Voyager News - September Edition


Our first month was pretty different. 
We spent our first day just having an overview and then walking to the millpond for a photo shoot.
 Then we also had our homeschool groups kickoff event.

Again, we started school in the middle of a chapter. 

Weaver, Vol. 5, Ch 11
Again, we do Weaver three days a week.
This month we have done days 8 - 15.

Our Bible lessons have been from Matthew and we have been discussing the few days right before the crucifixion.

In Social Studies we have been learning about life after 1865 up to WWI.
We have talked about inventions and got to sample some fun ones, like malted milk balls and chewing gum. 
We have learned about the Allies, Central Powers and discussed President Wilson.
