School is in the house

We are having a lot of excitement this evening.  School is starting and my granddaughter wants to start her classes earlier then the public schools.  To be honest she has not been able to wait and start using her new school workbooks.  We are using the Life Pac curriculum which I had mentioned in a past post.  I am impressed by what I see each group comes with a teachers guide and lessons guide, report card, how to teach each lesson and were a child should be and/or learn at a certain grade.  Plus more.  The lessons are not to long and will easily hold the child’s interest.

I am planning on several field trips, not only to teach different lessons through hands on lessons but to demonstrate to my granddaughter that there is so much out there that is free or affordable and fun to do.  The zoo class in spring does cost 95 dollars but it is well worth it and she will get not only lessons on the animals but learn what it takes to care for them and how to take an interest in respecting animals in their own environment.  Should be fun.  We are going to start a fundraiser for it also soon.
