Weekly Report--Sonlight Core C week 33 & 34

Well I missed last week because I have been busy planning! We are going to do two summer units(books and projects around a theme) this summer. So I had to put together a unit on China(the subject I chose) and one on butterflies(the subject princess chose). Check, that's done! I also have been planning for next year. I've been putting together my binder(which looks awesome!), looking for used curriculum, setting our goals and creating notebook and vocabulary sheets to use next year. Can you tell I like to be organized? What I learned this year was that if I don't plan for it in advance, it won't get done the way it should. So hopefully next year I will do better! All in all I am very excited about next year, it will be our third year homeschooling and I feel like we have finally found all the curriculum that will work for us. It's going to be a fun year! Now I just need to plan a christmas study and a chemistry curriculum, it never ends! With all the planning, we did manage to get some school in, here's a look...

LA: Princess has been chosing books from the library and is excited that she can actually read them. Since we have finished our reading program for this year and I don't want to start on next years, I have just had her read something of her choosing everyday. She's doing well and I'm very proud of the progress she has made. I plan on continuing this throughout the summer.

Math: We have been reviewing what we learned using Miquon. I also plan on continuing math throughout the summer. Princess loves it and I don't want her to forget all that we have learned this year.

Core C: We have been studying missionaries, some of them I'd never heard of. It has been interesting to read about them. We also finished House at Pooh Corner. When I closed the book for the last time, princess said, read it again, read it again! I'm glad that she enjoyed it.

Science: We talked a little about the states of matter, but mostly we have been checking out Let's Learn and Find Out Books from the library. Princess chooses three things she's interesting in learning more about and then we go find books about it. It has been fun, but I'm glad that we will have more structure when we start next year.

Hope you all had a great two weeks! Please scroll down and look at my used curriculum for sale (or trade) to see if you can use any of it. I'd love to have it out of the house! Thanks for reading!

I have a daughter that is going to be 5 in 2 weeks. I was excited to read your blog because Princess is just ahead of Raelee. I can get a good idea of where we are going by reading your blog. I hope you don't mind me linking your blog from mine. It's the only way I can keep up with them!

I can't wait until we read the House on Pooh Corner. I've been looking forward to it ever since we started Core C:) It sounds like you both have a lot of fun with learning! That's great that you've found things that work for you and that you like. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
