New Curriculum picks for 4th grade

Even though we have been a year-round homeschooling family, this summer’s activities did not give us that option. So for the first time in several years, we found ourselves with a “real summer break” from school.

Other than a random poem or song lyric here and there, no real poems or quotes exist about Back-to-School.  So I decided to go [...]
