Goodbye 20th Century!

ALL planned unit studies for the 2009-10 school year are finished!  To wrap up the school year by the end of April, we’ll be completing plans and texts for all of our other subjects and adding in a few fun writing, science and art lessons.  While the kids work, I’ll begin the process of putting together end of the year portfolios and start reorganizing the school room for next year!

I’m looking forward to spending more concentrated time with Eli and his preschool fun this summer as I start planning for our next school year.

As promised, here are some pictures of the completed Overview of the 20th Century lapbook from A Journey Through Learning.

Below are the books we used to round out the century.

Also, I just posted a review of Legends and Leagues over at The Curriculum Choice.  It’s a fun mapping curriculum for early and mid-elementary children that uses a literature book and workbook to teach several map skills.
