I am so glad that I switched our 5th grader over to new curriculum midway this year. She is really, really enjoying her work with Moving Beyond the Page. It is the kind of learning we both love: Lots of living books and hands on projects.
Here is yet another project from her Human Body unit
She finished up her units on Lincoln. state government, and a Wrinkle in Time. So I went ahead and bought her another literature unit to get her through the end of the school year and it is all about American Tall Tales.
