Whoa, we’ve been homeschooling for two years already?! I know it’s trite, but truly, where did that time go? Homeschooling has been such a blessing for our family, and now that I have two years of experience under my homeschooling mama belt, I’m feeling very comfortable and excited about the upcoming year for us.
While we actually never took an official summer break because learning is such an integral part of our daily life, I did “sort of” declare the beginning of 2nd grade to be last week. Rather low-key, I’m afraid, but thankfully Sunshine Girl didn’t seem to mind the lack of fanfare.
Here is a rundown of our upcoming winter term:
Daily – Copywork, Math, Reading, and Spanish
Several Times/Week – Science/Nature Study, American History, Geography
Weekly – Artist and Composer Studies, Art and Music instruction/appreciation, Handicrafts (woodworking from Dad, crocheting, and sewing)
Regular Life – Cooking, Outdoor Skills, Mechanics (from Dad!), and lots of field trips!
