This Thing Called Home School... Week 2

We decided this year to home school our grandson. Well, maybe we isn't quite the word, more than me, myself and I. That counts as we doesn't it?

We are using an online school called K12. Last week was easy it was the first week and pretty easy, math is killing us both and I don't want to have to give up because of math.

We also have some issues when we have forms to complete and no room to squeeze everything into the boxes. Aaaargh, just changing  the format would be easier. LOL!!

Today, we have to tackle 3 class and you guessed it, math is one of those.  But grandson breezed through Social Studies, so I gave him a break and he got to do something that can't be done in public school...go outside and pick lunch out of our garden!

Looking for summer squash

I know these will be tasty!

Our Nutritionist will love this!
 Tomato sandwiches for lunch and some squash for dinner. Now, if our weather will hold out so our watermelons and peppers can be harvested I will be happy!

Don't give up. The first weeks are the hardest. You might also need to change math curriculum. We had to do it a couple of times before we were happy with one. Cheering you on all the way.

Thanks for the encouragement. Sadly, I have no control over the curriculum. After all the PE he did today, come to find out their program didn't save anything we 'saved as,' and he had to hand write it all. Very frustrating!

Jean- call and talk to his teacher. We had to do a test on Alia and they tailored her reading back a grade because she was missing some basics. They were great working with us.
