This week's Not Back to School Blog Hop features our students. Because after all, none of us would be doing this homeschooling thing if it weren't for them.
I have two students. A boy and girl. As different as night and day!
Mr. Lego is nine years old and is in the fourth grade. He was my precious preemie. You can read more about his story here.
He has always loved to read and learn. Most of the subjects we study come easy to him. I know if I give him an assignment, it will get done and get done well. Right now his favorite subjects are math and science.
His other interests include Legos, Super Mario Wii games, writing and drawing cartoon books, and playing with his friends. He is currently sporting a red cast on his arm due to an elbow fracture.
The Princess came along 17 months later. She's eight and in the third grade. From the beginning of her education, she has wanted to know why she has to learn something. Then she can determine if it's worth the effort. Getting her to read was difficult, to say the least. After all, couldn't I just read everything to her?
The topic that really sparked her interest in reading was dinosaurs. Oh, she's very girly and loves to dress up in princess clothes. But dinosaurs just really grabbed her attention. Suddenly she wanted to read everything she could about dinosaurs. Whoo hoo! Her favorite subject is science and her least favorite is math.
Tomorrow we start our fourth year of homeschooling. What a blessing it's been to our family.
