I am a nerd. And I take it as a compliment when someone says that I'm a nerd. It's what makes me...well...me. And I'm pretty confident in who I am. And, I want to make sure that I am passing this "nerdiness" down to the Monk. He deserves all that knowledge has to give him.
Last week, we studied the animal kingdom. We talked about what types of animals have backbones, which animals don't. We talked about the animals around the world and practiced our writing. I have to confess that this week's lessons didn't go over as well as I had hoped. For some reason, there wasn't much interest (apparently, the Monk is burned out on doing lessons each and every day, so we've had to cut back and only work on Tuesdays and Thursdays - which is fine. I want him to enjoy learning, not dread it). We did make it to the library and even watched a couple of animal movies (Cats & Dogs and African Cats). Our next unit is dinosaurs, so I know that it will be much more engaging for him. Well, here's hoping anyways.
