We have been going strong with homeschool this year. We are 20 + days in and we are all learning a lot. Each day is different depending on what we are doing and how Leeland is doing. I have a simple lesson plan ( here is where I got the template from) with our “essentials”. The girls take turns highlighting each item on my list when we are done. I am going to write up our plan for school this year. Every year I go through a great debate with what curriculum we need to use, order, what will be best to teach the kids. With that in mind, I would like to share some of the items that we have purchased this year and are enjoying.
- Science- Fun Science Lessons from Curious Kids Science Book by Asia Citro. I have followed her blog for over a year and have enjoyed all her hands on art projects. This is her 2nd book but the first science book she has put together. It’s fun, easy, open ended, engaging and gets kids to ask questions. We try to do at least one science experiment a week. Hopefully, this winter we will implement “Science Saturday” where the kids will be doing science lessons with dad or as a whole family. Here are the lessons that we have done so far. We are doing the water unit.
