The last couple weeks we have had bumps in the road. We make so much progress and then we go backwards. Right now is the time we are going backwards. It’s frustrating but we will get through it. Seizures and high blood pressure are the bumps in the road right now.
I love incorporating games into our studies when ever I can, especially math games. We recently had the chance to review Sunya-The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Adding & Subtracting by a new company called Sunya Publishing. This game is geared for children ages 7 and up.
At tax time I was looking around for a new science program for the kids. I came across Science Shepherd and was intrigued that each lesson for science had a video. So I knew at that point I really wanted to give this curriculum a try. I purchased Introductory Science Video Course and purchased two workbooks for level A. The ages for this course are 6 – 11. There is a Level A and Level B workbook. I also purchased the Answer Key in case there was something I didn’t know.
Over that last month we have started working on Ancient History starting from creation and ending with Alexander the Great. My daughter has been fascinated and engaged in the many different activities that just bring it to life. We received Heroes, Heroines, and Tales of Ancient History Digital Version by Amy Puetz for our review. This curriculum is for grades 1 – 6. It has a beginner section for grades 1 – 2 and a more advanced section for grades 3 – 6. The curriculum spans out for 30 weeks.
Here is what you get:
Now is the time of year where I start winding down. We still do school work in the summer but it isn’t a full load like during the school year. That way things aren’t lost and we can keep going. There will be different things going on this year so we have to adapt to changes as well.
