This is what 3rd grade will look like for Little Mama :
Reading - Last year was a really big year for Little mama when it comes to reading. Her confidence level shot up and so did her ability to decode words. She is now reading so well, she shocked us all with how fast she progressed. This school year she will be working her way through progressive phonics "intermediate" books 8-15. She wants to start on the "advanced" books before the end of the school year, but, we'll have to wait and see how things go first. http://www.progressivephonics.com/
She is constantly reading. Her new favorite book to read is her brother's "Adventure Bible".
Handwriting - Little Mama loves to write. This year she has been writing a story that she made up about a young girl named Sarah and all the adventures that she experiences. I love watching her creativity come alive through writing. She will be working on "Printing Power" from Handwriting Without Tears. http://www.hwtears.com/ . She will also be doing copy work from the Bible.
Spelling - This is a new subject for us this year. Little mama will be working on Dolce Sight words on spelling City. http://www.spellingcity.com/
Math - Math U See is still our Math program of choice. Little Mama is doing great with it. This year she will be working towards finishing up "beta" and hopefully start "Gamma". http://www.mathusee.com/ Math is a little bit of a struggle for her. She is not very confident when it comes to doing her math work. That is quickly starting to change thanks to http://www.fun4thebrain.com/ . There she can work on her math facts while playing fun and challenging games. It is so much fun for her. Playing the math games has helped her learn her math facts without her even realizing it. We could not be happier.
Our Little girl is growing up. I love her willingness to try new things and her ability to laugh at herself. She is so much like me. We have so much fun together. She is such a hard worker, she makes us all really proud.
