Weekly Report

Well, we finished our first official week of school. Things went well as we began quite a few new curriculums.

High School: We began using BJU US History this week. DD really likes the text and the constant review of the main points along with the student activities book and assignments. We have also started reading The Scarlet Letter for some American Literature to go along with history.So far so good. Our other new curriculum is in Religious Studies where we are using The Inner Man byPositive Action for Christ. The discussion/teaching portion of this curriuculum has been very interesting and has sparked a lot of discussion. DD is continuting to plug through Piano,Saxon, Henle. This week two co-op classes British Lit and Physics will begin.

As for Kindergarten, my little K'er is excited and full of interest. We began our focus on Bible Study/Scripture Memorization and the basic 3 R"s with Abeka Phonics, Handwriting Without Tears Letters and Numers, Saxon 1 math, and Singapore Earlybird math 2B. In addition, we gave her and introduction to the globe, maps, directional compass, and community maps to prepare for our study of Countries and Cultures. Of course we never leave out Art because my little dd just loves it. Here is her first day of school artwork:

Back to School

The Summer just darted by.....We had a fabulous time trips..museums..amusement, family & friends. Now it's back to life....

We officially started school on yesterday. I always give 1st day of school "goodies", and all went over well for both the girls. I usually start a week ahead of my oldest dd's co-op, so that we can get used to our basic schedule before we are "on the road" twice a week.
I will complete a week in review at the end of the week..

"All have sinned and come short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23
