Weekly Wrap Up (Yes we are still schooling)

So I realized today it has been a very long while since I did a weekly wrap up. Yes we are still doing school, I just have not taken as many pics or gotten around to posting the last few months.

Evangeline started Heart of Dakota - Drawn into the Heart of Reading program awhile back and she is really enjoying it. It has been a really good way for me to offer her a chance to think about what she reads and offers her something mostly independent to do. This is something she really needed and so far is really enjoying.

Timothy is still working his way through Heart of Dakota's Emergent Reader books. Slow and Steady and I pray that he catches a fire for reading this summer.
He is also still working through a mixture of explode the code, beyond the code, and a little phonics pathways.

Math has been going slow for a few months but just in the last two weeks both kids have started to really speed through it again. Finally getting concepts that have been rattling around in there heads for awhile. :) We will be doing Math and Reading throughout the summer with both of them.

Evangeline completely finished her Reason for Handwriting cursive book this week. She will not be doing any more formal cursive but instead will just be using cursive for any copy work she may have to do. This program worked perfect for her and we did not even use the teachers guide. She simply did it anywhere from 2 to 4 days a week and we stretched it over 2 school years.

I have more than half of next years school books and will be keeping my eyes open for the rest used as I can find them. We are all really excited to be starting HOD and I pray it is the perfect fit.

The little guys have been doing a Toy Story preschool Pack only when they ask for school. So maybe 2 days a week.
Not surprisingly Haven has been more patient with it than Caleb. I am praying they will slowly grow into doing a bit more school work as I plan to start a gentle curriculum next year.
