Ok, so I don't know about where you live, but school starts here in my neck of the world in less than 2 weeks.
I got the last 2 books in the mail today to begin our schooling adventure for an entire year this time!
As most of you know, I pulled my girl out of school in February of her 3rd grade year. Our thoughts were, if it was a total fail, well she could probably go into 4th grade this year unharmed.
Well, there is no turning back now and what a positive thing. What a solid decision.
It is just one of those things that I feel really good about. It is RIGHT. I feel at peace and calm about my three year old not having to do the public school thing at all.
Though I am adding, and substituting out in a few spots-
we are sticking with the ambleside online curriculum and the books are AMAZING this year. I wish this was how I learned!
(Though I guess I will be learning from them after all. right ?? ;-) )
I wanted to tell you about my three favorites so far:
- Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the contributions of the
Mississippi River, both past and current, to our nation.
- Students will be able to articulate basic facts about the river itself and some of the
various life forms that exist in and through it.
- Students will understand the life cycle and basic characteristics of the Snapping
- Students will be able to draw correlations between the characteristics of the Snapping
