Week 12 (2015)

Week 12 already! My time is going by too fast. Although it seems strange because I’m seeing post of many homeschoolers wrapping up their year and here we are just starting out. It’s been nice though because many of the Crew review items are at the beginning of our school rather than the end.
This has been a fun week with learning about Shays Rebellion. I enjoyed reading the interactive website about why and how it all began and watching clips on YouTube. Tonight or tomorrow we’ll watch 10 Days that Unexpectedly Changed America.

We also read The Declaration of Independence and listened read by Max Mclean. You can listen too.
Bible was great! We wrapped up the first lesson. It took us over a week to complete because there was a lot of good learning. We started Week 2/Day 1, so next week we’ll continue with day 2.
I didn’t realize how much I missed having the kids and I use a Bible study together (how sad!). They study the Bible but it’s been too long since we did this together.

The four younger kids have also been blessed to enjoy Summer Countdown by Amy Puetz. This is part of her Countdown Series. This week we started reading about Flag Day.
FYI: Summer Countdown will be released toward the end of this month.

The weather has been so nice that we’ve been schooling on the front porch.
Lance is doing so well with working through his PACEs. I love it!

All the kiddos have been using A+ Math. Caleb and Brent are using Spelling You See and I would like to start Ethan. As soon as I get a free shipping code from Christianbooks I’m going to order him the Americana book and I need to have Lance finish the 2nd book of Writing Tales. I love that it’s copywork and dictation. For some reason when it’s scheduled the way Spelling You See has it, it gets done.

Soon Ethan will start Latina Christina I. He’s excited that he’ll be receiving a review item all his own. Lance wants to continue with Prima Latina so we’ll see if that can be continued. I probably should combine them though.

Ethan has slowed down with using GPA Math because right now I want him to use A+. Once the three month subscription is up he’ll continue with GPA. My plan is to get him ready for Teaching Textbook 7 by the end of this year.

Being part of the Crew has been a huge blessing to my family and I’m so thankful for the opportunity.
