Rome to the Reformation (RTR) Week 4

I will try to make this short and sweet since it is a few days late....

Week 4 went well.  We have rearranged some of our days to accommodate our new Co-Op.  We managed to fit everything into our week.  I have broken up the reading throughout the day which has also helped.  Our biggest issue right now is just fitting in school around all those extra activities and doctor appointments.  Unfortunately most of those are necessities and cannot be changed.

Here are a few other quick updates:

Math - I decided to have Tyler review all of his multiplication from the beginning.  This was a good idea.  He seems to understand and is doing very well on his work.  Maggie is doing really well with math.  Strangely if you vocally ask her she acts like she understands nothing, but on paper she is almost perfect working alone.

Reading - Maggie is SO improved.  I didn't really have her do anything over our month break.  We are now reviewing our reading curriculum and she also does an online reading site and has a new old school Reader.  All of these combined are really helping and the reader especially is giving her a lot of confidence.

More next week...
