The End Of Summer Nears
The days are getting shorter. The evenings just a little bit cooler. The end of summer is near. We dont officially start back homeschooling, until the day after Labor Day. We go a few weeks later, than our public schools do. I am actually looking forward, to getting back into a school routine. My kids are already sleeping later, in anticipation of getting up at a set time. We have already planned one field trip, to the Ocean. We will be going the same week, that we do the Ocean Life theme for science. I found a ton of Virtual Tours, and they are great for homeschool field trips. I will be sharing them here, on this blog, so keep watch. 3rd grade, is really just a repeat of 2nd grade, with some new material added in. Division, will be the biggest addition this year, to our curriculum. We touched on it, at the end of 2nd grade, but will dive right in for 3rd grade. This one has me a little nervous. I know how to do division, and math was one of my favorite subjects, but teaching it is completely different. We had a great summer. Swimming every day, trip to chuck e cheese, fireworks, birthdays, but now I am ready to get back to school. When do you start back to school?
