Our HOD week in Review

We homeschool on a schedule of 9 weeks on 2 weeks of so currently we are in the first part of our 2 week break. This week I just wanted to write a short post about the wonderful emerging book selections in the Beyond manual.

Big Sis who is almost 7 and in the first grade has thoroughly enjoyed the books this year.

So far she has read Animal Adventures and The Bears on Hemlock Mountain. Last year she enjoyed many such as Amelia Bedila, the CLP Nature Reader, Josephina Story Quilt, Prairie School and Wagon Wheels just to name a few.

These emerging readers have won a spot in her heart as wel as my own. I'm so thankful for the obvious time and thought that went into putting this list of readers together.

For an extra activity to go along with Animal Adventures I had Big Sis finish off the book with the Character Mask activity from the Book Projects to send home level 2/3.

I really like that book and am glad to have it!

Here is a picture of her activity:

Here is the finished project of Biggest's that I mentioned here. Scroll down to the bottom to read the little blurb on DITHOR.

All in all the stories that we are introduced to with HOD have been the highlight of this program! What a blessing this has been to us!!
