The Students

Our class consists of four students who are on different levels. They have different interests and areas of focus.





Princess Flower has started 4th grade curriculum this year. She is a highly motivated and bright student. She has amazed me with her skills to grasp new concepts and put them into action. She loves to read and if I let her plan her own day she would be on the couch reading for the majority of it. She also has a creative mind and is always inventing or crafting something. Her least favorite subject is math although she does just fine with it.

This year's heavy focus we will be fine tuning her Language arts and writing skills and improving vocabulary and spelling. Extra curricular activities will include Mandarin, piano, and Keepers.

Current Curriculum and reading material we are using include:
1. Bible

2.A Portrait of an American Girl Study (includes all the American girl books. Covers History, Science, Language Arts, Creative Writing, Vocabulary, Reading comp, Map skills, geography, logic and other life skills)

3.Review activities for 3rd graders moving to 4th graders (a reminder of what we did last year and also includes a recommended reading list)

4. Abeka 4 Math

5. The Stories of Pilgrim's

6. America's Presidents

7. God's Wisdom for Little Girls

8. Chinese Made Easy for Kids

9. Piano Adventures

10. Keeper's of the home




Butterfly is moving right along and is eager to learn new things. She is very active and enjoys running and dancing. She does the best when she is one on one although enjoys our group activities as well. This year the biggest goal is to have her independently reading.

Her current curriculum and books include:
1. Bible

2. God's Wisdom for Little Girls

3. Preschool Comprehensive Curriculum

4. Tracing

5. File Folders and mis. worksheets

6. Teach Your Child to Read in 100 easy Lessons




Ladybug is eager to learn new things but her attention span only allows for so much. She requests reading lessons over all the other work. She enjoys singing and can learn anything quickly if put to a song.

Her current curriculum and books include:
1. Bible

2. God's Wisdom for Little Girls

3. Preschool Comprehensive Curriculum

4. Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons

5. File Folders and mis. worksheets




Dragonfly is our littlest learner. Although she will not be receiving any formal education this year, we will be working on motor skills, speech and language. I am sure she will pick alot more by just being around everyone else learning. As everyone in the house is picking up some of the Mandarin that Princess Flower is studying.
