Our Curriculum 2016-17 {Group Materials}

For our new school year we are keeping a little bit of the old and adding in some new.

We are reading through many of the books sited in Give Your Child the World
and LOVE that SCM's timeline allows us to read through The Child's Story Bible
as it plays out in HIStory~

Also from SCM we have chosen several enrichment units for 15 minutes each day:

(poetry tea time)

Wednesday: Art~ Claude Monet
(painting an art story)

Thursday: Music~ Chopin
(trying piano lessons online)

The old we will continue is Beautiful Feet: Geography Study on Fridays
since it is heavy on nature~
{they LOVE working with the big maps}

I think they are the most excited about this!
It will go well with our history study since we cover creation~

Among other things we do daily as a group are:

Journal Writing~ Brave Writer
FIAR (right before lunch)
Audible Books (during snack)
Chapter Book Read Aloud (after dinner)

There you have it... Everything is stored in a bin with days of the week folders
so it can be pulled quickly and filed away when we are done~

May seem overwhelming as seen in a post 
but all was chosen to simplify our day for a gentleness every child deserves.

(PS... I LOVE an open and go style of learning.)
(PSS... Curriculum being used with individuals coming in other posts.)
