so here are my goals for April and Havanna (sanity sucker 1 and 2 ) for the rest of the summer vacation, 8/1 - 8/28.
this past month or so of summer break has been a new experience. having a child in public school while still running a homeschool isn't as easy as i thought it would be, kind of pulling me off track. we will start with Havanna and what goals i have for her.
Havanna , almost 5 and turning 25 in her mind, feels she knows it all but wants to learn as much as she can. So every so often we try to work on things that are more then just the basics. on a daily we work on her abc's, counting, shapes, colors and name. so our new goals to get her ready for kinder/homeschool will be:
-learn to write her name first and last.
-count to hundred in ones, fives, and tens.
-know all shapes and colors(already have this down).
-be able to recognize her abc's and write them as well.
-learn simple math.
-learn to read at a first grade level at least.
April, now a 6 year old first grader, is ready to get more in her mind. we really have taken the summer off and you can tell. she is still at a first grade level which is fine but we want for her to be a little ahead in each year when she starts. so her goals to get her ready for school and first grade are:
-recap her kinder basics- listed above for Havanna
-read on a second to third grade level
-work on adding and subtracting double and triple digit numbers.
-comprehension and grammar
-better her computer skills
-practice her writing and start on learning cursive
The younger ones of course will be doing homeschool as well but we will be continuing on what we have been working on. the doctor said that Tatiana is at a 3 year old level with her speach and the fact that she can count to 50. she knows her abc's and her colors. so my goals for the babies are:
Cristofer and Tatiana-
-learn to count - to 100 for Tatiana
-learn left and right, up and down
so i should get started right? i have a few lesson plans to make.
