A new school year is upon us! It is the Thursday before school starts, officially for the public school kids around us and really for us as well since we tend to follow the district's calender.
last few weeks have been exciting in our household. Boxes have been
arriving filled with books and other sorts of things. I love that Alec
is getting excited about school. (that never used to happen) Yesterday
was a particularly exciting day for everyone because this arrived:
am working on our lesson plans for the first few weeks of school. We are
using a new science and grammar curriculum this year. (still on my
quest for a grammar program!) We are really excited about the science
program. I purchased Apologia from Sonlight.com so we'll see how it
goes. Alec did good last year, we learned about the periodic table of
elements. We used "Elements & The Periodic Table, What things are made of"
As well as some flash cards I purchased from an Usborne rep. by Basher
Science, and of course we watched Bill Nye videos as well. He created
his own giant periodic table of elements (drew pictures to represent
each element) and an element discovery time line.
that is all for today. It's time to get Cole ready for meet the teacher
night at his school and TKD right after. Enjoy the last weekend before
