We officially began our 2014-2015 school year on 15 September. So, technically we have completed two full weeks, although the first one was quite honestly kind of a blur, because we also moved into our new house that week. Following is a little about what we've done so far.
Week one we mostly spent trying to wrap our brains around homeschooling in a new state, organizing the school/play room, and going over our chosen curriculum ideas.
|Agent J and a crazy fountain, just because.|
We decided to read biographies of famous Americans as part of our US history studies. We are starting with George Washington and Betsy Ross. Our new library has a whole wall devoted to biographies, so we may just work our way through randomly.
Once again we're talking about outer space (per Agent J's request). Didn't really do much this week other than read a book or two, but this is a topic we come back to often. Have I mentioned that Agent J's current chosen career aspiration is Author Astronaut? (Writing books about space, from space. Yeah, I know.)
Trying to introduce some basic first aid skills for health this quarter. We've been reading about common illnesses and injuries and brainstorming ideas for self-care.
