We have taken on a new adventure recently and are having a ball so far.
It is a lot of work, but completely rewarding for both parties. We are home-schooling! We are in our 4th week now.
The other day after journal time...I have to admit I peeked in their journals and read, "I want to learn more about the rainforest". This was written by Baxter. They woke up to a surprise on Monday morning: It's RAINFOREST WEEK! They are reading, writing, spelling all things Rainforest!
This is called a unit study.
