What have we been up to...

It's been busy here! We've been getting used to having little guy around, which has been easy because he's been a great baby. We did have quite a scare when little guy had to have emergency surgery to repair a hernia. Thankfully he came through just fine, but I think it was quite possibly the longest hour of my life. Princess has been begging to do school again, so we have done a few days of it. So far, so good. I'm pleased with all that we are using and I think that third grade will be a very good year for us :).

I've also been putting the finishing touches on Elemental Science's newest program, Intro to Science. Intro to Science is a complete 36 week set of plans to introduce your early elementary student to the world of science. It is designed to be used with K and 1st graders, but the plans include ideas for adding in your older students. The main spine for this program is More Mudpies and Magnets. The plans include a weekly topic and introduction, experiments, nature study, plus additional books and activities. Two scheduling options are included so that you can choose if you want to do science two days a week or five days a week. The student pages include all coloring pages, experiment sheets and activity pages that you will need for your student. It's available for purchase as an eBook at this time and you can view samples of it here.
