08/26/08

Nathan's first day of school. I thought I was already for today and yet I totally missed the ball on a few things. Overall once all of our materials get here I think we are really going to love it. I am dreading the teaching of phonics but I figure it won't hurt me to learn at the same time Nathan is. I have a feeling the twins are going to want to learn at the same time. Already today Noah did the same lessons as Nathan. We did math, handwriting, language arts, and science today. The science is something I'm doing extra with the kids as its not require through the UVA. Tomorrow should be easier and a little more prepared. I learned, today, how to get through the lessons and I think within a week or two Nathan, the twins, and I will be old pros at this. I can't wait for his Spanish lessons to open up so we can do those. We do history tomorrow too.

How much time each day is involved with UVA?

For kindergarten 2.5 hours, however its as long as it takes you to complete the lesson. We've done all in one hour and yesterday it took us almost 3 1/2 hours. The nice thing is when we need a break we take one and we can move at a pace his comfortable with. I'll post some of the fun things we've done so far later this weekend.
