Nothin' 2 Prove

The building of Gunn Ranch Academy one caliche rock at a time; our friends, family, passions, learning adventures and our little piece of HIStory in the making!

Off to the Races

Ok well we are officially started with school. Schedules in hand, brand new year, crisp new books (mostly), new pencils and notebooks, monkey bread for breakfast.

Finally figured out our math dilema for both girls- going with an online program called Thinkwell which we had a trial of and they both liked. Placed my order with Homeschool Buyers Coop to get it 50% off and just waiting for subscription for them to get started which will take a couple of days. Taylor will continue Life of Fred with it as well, so we’ll just keep that going while waiting on our Thinkwell account to be active. I’ll keep you updated on it’s progress, but looks like it should be just what the doctor ordered- clear video instruction with well-explained problems, several different forms of explaination for extra help if they aren’t understanding, and best of all self-grading with parent reports so I can easily see just what they are doing and how they are progressing.

Off to the races…
