Jackson is being homeschooled this year. By me- duh.
Our day starts at 9am. Jackson must have had breakfast, gotten dressed and brushed his teeth by that time. Otherwise he has an extra math worksheet at the end of the day.
His first assignment is to write the day's copywork in his copywork notebook. Sometimes it is a quote and sometimes it is just a sentence. It generally takes him nearly 30 minutes to complete because he has the attention span of a gnat.
From then he moves on to his daily board quiz. I write a handful of questions on our giant whiteboard and he answers them orally and on the board.
Then we move on to our more formal curriculum work.
We are using:
and I bought an all-subject 2nd grade scholastic workbook. It's huge. (and only $7.99 at Costco!)
We also cover other non-book based subjects. Last week we learned about volcanoes. We started by watching a Netflix documentary on volcanoes, then checked out non-fiction volcano books from the library and wrote a 5 sentence report and then read The Magic Treehouse book #13- Vacation Under the Volcano. So we not only covering our weekly subject but an opportunity to focus on reading, handwriting and sentence structure.
Our school day is around 4 hours and that DOES inlcude breaks and lunch. However, I like to think we work on adding knowledge to our brains all day long!
