School In The Home

Yesterday we started back to school. Well, kinda. We started Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons. It is such an easy to follow reading plan. Introducing sounds slowly and building upon skills until 100 lessons later they are reading. The lesson takes 15-20 minutes a day. So for the month of August we will be doing this as our intro to school. Then the plan is to go full gear in September. I figure the 20 minute commitment will get us both ready. DS is very excited and runs to get the book when I tell him it is time. In fact yesterday he convinced me to do 2 lessons. I am also making the mental commitment to read a minimum of 3 books daily. It ends up being more like 5-6 because once the books come out they keep coming.

On my to do list for this week is to set our fall schedule. WooHoo.
Part of the lesson is writing...can you guess what the first two sounds are?

Today we added aaaaaa also known as the letter A

I did 100 easy lessons w/my son last fall. I really liked it! We will be doing some review after slacking too much this summer, but I think he learned so much from that book and the size of the lessons were great. Somedays we did 2 lessons, but usually one.

If I decide to homeschool...sometime in the way future...I'll have to check into that.

That's so great that your son looks forward to these lessons! What a smart boy he must be!
