I'm doing this post in conjuction with the Homeschool Lounge Open House. For your chance to win prizes, you might want to enter too:
Luke (6) will be doing 2nd grade work this year using the following curriculum: Easy Grammar, McGuffey reader, MCP Spelling, MCP Math, and handwriting. Cameron (5) will be doing Kindergarten and will be using this curriculum: Covenant Home Phonics Program, MCP Plaid Phonics, McGuffey reader, MCP Math, and handwriting. I will also be doing some of this with Miriam (3) & Levi (2). I needed to find something for Miriam & Levi to do because they wanted to be at the table with Luke & Cameron but they were always interrrupting their work. Hopefully, Micah (1) will continue to nap while the others do school work.
We will also be doing Tapestry of Grace again this year for our history curriculum. To see some of projects we did last year, click here. We will also be having fieldtrips with the same homeschool group that we had last year and we will try to coordinate some of our Tapestry projects with the Shelbys as well.
Last year we tried to do Apologia Science: Flying Creatures, but it didn't seem to hold the kids' interest. I am going to try to do "Science Saturdays" using Apologia Science: Astronomy. This just looks more interesting to me!We typically do school work at our kitchen table. We just got a new table and benches so we'll see how this goes this year.
The table has storage below in case we decide to use this for our everyday school books.
This is the desk in our school room/guest room. I store our daily workbooks here. You can also see the boxes that have our markers, crayons, etc on top of the desk.
