We didn't have any activities to go to today, which was a nice, so this morning started quietly with some English and maths. Hannah has been working through some workbooks i picked up at the local book shop this term, but i'm not convinced about them. I spent quite a lot of time browsing the different options online, and am thinking i might order the Horizons curriculum again for those subjects for september. Anyway, she worked through a few lessons and then did a page in her picture journal.
Her hedgehog picture was inspired by her new subscription to The Hants and IOW Wildlife Trust who sent her a hedgehog poster with her welcome pack!

Then i put out her new paints and a pile of paper and left her to create!
Lots of pictures and a change of clothes later we went to the park. It was really, really busy as school had finished by then and the sun was shining, but Hannah still has lots of fun :-)

The Horizons Curriculum is it the one by alpha Omega Publishing? If so what drew you to this as a possible teaching resource, if you don't mind me asking?!! I've been wondering about Right Start Math for B courtesy of alabacus publishing.

Lovely pictures of Hannah, that gal is always smiling!!!

Hugs to you both San and all xx

Yes San, that's the one. We used Horizons for K grade as we had friends here from the US who brought the pack over for us and Hannah got on really well with it. We went for something UK based this year as i thought it might be more appropriate and more financially manageable but Hannah hasn't enjoyed anything as much as Horizons. So, after much searching i'm going to go back to what we know suits her! It's so child friendly, looks fun, easy to follow and i'm confident with it :-)

Hannah looks like she is having a great homeschooling day! You have quite the little artist there!

I am so glad to hear that you are considering using Horizons once again for Hannah. If there is anything we can do to help the conversion go smoothly let us know!

Thanks very much Ryan, really appreciate that :-)

Thanks for the info Susie, I will look into it further. Just a thought did you buy a full curriculum or just the math and english components?

Just English and Maths - we're not structured enough for anything else atm!!
