Our Most Recent School Days...

Some history by way of the HBO
movie, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee...
too much for Chelsea...but the boys
and I really got a lot out of it.

Chelsea went and worked on her
writing while we watched this.

More History by way of another
Movie...Anne of Green Gables.
We are watching the third in the
series. This one is about WWI.

Literature, Bible and Vocabulary
come from In His Steps by
Charles M. Sheldon.
We are doing a unit study on this

Math. I am making worksheets
from the internet to do review of
the basics. We have also been enjoying
the process of learning more about
Order of Operation.

Unfortunately, we have decided to
basically ditch Teaching Textbooks
for now. I say unfortunately because
they were great for me...the kids did
them on their own. I found, however, that
they were just going through the process
and not really learning.

Oh well, what works for some...does not work
for all. We also had the issue of not having
enough daily computer time for all three to get
their lessons done.

The classes in Apologetics continue and science
goes on in various forms. Each child is at a
different place on the Science subject.

Chelsea wants to study grammar intensely since
it is her long time goal to be a writer who gets
published one of these days.

The boys continue to work toward their individual
interests basically self-directed with assistance
and support from us.

Thus school goes on....
