Home Schooling


Homechooling material:

and Sam's club sells great material too.

     After I got Mario out of preschool, I started to homeschool him. He is a very smart boy.
A few sisters from my ward take turns to teach a bunch of children but the only problem I have with that is that I really can't handle more than two toddlers. Milo also likes to participate when I am homeschooling Mario. We have tried phonetics with Mario and something is not clicking for him. This Monday we are going to try to memorize some flash cards. I also downloaded a free app call Sight Words which will help him with his reading.  Mario turned 5 years old the last week of October, and I really think he needs to read by himself.  He is getting better at addition and subtraction with small numbers (10 or less). We use candy to visualize the numbers and he loves it.


Milo is also learning new words with flashcards. He speaks like a caveman. He says, "eat", or, "milk", "mas", "hurt", "wait me (wait for me)",  "luigi", "bob", "juice", and he really understands some of my Dominican Spanish.  Mario speaks Spanish with a very strong gringo accent which is so adorable.
I am so grateful for my boys. They bring me such happiness which makes everything seem dull compared to the love I feel for them.
Ps. Santa came early to my house, so I guess I was a good girl:)  (It is a Nikon D7000 with a Nikkor 18-200MM DX VR lens)


This is a picture of the boys at a buffet with Jared. I was feeling kind of sick and weak, so Jared took the boys out for lunch and they loved it. They are eating so much better. Mario ate eggs and chicken again the other day.  I am so glad that this vegetarian stage is going away.
My boys.
