Re: (no subject)
your schoolhouse programs sound awesome! What fun :) You get to cover
an earlier time period in history than our schoolhouse does. We do
the late 1800s-1950 when our school was actually a prairie
schoolhouse. Our program's been running 20-some years.
Now we generally run 6 weeks of classes, weekdays, 8:30am-12:30pm
each summer. We usually have 3 different weekly themes--this year's
are Old Time Tales (reading a chapter or so a day from a children's
classic then doing something similiar to what characters in the
stories do); Our Community of Colonies (looking @ the different
groups of people who settled our area); Life on the Home front (a
different sort of class for us, away from the pioneer timeframe and
mindset: what life was like for kids during WWII).
It's fun to hear what others do!
