Book 1, 2, and three

Art: I bought a book this year, plus we will continue with interesting stuff I find online. Crafts not so much, but some with his sister.

Music: Looking at a book, and I can play piano.

I have not added my reading list yet, because I have not decided it yet. I have looked at several options, and am leading towards kids books related to history, for this year. DJ reads all the time, so reading is not really an issue for him. Does not really need to be structured, or specific.

Our 3rd grade evaluation is set for August 23rd at 11:30 AM. If anyone is in the Gilchrist County, Florida area and needs an evaluator, contact me and I will give you the info of mine, she is great.

Tomorrow I go back to health care reform.

Thanks betchai there is still tons to do though. Caitlins is posted too, but I still have to make the school calendar, and make sure the books have the lessons I want. A lot of research left.

I'm skimming your curriculum post and saw your Roman Numeral comment. Surely there's some exercise somewhere; my son was given a whole packet by his gifted teachers last year. There's got to be stuff for you ... somewhere. Don't give up!
