09/11/08

Its been three weeks now and I think Nathan has finally gotten into the habit of having school work to do on a consistent basis. As for me I still haven't figured out how to organize so it seems like I don't know what I'm doing. There is alot of materials supplied through the k12 program that I haven't found a way to organize yet plus all the extras stuff they I have to keep the twins busy and don't get me started on school supplies. Nathan struggles some with school but I think having two brothers running around distracting me and him doesn't help. I've ditched the k12 phonics program for now. The stress on Nathan and me has diminished and he's actually learning the sounds and not getting frustrated so I think it was for the best. We are using the Get Ready for the Code program right now and when he completes the 3 books we will see if the k12 program works for him then or if we need to continue with the Code series. Instead of dreading the lessons he now asks for phonics near the beginning which he has been reserving for his favorites.

Hey I'm glad to see you decided to stick with your blog. I'm happy she's adjusting. Yes the lower case letters are giving us the struggles too.

So, are you liking the K12 program now or are you still holding off on using it for now?

Megan- We love everything so far in k12 except the phonics program. It just didn't work with my child. I bought another phonics program and he's doing really well. I pm'd you my phone number so please feel free to call me. We can also get together and I can log on and show you how it works.
