We had a great day with school today. We have added almost every subject now for 1st grade. We did Science today for the first time and the boys really enjoyed it. We are studying the human body and this week they are learning about cells, blood vessels, veins, arteries, and organs. They loved it. We will do an experiment on Friday (we are schooling Friday this week because we missed Monday). Tomorrow is a history day and we have two history projects to do. We will likely do one of them on Saturday, along with our first art project. I know they will really enjoy that.
They are doing really well with their narrating. I am astounded at how much they remember about what we read and they are really good at forming their responses in complete sentences. Currently I ask them questions about the passage I read aloud so I am walking them through how to narrate a paragraph or short story. Eventually, they will be able to do it without the questions from me.
I had better sign off, as it is much too late and I have teacher, mom, wife, housekeeper, cook, daughter, sister, etc. duties tomorrow.
