Homeschool Wrap-up

This week in our homeschool we did get some things accomplished.  We have been working on starting our timeline to go along with our History.   We are using The Story of the World this year and we are really loving it.  We are also doing a lapbook that I found at The Chronicle of the Earth. Here a couple of pictures of our timeline.

       

And here a of picture of our lapbook.  This shows chapter 1 – 9.

In English and in Math we are using ACE.  In English she is working on Subjective and Objective verbs and in Math she is working on long division and reducing fractions.  I seem to have to reteach both these skills every week.

In Science we are using a science curriculum I found for free on the internet.  It is not bad.  The only cost is the printing.  I guess she could read the lessons on the computer, but I usually print it out.  There are questions, puzzles and activites to go along with each lesson.  The website for this curriculum is Classic Science. 

In spelling, I made up my own curriculum.  I found a series word lists and I’m using those as a base list.  I do change the “academic words” to correspond with our science curriculum.

We are using Writing Strands for Creative Writing.  It is slow going but she is learning a lot.

We are also doing a Geography curriculum that I wrote.  You can read about it at Geography Curriculum Script, the post was on Jan. 4th, 2012.

In the curriculum you use a large wall map like this one.

And then you put together a report on the state which includes state information, a fmaous person sheet and much more.

                   

On the last day you put a sticker in the passport and choose the next state.

            

I have this curriculum for sale for $10.50.

This week we have been working hard to get our work done.  On Friday we go to a co-op from 8 – 11 am and then eat lunch with the other families. My daughter is taking three classes at the co-op.  They are:  The Young PeaceMaker, Book Club, and Sign Language.  We really enjoy going to co-op.  Being the only child left at home, this is a time for her to be with her friends.

I hope you enjoyed our “Homeschool Wrap-up”

Blessings,

Colette

    I wish Haydn enjoyed lap books. I was very excited about them when we started homeschooling. Maybe I will try again next semester.

    I love your idea for putting a timeline in a modified lapbook form! Been wanting to do a timeline but no room on the wall! Thank you for solving my problem 🙂

    No we used free hand on some and the coloring sheets from her history book for some others. I also bought timeline figures from Sonlight that we haven’t used then yet.
