Eventhough I’ve been doing this for nearly a decade, I am always looking to see how I could improve or what we could do to make things more interesting, have more fun, etc. Additionally, after a revelation that The Hunger Games was based a lot on Roman history, including that several of the main characters (especially in Songbirds) were named after famous Romans, I have become interested in pursuing some resources that we haven’t always made time for. And I have HUGE plans for next year, in case you haven’t seen my boards on Pinterest lately! Haha.
Other things we are loving:
Library curbside pickup
Riding bikes & scooters
Weekly Poetry Teatime
Implementing a quotation of the day, usually in Latin, from Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations
Old Peter’s Russian Tales (although the jury is out whether they’re fully PC or not…)
Online classes– my oldest just finished the Bravewriter Boomerang class for Emma, and she is hoping to write a comic book with several friends from the class! My 6th grader is taking middle school writing projects non-fiction with Brave Writer, as well as a 6th grade math class through our homeschool charter.
Online preschool– my 6 year old’s preschool is doing an online program for 30 minutes each day during the month of September. Today was my 3 year old’s first day, and I think she is warming up to the idea! Such strange times we’re living in.
Books– Everyone is loving their materials from the library, and I personally joined a Charlotte Mason book club on facebook. I’m hoping to learn more strategies and techniques that I can implement in our homeschool!
Tea, lots of tea! (and coffee too.)
That’s what we are loving this month so far. What are you loving right now?
