Catch up - what's going on this school year
I am using Ordinary Parents Guide to Reading
Handwriting without Tears
Saxon K Math
Happy Phonics and Explode the Code
Science through Children's Literature
Social Studies through Children's Literature
The Storied Scriptures from the School of Abraham
We are also attending a co-op every other Thursday where he has art, music and PE.
It's really going great this year, it's a very relaxed year, as the house is on the market and I am due with baby #3 in the next 4wks or so. But we try to cover atleast Reading and Scriptures every day, as well as hitting the other stuff depending on his and my mood. He is loving it though, and Zane (my 17mos old) likes to sit and participate as well, he especially likes the math manipulatives.
We have had some great 'field trips' too this year, we went and camped on Assateague Island and saw the ponies, we went apple picking, we went to South Mountain Creamery to feed the calves and get some ice cream
We have had some yummy cooking projects too, we have made applesauce, pumpkin choc chip cookies, pumpkin muffins
We have started reading chapter books for bedtime...we have read Dolphin Adventure, Charolotte's Web, My Father's Dragon
