Curriculum 2016-2017

Image result for mount everest
Our first week is almost over, and I think the dust has settled - or at least I hope it has.  I had to make a couple of adjustments.  After all these years of homeschooling Emily, we finally decided to hold her back in 6th grade.  She had a late birthday for her grade, and she always was trailing behind on her work.  We are hoping this will give her a chance to catch up and not feel so overwhelmed with school work, which is not the idea when you homeschool.  Both of the girls took a science class with our local coop teacher to supplement the Apologia curriculum.  It meets once a week for experiments, demonstrations, and group projects.  They love their science classes! :)
