New Additions to our Curriculum

In the last month, I’ve really been adding to our ever-growing collection of Curriculum.
We’ve added Just Write, Daily Grammar 5 and Daily Grams for Natali.  All seem to be working out well. She likes the grammar SO much more than she did the Easy-Peasy Grammar. It’s simple, and to the point. She only does the “Just Write” once a week. I actually just ordered the teacher book for this but haven’t gotten it yet.
{Am I the only one who orders the book to see if the teacher’s manual is NECESSARY? It seems like a lot of curriculum are self explanatory and the extra books are just an added expense (cough.cough.Apologia.cough.cough}

I ordered Miquon Math for Emersyn. We weren’t doing anything formal for math, just lots and lots of counting and addition problems, as well as a few random worksheets a week. Hopefully, the Cuisenaire rods will grab her attention and make her LOVE math, like her Daddy. We just received this in the mail this weekend, so we haven’t had the chance to try it out yet.

I also ordered the Draw Write Now book but haven’t gotten it yet either. I wasn’t really looking for anything formal for art but my kids (especially Emersyn) love to color, so I thought we’d add in some drawing. (She has literally colored 3 entire coloring books in the last 2 months. Every single page, completely colored. She’s a coloring nut!)

Ive heard lots of good stuff about Draw Write Now and the book was only about $10 so I figured {What the heck!}
