Columbus Sailed the Ocean Blue…


Hailey is studying US history this year and we are both absolutely loving it!  We are using Sonlight, and I have to say this is the first time I am not even considering switching curriculum.  I love the books we read together and we have both learned so much!  Since Sonlight does not offer a lot of hands on activities I do add those in, as Hailey loves doing those too.

Back when we were learning about some of the explorers who came to America, we studied Christopher Columbus.  In addition to reading books about him, Hailey worked on a map that showed the route Columbus took when he landed in America.

This is her completed map (from an activity book called Interactive 3-D Maps: American History).

Box Day Fun


After much time spent researching, I decided to use Sonlight for both Hailey and Hunter next year.  So, I placed our order and soon after our boxes arrived.  We love box day- it’s so fun to get our new curriculum!

Hunter was very excited to get his box.

He started checking out all of his new books right away.

Hailey was very excited about her box too.

She couldn’t believe how many books they were able to fit into the box.
I ordered some summer reading for her too, so she got started reading her summer books right away.

I am definitely not wishing away the summer, but we are excited to use Sonlight in the fall!!
