2015 Week in Review: #11, #12, and #13

Reading

Bridget hit a major milestone this week. She does not like when it is time for her reading practice, but she knows there is no way around it. She's learning, and that is what is important. One evening, she picked up a book she had not read on her own before, opened it, and began reading. Big words, too. She was applying what she learned from our reading lessons and knew what sound the vowels made in various different words. She was amazed at what she had done. Something finally clicked. She actually had no idea that she knew how to sit down and read a story. The following morning, she read the same book to Daddy (he missed it the first time due to work) and later in the day read it to Papa. Normally, I cannot get her to read to anyone, but she proudly ran to get her book and read.

Piano

Bridget is doing great! Her fingers are moving rather quick now that they've gotten used to where they need to be. We'll be working on learning how to read notes.

Books

We've been reading a lot of children's books lately, such as Tikki Tikki Tembo, Swimmy, Where the Wild Things Are, to name a few. We'll start back up with a classic novel again maybe next week. Not sure which one yet.

Final Thoughts

I ordered our curriculum for first grade this week. It arrived yesterday. The kids thought it was Christmas when we were opening the boxes. I had no idea how much fun and how rewarding teaching my children at home would be.
