Spelling

Elisha is a very good speller and does not need support in this area as he picks it up naturally, but Moses and Malachi both need help with their spelling.

  1. I have really admired your blog for awhile now and visit when i have time. It was so fun to see that we have similiar tastes in education! We too will be doing MOH 1..and many of your other choices too. Now I am off to check out one of the resources you are using that I had never heard of. maybe I'll even find time to blog about our choices and why they fit us.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Hi Honey,
    It looks like fun! I actually finished homeschooling spring of last year but we all still talk about the wonderful books we read and I am not allowed to get rid of a single book, I am told! :-)

    You have a few of my favorites listed here. Of course, this is one of my favorite time periods to study.

    Enjoy your year! Those kids will grow up quickly! :-)
