Well, we are in our last week of the regular homeschool calendar. My 2 youngest should be finished with their math this week (which puts them ahead, since our school year ends at the end of July). We’ll continue on to the next grade but we’ll do math every other day on our summer school weeks. (we school every other week in June and July) We’ll be having a strong concentration on science, finishing our study of Egypt (in another 2 weeks) and critical thinking skills. We’ll be working some on our language arts (we are doing a year long study of the Lord of the Rings) but it won’t be the thrust of the summer schedule.
My 2nd oldest son needs to finish his Constitutional Law class (he is behind but should be able to finish in the summer) as well as his biology and will join in our critical thinking skills focus for the summer as well.
Considering how irregular our schedule has been, I’m really quite happy with how much homeschooling we’ve accomplished these last 2 months. I’d be happier if we had cheerful hearts with every day of school, but I will leave that to the Holy Spirit to work on! We’ll continue with our study of Proverbs for now (unless Kevin decides he wants to do something different with the boys this summer).
How is your homeschool ending? Has it gone as well as you’d hoped? Do you need to revamp for next year? We always have some changes to make every year.
