First Day of School 2012

We had a great first day of school together today!  I'm excited about this new year and all the new things we're going to learn, me included!  We are once again part of a  Classical Conversations community and I feel much better prepared this year then I was last year.  I know what to expect and what realistic expectations are for my kids.  Mati will be joining us this year, too, and he is very excited about that.  Here's a list of the rest of our curriculum for this school year in case you're bored or wonder what us homeschoolers actually teach our kids.

Bible- God's Great Covenant
Language Arts/Grammar/Handwriting- Writing With Ease Level 2, First Language Lessons
History- Story of the World Volume 1
Spelling- Spelling Workout Level C
Science-  Read and Understand Science
Math- Right Start Math Level B

We will also cover geography, Latin, more grammar, history, science, art, music, and math as part of our weekly memory work for Classical Conversations (CC). We will also be reading a ton of books each week- one of our favorite parts! Seems like a lot seeing it all written out like this, but it went very smoothly today.  I have a very eager student which makes my job a whole lot easier!  And don't forget about Mati- he'll be listening in as much as he wants to Haven's school work.  We've got lots of things for him to work on as well and he'll be part of our CC review time, too.

Here's to a new year full of learning about God and the world He created!
