Not Sure If You Noticed.

23 Jun

I’m not sure if you noticed, but I totally switched up the curriculum that we did last year. Wow. Took me forever to get that updated here. I still haven’t updated for the 5th grader. SMH. That’s the big reason for the Ancient History plans being at a standstill. No worries, they are still going up (although slowly).

We are, of course, working right through the summer. We rarely take a full summer off. A few people asked me about summer school, and although I don’t know of any online summer school programs, you might think of checking out Time4Learning for summer work. My children did very well with the program. I always thought it wasn’t enough, but I’m really amazed at how often I ask, “where did you learn that?” and they answer, “Time4Learning.” Go figure. Anyway, it’s good for brushing up over the summer. Filling in the blanks. Making sure the kids are all caught up and fresh for the new school year.

I’m currently (and sporadically) working on a different site to list all the resources I have. It’s a ton. So, look for that by summer’s end. Summer’s end. We just started and I’m already talking about the end. *sigh*

Let’s take it one day at a time. Today is Sunday and we really have no solid plans. Kids will do their own thing and I’ll probably clean house and work. I’m hoping the weather is a little cooler. We tried to hang outside yesterday, but it was just too hot. I really want to catch up on all my reading. I have a TON of Stephen King books to catch up on. Oh, and Joe Hill. 🙂 But I’m working on staying on top of my priority list, and unfortunately, reading, guitar, and other things I love to do don’t get much attention.

World History: The Human Odyssey – Unit 1, Chapter 1 Vocabulary

25 Sep

Created this vocabulary file for Chapter 1. My kids wrote out their own vocabulary in their notebooks. This is useful for the child that has issues with writing or can be helpful to mom/dad (teacher).
