Tips for helping kids through the different stages of their education.March 8, 2018 at 5:10 pm #4857
Finally seem to be gaining some ground on Malia’s reading. She’s been struggling with it so much. We bought a couple sets of the BOB reading books to help build up her confidence. They seem to really be working. And I’m learning to be more patient as I work things out with her. I totally would fail as a teacher. Seriously.March 10, 2018 at 6:07 pm #4859
Haha! Me too! There is no way in heck I could be a teacher. Yay for BOB books! We used several sets of them for Rhett a few years ago. Dang, I gave them away, but didn’t even think of sending them to you. Rhett really liked them, and yes, they were the first books he actually “read” on his own. I feel like once you see the reading “click,” it seems like the reading floodgates open and there’s such a difference.
Rhett had a mini-meltdown after school yesterday over something he supposedly learned in school, but that he had no clue about. Every Friday, the teacher sends home 5 questions for the parents to ask their kids, to spark discussion over what they learned that week. Apparently, they started learning what nouns and verbs are. So, I asked Rhett one of the questions about nouns and verbs. And he was clueless. I get frustrated with him sometimes, when there is a new concept he is learning at school, and he comes home acting clueless about it. Like he wasn’t even sitting in the dang classroom listening and doing the work. I get tired of him doing this, so I try to keep my cool, but I do get frustrated with him. It’s like anything new will take a bunch of repetition before he even understands what in the heck he is even learning. There are a few things he takes to right away & he picks up quickly, but he does frustrate the heck out of me with this issue.May 22, 2018 at 6:21 am #5047
School is out tomorrow! And I can’t believe I’ll have a 2nd grader on my hands!! Rhett has grown so much this year, academically and physically. I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner in 2nd grade. We personally know 3 of the 6 second grade teachers, so we are excited that Rhett may have someone that we personally like and trust. These last 3 days at school are just fun days, with yummy treats every day and games and movies, etc. I’ve been up there each day dropping off food (well, junk really, but oh well). Today was summer birthday day, so we dropped off Krispy Kreme donuts for Rhett’s summer birthday.May 22, 2018 at 9:16 am #5048
Awwwww, summer time here we come! 2 more weeks for us.June 7, 2018 at 11:41 am #5077
What do you have in store for Max & Malia when school is out? Will they go to a few day camps together? Is your Dad still there to help you all out some?June 8, 2018 at 9:52 am #5079
Oy – both of our dads are flying to the Philippines so June is going to be rough. But we are headed to Disneyland/Orange County in a couple of weeks. Then I’ll put them at the day camp at Malia’s gymnastics school.
Beyond that, I still have no clue. lol Yikes! Probably as many day camps we can before our Mediterranean vacation.June 20, 2018 at 12:06 pm #5087
Omg, so excited for your Mediterranean cruise! Can’t wait to hear about it!! Excited seeing your Disneyland pics for that matter. So fun! Brings back so many memories! We would like to take Rhett out to Disneyland in the next couple of years.
