  • First Day & Curriculum 2014-2015!

    This is some of what I will be using for curriculum this year to teach 2nd&3rd grade.


    Math – RightStart Level C (I am hoping to finish Level C by Christmas and start Level D after our break) we have been doing RightStart since we started Kindergarten with my oldest.

     Grammar – First Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind Level 3

    Writing – Handwriting Without Tears 3rd Grade Cursive

    Spelling – All About Spelling Level 3

    Reading – I will still choose appropriate books for the boys to improve in their reading.

    It has worked well in previous years.

    I do like to include a book or story that has reading comprehension included once in a while so I can make sure they are retaining what they read.

    I will be tying Science, Geography, and History together again.

    Check out more about that, here.

    I will still be using the “Timetables of History” but also “The Big Book of History” and  the timeline for the Pharaohs from Answers in Genesis.


    I don’t have all of my books yet for science and history but will try to share what we use each month as we go.

    Since yesterday was our first day and a holiday we did not start right away.


    The boys and I rode bikes while Nick ran.

    It was a great way to start our school day!


    Since we had a late start and Nick was home, we did not do all of the subjects.

    You might have also noticed that we have moved our school area.

    It is now in the living room and dining room.


    I am really liking my dining room wall covered in school posters and our timeline.




    Cursive was a struggle at first but they started to remember how to form their letters after a while.


    Both boys were so excited about learning that they did several projects on their own after school finished!

    I always call the day a success when that happens!


    We also finally made Ice Cream in a Bag!


    Maybe we need to make more today…

    How was your first day?
