Viking Quest Series

Found a good possible book for Bri to read.

I have seen a few reviews and they are all good. 

Also found a link to a Parent-Tween Book Club.  You can find it here:

Here is a great devotional that we like to start our day with.  It has tons of great stories and fun activities.  We got a subscription and love it.

Can you believe it is almost Spring???

Ok, where did this year go? 

I am now planning my "Spring" session.

We are going to study Botany for Science.  Lots of great seeds to plant.

We are doing review in Math.  Trying several different workbooks, worksheets, and games.

We are using the Dear America Series for History/Reading.

We are still using copywork for handwriting. 


I am almost 100% positive that I want to go to "Rod and Staff" Curriculum for the next year.  Add and subtract what we can use, but keep us better on track.  Very highly rated and reasonable in price.  Check it out here:  http://www.thehomeschoolmom.com/homeschool-curriculum-reviews/rod-and-staff/

What is new in your classroom?
