SCIENCE: She will be doing science this year with Silas, using Winter Promise "The World Around Me". I have changed my mind several times, but when the teachers guide came in the mail, I knew she would love this living books/hands on approach to science!

HISTORY: She will be using Story of the World Volume 1 as her main "spine". I have the Activity Guide, and will be adding at least one living book each week, one hands on activity, and the mapping and worksheets. Silas will be using this with her.
Softcover Text, Volume 1: The Ancient Times, Story of the World

ART: We are using and will continue to use Artistic Pursuits.

So - this will be her 3rd grade year! What are your 3rd grade choices?


  1. I hope that you will enjoy Winter Promise and lovely choices for literature! Did you see that CBD now carries MUS -- can hopefully save some on their high priced shipping costs :)

    You could "row" Madeline, too! A fun year!

    1. Yes, I ordered the Gamma set from CBD! I try to order as much as possible from them.
