Week 2

Last week was quite full for us. We did manage to get in a reasonable amount of school, but there was no time to blog.

Here are a few questions that were on my mind last week. I would love to hear your thoughts.

Cursive - - any tips on teaching cursive? I am using startwrite to create worksheets and I use Donna Young's cursive animations. Any other ideas?

The silly cycle of home school mom guilt - - - "Oh great, she finished a 4 week literature assignment during week 2. I am not challenging her enough." Then, later the same day, "I am expecting too much from her. I should have gone with the grade level spelling workbook." Does anyone else struggle with this roller coaster? How do you find mental balance?
