Just wanted to document our progress, if you’ve read enough of my blog, you’ll know I do this for myself as a form of record-keeping, for my husband and mom or anyone who wants to know what Tori is up to, and finally for any other homeschoolers curious about a curriculum we use.

First off, Math-U-See (MUS). After a week of working with all the different colored blocks, Satori and I pretty much have them memorized. 8? Easy, that’s Chocl-EIGHT! Looks like a candy bar. 3? The Three little pigs. 5? Five blue skies (rhymes anyway). And so on.  We’re also starting simple addition and it’s presented so nicely that Satori is understanding it. Last lesson was to line up the two bars, and find the matching one. So as you see below, 4 (yellow) PLUS 3 (pink) EQUALS 7 (vanilla). Today we started addition by 1, and Satori was able to give the answers without thinking in most cases.

Each lesson is 6 worksheet pages like above, but only 3 are practice on that lesson, and the other 3 are a review of the current and past lessons. We plan to cover 2 pages a day, EVERY day of the week except vacations. I decided this based on feedback from other homeschooling families.

For All About Spelling, we haven’t actually started spelling yet, we are still on the spelling preparations. We finished lesson 3 and one of the motivational devices they use are these little charts. Satori marks off each lesson as she completes it. I found these frog stickers that look appropriately ecstatic to cheer her on. 🙂

Satori and I spent the morning playing with our Handwriting Without Tears (HWT) manipulatives. It really is the first time I pulled these out! We are in our Pre-K book, and just got over the capital letters L, F, E, H, T, I, and U. Today we reviewed by feeling with our hands the correct formation of the letters. First up was the Stamp and See Screen.

Then on to the Roll-A-Dough letters and rolled little red snakes to form the letters.

I am pretty confident she’s got this set of capital letters down now. Next HWT lesson, is on to the Magic C!
