So, I know a lot of things are TBD…. but any thoughts? suggestions?
Just thought I’d say… I’ve figured out our Artists for the coming year….
I figured I’d check the website for the local art gallery… and there is a temporary display coming in the spring of 2012… Norman Rockwell! Boy am I thrilled! Guess who one of the artists is going to be? lol.
So – For World Artists…
Giotto (I’m eyeing the new portfolio… lol)
For Canadian Artists..
Inuit Art (not a specific artist… but style of carvings etc. again, the Art Gallery has a permanent display.)amandajhilburnParticipant
Just wondering why you are not combining your kids for year 1 and year 3? Or do you mean grades 1 &3? Seems like it would make your life easier to combine them….
🙂 Just my opinion.
Year 1 and Year 3 is Grade 1 and Grade 3…
I’ve combined them for almost every subject…
They are seperate for:
Math (he is in math 2a, she is in math 1b),
Handwriting/Copywork (he can write, although it needs improvement…, she can’t clearly write any letters… although she does “print” when she wants (often backwards… sigh)
1 book. (my son has already had read to him the first 2 books in Little House…. I tend to read him the 3rd, and my daughter the 1st…)
All the rest of that was together.
