taxonomy/term/7/?f%5B0%5D=im_ field_grade_level%3A7 We will be doing their Grade 3-5th. And Magnolia will do TGATB Level 2 Language Arts since it’s free to print off. If we end up not wanting to finish it, I may switch her to MasterBooks language arts, we will see how the year goes.
- Mid year: We will add in a typing course for 4 older boys around January.
- We do Art Lessons twice a week. We look up Bob Ross painting videos, watch Kids Art Hub, and find other drawing, painting and art classes online for free. One of my sons really wants to take a full illustrating course, so I will find a good one for him to take.
- We do music lessons 3 times per week. We take online classes from https://prodigies.com/
- We use Project Friday to explore additional hands on skills and training. Most of our Project Friday’s lately have been coming from our own new homesteading curriculum: https://
