A Gentle Feast: Cycle 3 Term 2
Let me start off this review with an Instagram post I shared at the beginning of Term 2. This is a peek at what our neat little homeschool family "should" look like, with the perfect social media lenses on (actually, it's even a bit messy per those standards here!):
Learning is messy and there are too many busy young men in this house to pull off the neat "farmhouse chic" vibes. So to keep it real, most days, this is us:
- Cycle 3 Curriculum
- Cycle 3 Morning Time
- Songschool Spanish
- E/3rd Grade: AGF Lower Elementary Language Arts (Print Font), Singapore Math 2B
- W/Kindergarten: Phonics Museum (that I found on eBay), Singapore Math 1A
- C/Pre-K: Preschool Workbook that I bought online (on Christian Books, I think), homemade Letters & Numbers notebook
- S/Babyschool: Cheerios, applesauce with spoon to make a mess with, matchbox cars
We have swapped out the Solfa in the curriculum for piano lessons (with mom) for the older three boys, as interest leads. Really I wouldn't start a 4-year-old on piano but I help him a little here and there, if he wants to practice like the brothers.
For our Hymn Study, we switched from using the Happy Hymnody resources to going by A Gentle Feast's hymn schedule. This has been really helpful because the sheet music is already in the Morning Time binder and I can play the piano for our hymn study (personal growth for mom right there)! This was a great change for us because the less we use YouTube, the better off we are. It ends up being a big distraction!
