Review Schooling

I’m excited for Lance. Yesterday was his first day with using SHOELACE BOOKS Simply Language Arts.

He completed a picture study which we did together and we talked about creation. I love, love, love, when God’s word is woven in with a lesson.

He completed copywork! Yay, it feels good to get him back doing copywork.

Yes, he needs a little work. I will sit with him and go over it with him. BUT!!!! This is actually good. Many times he has a hard time keeping the letters on the line.

I read our latest read aloud book: Douglas MacArthur.

We received the Unit Study Cd too, so the kids filled out a Douglas MacArthur Fact Sheet.

From the Critical Thinking Co. Caleb has continued using U.S. History Detective Book 1.
Critical Thinking Co.
He is only on lesson 9 because he stopped using it shortly after the review. Two weeks ago I had him start it up again.
U.S. History Detective Book 1
He was actually struggling a bit with it. Now for at least every other lesson I sit with him. First we read over the questions, then read the required reading pages, and as we are reading I am showing him how to interact with the book to help understand what he’s reading.

This is a thick and colorful book but don’t let that scare you from letting your child mark it up.

Although not all review items, here is what Caleb is using right now.

  3. We've used Shoelace Books! I thought she went out of business so it's good to know that she is still offering them for sale.
