Literature: James and the Giant Peach

Our reading book for this month is James and the Giant Peach by: Roald Dahl.  The girls chose this book because they thought it would follow last months book, Charlotte's Web, well.  Luckily for me, it will also go well with our science studies since we are currently learning about flying creatures.  In the past, we had daily assigned readings but we will be trying something new with this unit.

Our homeschool is very reading intensive and on occasion they children become burned out with assigned readings.  With this unit, we will have sections to read each week that we will go over once a week.  We will complete projects for that section on that day.  I have already begun uploading the vocabulary lists to Quizlet to allow for more independent study.  Hopefully these changes will help to make our homeschooling day even more enjoyable and functional without compromising their learning.  I will be sure to update this post and let you know how it went.
