The boys are excelling in school. Jayson has taken off in his reading and is starting simple chapter books on his own. Sam’s math skills are off the charts. They are able to help each other with their different skills. It makes me proud to see them enjoy learning at school. Their school is a magnet school, with a focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and performing arts.  The boys started learning how to play the violin with the Suzuki method in kindergarten. As they get a little older there are other programs in STEM that will be available. Since they are only in first grade, I can easily help with homework that is sent home each week. They are in separate classes which means two different sets of homework each week, but the same reading lesson and spelling words. They are learning using the Common Core standards for Arizona.
Occasionally there is a method or step that I am not familiar with and I have to look it up online. It is usually easy to find on the common core website; however, it would be nice to have some additional exercises so I can fully understand the concepts. That is where TestingMom is a big help for myself and the boys.



They have sample questions and lessons for all the state standards, for Pre-K to 8th grade. The site allows you to grow your child’s love of learning while having them play fun skill-building exercises.  You don’t have to take my word for it, here are some reviews and testimonials from other parents that have used TestingMom.  To receive 100 FREE questions, click on the image below.
