Homeschooling Update {Week 7}

We now have 17 items in our book rotation {as part of our loop scheduling} and I can neither confirm nor deny that I am tempted to add more. 

After a few adjustments early on, we now have a cycle that includes math, language arts, Spanish, geography, American history {3 books}, world history, science {2 books}, health {2 books} world religions and mythologies {3 books}, art, and music. 

We have no logical reason as to why some subjects have multiple texts; we just found them interesting and added them and here we are.

Sharpened colored pencils in order from light to dark form a semi-circle.

On average we read 3-4 books from our loop each day. We used to go through more, maybe 5-6, but not read as much from each. We have found that we prefer to read more pages from fewer texts, even if that occasionally means finishing a few rather long chapters in one go and only getting to 1-2 books that day. It feels more focused. 

Our written work seems to be moving along at a speedier clip than in the past. The amount of time we spend on it seems to be about the same as previous years, so maybe the Agents are just getting more efficient? Most days, they work on “table stuff” {as they call it} for about an hour. Everyone does some written assignments for math, language arts, science, and social studies. Additionally, the older two {8th and 6th} do some written Spanish. They are also all working through this really cool human body coloring book. {Because who doesn’t love to color?}

Thanks so much for stopping by today. If you enjoyed this post, I would love to connect with you on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest.
