A few weeks ago we switched from a classical approach to textbooks, and the girls love it. It is not the way I wanted us to learn, but if that is what works best then we will stick to it.
In Science, she is covering Mollusks, Echinoderms, Anthropods, and Insects. She loves it; it seems like she can remember all the facts that she reads. She just enjoys it so much that is sticks with her.
In history, Baylee is studying the ancient middle east, the Phoenicians, Hittites, & Lydians. I don't think she likes history as much as Molly and I do, but she likes it enough.
Molly has been studying helping and linking verbs in grammar.
I just got her To Kill A Mockingbird, so she should start on it next week.
In Physical Science she is studying the applications of sound. I have no idea what is going on here. She goes to a class at our homeschool covering, and her dad helps her. She is working on a bridge project. Here are some pics of the bridge.
Molly absolutly loves the new history textbooks. She is using the 9th grade Geography book from Abeka, so she covered latitude and longitude, map studies this week.
Both girls are reading Matthew in the bible, and practicing their piano.
