Our 2013-2014 Curriculum: 3rd Grade and Pre-K4 {times 2!}

This post contains Affiliate links


I have to be honest here…I have been blessed with three kids that LOVE to learn and are ALWAY eager for school! This was the first year that we took summer off…we probably will never do that again. Elias {8} was so distressed that we were not doing math and science all summer…I caught him more than one doing math {My BFF Angie will understand that 😉 }

School curriculum is like a legal drug to me…seriously…my hubby took me to our local Homeschool book store ONCE…never again 😉 I think I’ll have to rely on the above mentioned friend for my curriculum fix! With that being said I tend to get a little of everything and see what works and what doesn’t! That’s just what works for us!
