The schedule has been going well so far and the students seem to have enough time for their subjects now. We have not began the music yet but we have done some handwork and water color painting.

Our 2nd grader was nervous about doing the story in Mosdos Pearl for 6th grade but she was able to comprehend the story and understand the vocabulary words. We had a vocabulary/spelling test for the students on Friday and they did very well.

In the morning at 8am we do a 10 minute Qi Gong video for the students to get them ready for their day.

Running the 1/2 mile & mile and step counter

Since we are working on multiplication and counting we are doing skip count by…

The sheet is for 1-10 and the rows go to 12 for each number. At the end of the week we will take a Practice Skip Fill in Sheet for 1st, 2nd, and 7th Grade.

Garden Project

The spring garden has been planted and the students helped plant, water, and weed the yard and garden. Here are some pictures of the plants we planted this week together. We have lettuce, onions, strawberries, snap beans, tomatoes and cabbage.

Our mindful class has been coming along as well. We are teaching the students that negative behavior is not a way to act or to punish. Creating a positive environment in the classroom and in the home is a balancing act and should be something that allows each child and adult to grow. Communication is the balance of life and should be provided as a tool to excel. There is no reason to use negative punishments when you can communicate through the situation. Talk about what each person thought and understand what happened. Usually it is a matter of miscommunication and it turns out nothing was wrong to begin with.
