we do teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons. She has gone from reading sight words to actually sounding out full paragraphs and actually comprehending them. We do spelling words each day that we finish a lesson (sometimes they take 2 days-she has attention issues) We also do simple games having to do with phonics. We also read stories where I will read to her and sometimes I will have her sound out a word randomly or just read the and's and the's.
We do Math U See. She is literally amazing me with what she is learning. I KNOW she is almost to grade level (she was help back in ps) because of it. (my son is in 1st grade and she seems to be more advanced than him and she was in K in ps) We do play some games and I randomly drill her on the stuff she needs to become secure in (skip counting, adding by 1, etc) We don't do this everyday but we do math every day.
We do science once a week with an experiment like a glitter volcano or predicting the weather.
I definitely feel like I am not doing enough. I can SEE her thriving but I still feel like I'm failing because it doesn't take very long, like maybe 2 hours a day. I see all that you all do with your kids and I wonder what else I should do because I'm definitely not feeling like I'm doing as much as all of you. We just started homeschooling about 2 months ago and I'm starting to think I want to homeschool all 4 of my kids but I want to do it right. What should I add. We are Christians but we believe in an OLD Earth so I need ideas for curriculum. Any ideas? :D
