Sweet Boy and His School Work

Sweet Boy has not been very excited about school lately and it is my fault.  I've been pushing him.  The more I push, the less he does.  But I realized this and have backed off.  

Here are some lessons I've given to Sweet Boy.  My problem currently is that he is not practicing after I give him lessons.  In a Montessori classroom, the children see other children do the work and they get interested again.  I need to remember to pull out the work myself so he will get interested.  It works but I need to remember to do it!  How do you get your kids or students to practice?

Language
Articles Lesson with the Farm

Using the Grammar Symbols with the Articles and Nouns.

Geometry





There have been many more lessons that were not very exciting to take pictures of!  
For example:  Line and Point!

Human Anatomy


History

I am doing Story of the World Curriculum with the kids.  My kids LOVE stories on CD's so I got the CD's and Activity Book and they listen to the CD's OVER and OVER again.   We do some of the activities in the activity book.  I get the suggested books from the library and I then work Geography in there!

Geography
This is our Africa Continent Box. 

We are currently studying Africa to go with the Story of the World Chapters we are working on.  I sit and color with the kids.
