My little Kaira is working diligently today, finishing her last 1st grade Math assignment. The final chapter was a hit, and both Kaira and Kendra have been fascinated with weighing things on the balance scale. She’s mastered all the material quite well, but I think we’ll do a week of concentrated “fact firming” drill before launching into her 2nd grade book.
She is also quite intent on practicing penmanship these days, as she rises to the challenge of addressing envelopes to mail thank-you-notes. It has proven to be a fantastic handwriting assignment! Not only must she space her printing carefully to fit on the envelope, but the knowledge that it must be legible enough for the postman provides outside motivation!
