We took the month of December off, and now that it is all over I can finally say that I worried over nothing! People at home had me so concerned that I was doing the wrong thing. My father (bless him) was appalled that I was taking a month off. When we talked about it, I reminded him that Public Schools take off months in the summer and we had only taken a few weeks. What he said next, kept haunting me. He said that that was true but that the textbooks and all that have reviews of the last year set up at the beginning. He reminded me all of that about Brain Drain and how much ground we could lose and that there wasn't a set review right where I needed it.
So this morning, with that worry gnawing at the back of my mind, I started out with my middle boy's sight words, then the last review sheet from his last math chapter, and finally reading the next phonics book in his set. And you know what? He hadn't lost a step! Same thing for my oldest! Woohoo!
Okay, Okay it wasn't all sunshine and roses. my youngest confused the same beginning sounds and rhyming. And then he confused his b, d, p, and q. But he is only 5, and he wouldn't even be in kindergarten yet.
I worried my way through December for NOTHING! LOL!
