A little note on curriculum progress: We made it through the Greek material up to Week 29 before we brought our son home. We did a broad sweep of the material after Week 30 focusing on a book about Alexander the Great, Aesop's Fables, review of our memory verses. Other subjects like Math, Wordly Wise, Grammar, and Explode the Code will be finished in the upcoming weeks of summer. That part usually takes about 45 minutes a day so.... right after breakfast until the neighborhood kids come a-knockin!
A few highlights from the weeks between trips to Ethiopia:
- Reading the Greek Myths was a huge hit and my 3 students took to acting them out and pretending to be the gods and goddesses in their free time. We also read aloud the Percy Jackson series to further our knowledge of the Greek heroes and myths.
- Memorizing scripture verses turned out to be something we could do anywhere, including airplanes and hotel rooms.
- Taking their journals on the trip allowed them to draw or write about their new experiences as they happened.
