Turner will have his first assessment today or tomorrow. He struggles. I feel his struggle. I have to keep reminding myself that he is just in Kindergarten, that it isn't such a big deal. I pulled out another work book for him to work on while Isaiah is working on his reading lesson to re-enforce what he is learning during his lessons. A Beka would like me to 'grade' him, and I'm just not ok with that. He is still feeling this homeschooling thing out. He honestly just doesn't care about academics. I went to scan some reproducible worksheets from a book I have, and my scanner died :( We are working on the vowels and number recognition.
Right now I have jelly canning jars lined up in my kitchen with beans in them to see (or I guess, "PROVE" since we know what they need to grow!) which one contains the perfect environment to grow in. The kids are loving science.
