Little Schoolhouse on the Hill

So, recently school has been, how do you say it... Challenging? Yes. He is doing very well. He can read two vowel words now. His penmanship is much neater, and he is now coloring inside the lines.

What is challenging is his hardheadedness. If he isn't "in the mood" then he is perfectly content sitting there talking to his pencils and erasers. I can't motivate him to finish. And he purposefully answers incorrectly if he doesn't want to do it.

I have found that we have been struggling most with math. He has a hard time for some reason remembering the names of the coins we have gone over, Penny, Dime, and Nickle and their worth. So we have started our school time with his favorite Social Studies {no surprise really} and then writing and phonics, finishing with Math.

That way we start on a positive note, and I have noticed that has helped tremendously.

Some of where we are:
