I am at the farm. I had to tutor Wed and yesterday so I wouldn’t be too far behind. Had to help with a 2nd degree black belt test today Love being a higher rank sometimes. 😉 We were late leaving b/c Stephen had a few things to do..then we stopped by our oldest son’s place for a bit. I got to visit w/the little girl he watches. She’s 2 and calls me “Gigi”. Love her. She’s so sweet. I hope to get a few pics of her b/4 I leave.
Just talked to Stephen. He’s almost back home. Got in a huge thunderstorm (remnants of Cindy) on the way back. I’m glad he’s almost there. I was getting worried.
My sister in law (she leaves tomorrow), niece, and I took care of the animals tonight. My niece will be here for the week. My parents are glad and grateful for the help and for helping with my niece too. She’s 15 and a real sweetheart..but she’s 15 LOL.
Mama is doing really well. I’m pleased. I think this will help her deal with her knee surgery when she has it done now.
Lastly..redid my hair. I decided we needed to try the crayon red over the blue b/c the blue was really staying in. Both my stylist and I figured it’d turn it some shade of purple. WRONG. It’s a coppery color (mostly on top but throughout), light purple on the ends (and a bit through out) and the rest is very dark..with some hunter green showing through in places. I love it though so.
Hair pics..then tutoring pics.
Soon to be 1st grader. Tutoring included magnetic sight words and cvc words, pocket chart simple word/picture match, fun jar math (addition), reading, ‘painting’ words, and a vowel game.
2nd and third graders. Noun, verb, and adjective review (using the pocket chart), reading Curious George and writing about their favorite part. They also had a Curious George picture and wrote sentences about it. Egg money match was fun. They read, reviewed time, played Sight Word Candy Land, and wrote conversations bubble sentences from magazine picture.
My sixth grader (no pics) and I worked on algebra problems, read, vocabulary, and we continued writing using his idea for a video game. I have cards for the algebra, vocab games and reading “The Pirates of the Caribbean (so it’s fun). I also had him create his own video game (b/c he loves them). We did a rough brainstorming paper last week. This week we started our first paragraph describing the game. My fifth grader did all experiments this week Water trombone, egg drop, fire snake, tea bag flying, and making a stress ball. 😉
