What Are We Learning by Year’s End? ~ Homeschool Week Wrap-Up

Happy Friday! J

Let’s try something a little different this week. We’re in the midst of wrapping up the school year with just a couple of weeks left, and so life has that nose-to-the-grindstone quality. Not much to report.

But would you like to know what my pupils are learning at the end of the year? I know I’m always curious as to where other children are in their studies, not because I’m competitive and want mine to be better, but because it’s good to be reminded that we’re on the right track. It’s encouraging to know that we’re all coming along nicely.

So, here we go by grade, and please know that these are just the academics and don't include music or Bible or any other extracurricular activities.

9yo/third grade ~
Language -- articles and commas and prepositions
Math -- review of four- and five-digit addition and subtraction, rounding up to hundreds, beginning multiplication
Reading -- American Girl books
Spelling -- finishing the third grade book and getting through weekly tests without distress now -- Victory!
Cursive -- two pages each day
{She did do science and history this year but has already completed both.}

11yo/sixth grade {He's a grade ahead.} ~
Science/Health -- nervous system
History -- countries and geography of South America
Math -- done for the year!
Language -- adverb phrases including diagramming
Reading -- I needed him to check but forgot to ask before he went to bed and now it's too late. In his free time, he's working through the Imagination Station books.
Spelling was done a couple of weeks ago.

13yo/seventh grade ~
Science -- types of trees, their diseases, and forestization
History -- test this week over WWII including important world figures and dates
Math -- sine, cosine, and tangent
Language -- independent and dependent clauses with diagramming
Spelling was completed a couple of weeks ago.
Reading is finished as well, but free reading continues all summer. Right now, she's reading Sherlock Holmes.

15yo/ninth grade ~
History -- countries and geography of Central America
Math -- positive and negative square roots with systems of equations {Her father oversees this. God bless that man. J }
Science -- currents, voltage, resistance
Spelling was done a week ago.
Language -- identifying and diagramming compound and complex sentences
Reading -- finished this week with reading If I Live Till Sundown (short story)

I pray that this is comforting and encouraging to you. You're doing a wonderful job, mom!
