Total 180!

So, completely contrary to yesterday morning…. Dylan ASKED to do his bible lesson today, and ASKED what word I’d like him to write down today. Todays lesson was about Mount Ebal, and when I told him I said “even if you don’t know how to spell it, remember to just write it out how it sounds to you now.” He nodded his head and smiled and said “yeah, I know” and proceeded with his work.

Awesome.

And now…. now he’s running around the house to check off the things on his chore chart.

Double awesome!

Now we just need to finish the school work chart. πŸ˜‰
-20 minutes reading
-20 minutes math
-20 minutes handwriting
-spelling
-we already did two science projects this week, so we’re clear on that! πŸ˜‰

Aidan is also attempting his chore chart, although not with as much enthusiasm, and he keeps getting sidetracked. I imagine he’ll take a bit longer to get excited about the lists anyway. ha!

Aidan’s school work chart has
-write out ABC’s
-write #’s 1-10
-20 minutes preschool workbook
-start sight words

The kid has been BEGGING me to start school since he turned 5. Not a day goes by where he doesn’t ask when he can go to school. I keep telling him that if he wanted to GO to school, he has to wait until next year, but if he wanted to start NOW he could do school at home. He wants a combo of his options. πŸ˜† He wants to GO to school NOW, and not do it at home. ha! Sorry kid, no such luck. I’m hoping that slowly introducing him over the next 6 weeks or so will make it easier to make sure that by January he’s used to the routine and doesn’t complain so much about wanting to GO to school. πŸ˜‰

  1. In some ways Tate is a lil similar to Mr. A. There’s something going on with his attention span at school. Not a recent problem. One we’ve struggled with for years (with preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, and now 1st grade, this technically makes it his fourth year of schooling and fourth year of dealing with this issue) but I’ve only recently begun to realize it’s seriousness. But it’s a long story. Just feelin your pain on this a lil.
