Hi friends! Every year I do a mid-year curriculum review just to assess our curriculum choices, make sure we’re on track, and that the curriculum is performing well for us. Mid-year is a great time to make any curriculum changes, start something new, and just freshen up your curriculum!
So far this year we’ve been really happy with everything we’ve selected, but we did change up one subject and I’m so happy we did! Find out what we changed, and how things are going for us this year in my 2016-2017 Mid-year Curriculum review!

Options: We also participate in a once a week options program through our local school district. They offer a variety of classes that help supplement our homeschooling. It also provides the kids with a fun day where they get to see their friends and participate in a classroom environment. Here is a list of her classes this year:
- Language Arts – We of course do this at home as well, but I’m finding that it’s a nice supplement to what we’re doing.
- Science – they get to do fun things like experiments, dissection, electronics, and more.
- Music – Choir and basic instruments
- Game Theory & Problem Solving
This year Turbo and Miss Lady Bug are both playing ice hockey. And all four kiddos are swimming as well. Once spring hits we usually move over to golf, swimming, and inline hockey. So they stay quite active!
