We started learning about reptiles today and their different characteristics and environments. Our review of phonics and addition practice continued today. David also did some fun Hooked on Phonics games on the computer. He is up to book 3 which is Pig Wig. We read some books about eggs and how different animals are hatched and born out of eggs. That was very interesting. We also started reading in our George Washington book about him and his life and we will read a short chapter each day this week from the book. David made an American flag from construction paper and then he glued a picture of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln onto the flag for President's Day which is Monday. I showed David the different presidents that are on the penny, nickel, dime, and quarter. We also did some counting practice.
I also came to another realization of how thankful I am to be able to homeschool after hearing about something that happened at my daughter's public school today. There is something almost everyday at her school that has happened either dealing with drugs, sex, or fighting and bullying. I won't say what happened as it is quite gross and digusting but it did involve a boy and girl and the girl was the principal's daughter and the boy was known to be a very nice, Christian young man. You just don't know what is going on at public school unless you are there each and everyday to witness it. So, I hope they never outlaw homeschooling!
