We’re starting in fits & starts (is that the right phrase?) since we arrived 2 days before UNM started, and with a whole apartment to rearrange and dejunk! We’ve been experimenting with subjects and schedules, and we’ll more-officially start school on Monday.
I’m excited about their subjects this year, so I wanted to share those really quickly. For her extra subject, Emma is doing piano, for her science, she is learning biology from a DK book on “Life,” and – my favorite – for her history she is typing up a Pioneer journal and drawing pictures to make a book for the younger kids! Jacob’s history is Art History, where he picks a new artist each week and tries to copy their art. His other subject will change each day for a while (he just needs to pick “a learning book” for right now.)
Jonah is learning basic adding and subtracting and loving it, and he’s picking up reading fast!
More details to come after our first real week!
