April Plans

During the month of April we will meet and go beyond our 180 days for the year. This will be our last month of kindergarten and second grade. The months of May, June and July will be transition months leading into first and third grade work and we will start these grades in full force in August.

So what are the plans for April?

We are back to more of a classical schedule and my girls are done with the fun of circle time. I will probably bring that back for November through January of next year if it is needed.

So to finish up Kindergarten my youngest is doing:

Rod and Staff Reading 1 Lessons 10 through 16
Earlybird 2b p. 4 through 21, it looks like she will be learning about addition.
Copywork will be the alphabet and then simple words from her reading lessons.

For second grade:

Phonics--ph, ough, oe, ey, igh, kn, gn and wr.
Aesop's Fables will continue but we are stopping with composition for the summer.
Story of the World--From the Rus to Joan of Arc
Singapore 3a--Long division and the six and seven tables.
Latin--Chapter 4 of Minimus
My Pals are Here Science 4a--Volume and states of matter

It looks to be a good month. After this is over we will be taking a two week break and coming back for summer transition school which should be a lot of fun. The month of May/June will involve some hard work as we do the eight and nine tables but after that we will be doing units on money and time.

Hope everyone else has a great month planned.

Great plans! Do you do more of a year round schedule since you are doing things that can be counted towards school, just keeping it light in the summer?

We do year round school to keep things fresh. This year it happened that the units in math on money and time fell during June and July so we are turning them into unit studies.

Our plans include the history of, the science of, the art of and doing math with time and money during the summer so it should be a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by.
