March Homeschool Review

Our school review for the Month of March:

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 15:1-8

Reading: Lessons 171-191 in The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading.

Independent Reading: 10 books or Easy Readers. Plus Polly is now reading every box, every sign, every label, etc. I consider this a positive thing although it can be tedious at times!

Grammar: Lessons 53-62 in First Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind. Many of these lessons include copywork and dictation that must be done. No new poems this month but we reviewed all of the old ones.

Math: Lessons 85-102 in the Saxon first grade book.

Science: More books from the library about the human body and several projects we included in our Science notebook.

History: Chapters 10-19 in The Story of the World Volume 1. We skipped several chapters because we believe they are in the incorrect order.

Shakespeare: Twelfth Night and Much Ado About Nothing (Nesbit's).

Picture Study: 1 work by Van Gogh, 1 work by Renoir and a book about Leonardo Da Vinci. Made another art notebook for pictures and articles we've been cutting out of magazines.

Phys. Ed: 9 Tae Kwon Do lessons. Plus far too much "practicing" at home for my taste ("No, you may not practice your roundhouse kick on me!") Several nice spring days to play outside and dig in the dirt. (Polly is the tidiest child who ever enjoyed digging in the ground!)

Quiet Time: Listened to Pinky Pye, Now We Are Six, Winnie-the-Pooh (unabridged), and Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle on tape or c.d.

Family Read Alouds: Prince Charming finished reading Voyage of the Dawn Treader and is currently reading The Silver Chair to us at the girls' bedtime.

Special: Saw Robin Hood at our Children's Theatre. Had one glorious snow day (a Saturday) and made snow cream. Went to the library 7 times. Enjoyed a visit from Aunt LuLu. Celebrated Easter Sunday with one set of grandparents and one set of great-grandparents.

All in all a most satisfactory month!
