Started school

We started school last Monday. Our first week went very well.

Bella really enjoyed learning, and this week I'm adding more for her. I went back looking at all I have and found SL core C (which was K years ago when I used it with Emilie and Olivia.)I have most of the read alouds and the History/Geography books. Bella is way above the readers listed, so I'm going to have her read some of the "read alouds" as readers. They are all grade 3 and above reading level. She is reading Children's Encyclopedia IL for science and joining the "sisters" for Apologia General Science. She is doing Rod and Staff Spelling, Explode the Code 5, Learning Language Arts Through Literature (LLATL) Red book,and Math U See classic Foundations.
