Despite being 4 days post-op we managed to have a totally normal first day back to school – which I am so grateful for!! Adelaide is officially in Kindergarten and Frankie is in 4th grade!
We are doing a combined curriculum with an emphasis on The Good and the Beautiful for History, Science, and Literature. Adelaide is focusing on learning to read, phonics, letter recognition, and we’re also introducing science, art, math, and geography to her curriculum this year. Frankie’s subjects include Math, Science, History, Grammar and Spelling, literature, art, critical thinking, and cursive. We’re also doing “read alouds” that coincide with Frankie’s history program, read aloud fairy tales for Adelaide along with Aesop for Children for both Adelaide and Frankie.
Our field trips this year will include George Washington’s Headquarters, The Trenton Battle Monument, Washington Crossing Park, The Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, and an RV trip through New England this fall.
Looking forward to co-ops opening up again hopefully in 2021, but until then Adelaide will be playing soccer and dancing at ballet school and Frankie will be playing travel basketball and soccer.
Wishing you all a super successful and fun school year!!
