An interesting twist for the end of our school year….

Last summer we started our school year off in July. It was hot, and we could not get outside to enjoy the weather without getting overheated. So I decided it was a good time to start school. It really isn’t unusual for us to school year round, but July marked the beginning of this school year, and we will be finishing up most of our books by the end of this month! That is quite a strange feeling for me! I have already been thinking of what things we will continue to keep our skills fresh.

All of the children who can read will continue some sort of reading that I assign. And I will be keeping the 4 older ones on some sort of math practice. My 3rd and 1st grader really need to keep practicing their respective math facts. I am considering the Summer Bridge Books for Math for them. They also have a series of books on reading, but I like to assign their reading from good classics. My pre-algebra student will also have to keep doing his MUS. He just started a new book, so we have already talked about him continuing it until it is complete.

We will also do our year-end testing in April. I have been very pleased with the testing services of Christian Liberty Press, and I plan on using them again this year.

And I think we will do a few fun lapbooks over the course of the spring. I have one on airplanes that I think would make a great unit study. We have a small air museum not far from us, so that would make a neat spring field trip.

What are your school plans for the spring?

Have a blessed day! Tami
