Like I said I was frustrated, but I reached out to my homeschool support group on Facebook and I feel better. My favorite comment was that, not all kids in brick and mortar schools are at the same level, every kid is at a different level in different subjects. That got me thinking, I found these free assessments to give your child to see what level he or she is at.
So after all my worrying, he is right where we are at in our current language arts curriculum. Yes he is behind, but I have to accept the fact that he will always be behind. So I will just keep trucking away and hopefully when my husband and I decide to enroll him back into the online school, he was attending, he will be ready. Keeping my fingers crossed.
So with that said, I created this neat little game call Long and Short Vowels Wishing Well. You can print out the templates here. Once you print out the stones with the words on them, glue the whole sheet of paper to a cereal box and covered it with clear packing tape and then cut out the stones. I am cheap so I don't have colored ink in my printer, but the activity is in color.
Here is what my set up looks like, again, yours will be in color, if you have a color printer.
