Weekly Wrap-up! Summer School

I'm a little late posting our weekly wrap-up, but here goes. Rylan and Tanyn are still really enjoying Little Hearts for His Glory. It is such a wonderful curriculum, open and go, which is what I really needed. I am scheduling challenged. This week they learned not to let fear debilitate them, by learning about Daniel in the Lion's den and Shadrach, Meschach and Abednigo. (Pretty sure those are all misspelled.) The painted a wonderful picture showing the three being protected from the fire by God's Angel.
Wednesday we had a beautiful day and decided to spend the day at the zoo. We, as usual, had a great time and enjoyed wandering around. I found some really cool Animal notebooking pages that I'll probably have the kids do, to focus their zoo time. We spend so much time there, we probably ought to make it a little more education. I made a mistake and bet Koty about an animal fact, I of course was wrong. The kid is a zoo ninja. I guess being a Zoologist might be perfect for him.

Thursday we went over to the Nature Center to wander around for a little while. They have a little education area, where Ry and Sissy decided to put on a puppet show. Very cute.

Finally, if it seems like the big boys didn't do any work, it would be because they didn't do any work. Hunter and Dakota have had a short break before we start summer school. The boys will be doing Geometry and Biology, along with the reading program offered by heart of Dakota; Drawn into the Heart of Reading. We have finished Tapestry of Grace Year 1 and decided that it really didn't work for us. I'm not organized enough for it, I guess. Heart of Dakota is putting out a curriculum this fall that we're really looking forward to. I think it will be great for Dakota and with a little tweaking will work for Hunter, the fact that it is open and go is perfect for me.

Head on over to Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers to see how others spent their week.

What a fun field trip!

I'm a bit the same way with curriculum. I like to start with something that I can just open and go then adjust to my liking. I have no need to reinvent the wheel. LOL I'm more of a tweaker.
