her that she needed to get ready when the clock struck four! Originally she wanted to wait to get ready until Dad got home from work, which would have made it too late to bother going. I told her if she wasn’t ready to go before Dad got home than she would not be able to go at all! As much as I hated to do that, I was prepared to stick to my decision in the hopes that she would learn a lesson about the consequences of procrastination and stubbornness!
Despite hemming and hawing for about thirty minutes and making a last minute decision to change her pants yet again, we did actually make it out the door and arrived right on time! She didn’t even give us any trouble whatsoever getting out of the car and going into the bowling alley!
Beth ended up scoring 5 strikes and a few spares to boot! She and her three bowling mates were “on a roll” because they all scored several strikes! We had a blast seeing the kids have so much fun. They were so excited! There was lots of cheering each other on, high fiving, shoulder patting, and hugging going on in Beth’s group!
I am really impressed with these educational games that I downloaded FREE from the measured mom. This mom offers a lot of cute and cool ideas and educational resources available free for the down loading!
Bethany is doing well on the math games and is actually recognizing the color words. But it’s a little difficult for her to figure out which direction to move her game piece on the Rainbow Sight Word Game board. I just might design a less confusing (for her) version of this color sight word game with the addition of the colors and words for brown, pink, black, white and gray
Here Bethany was helping me snap the beans for Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie!
We have been purposing to get Jeremiah off of his computer and out of the house a little more often. This week he and Dad had a Boy’s night out! They went to see RoboCop and then paid a visit to the Vietnamese grocery store where they purchased some yummy goodies like Pak Choy and Pho noodles! Unfortunately, I forgot to send my iPod with them so I have no photographic evidence of this adventure!
Jerry has also been working on teaching Dad how to play Team Fortress 2 an online game. I Know, I know…it’s an online game, but at least it’s also time spent playing TOGETHER!
As far as learning is concerned, Jerry has been reading about China, India, Buddhism, and Islam in History, persuasive and humorous essay writing in Language Arts, Invertebrates in Science, and continuing lessons in his Saxon 76 math book. He’s still reading When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, and City (which he was supposed to finish reading during his study of the Roman Empire!) I’ve also had him using Simple and Easy Grade 7 educational App with tutorials, quizzes, and flash cards in Math, Science and Language Arts.
