June 27th was our last day of homeschool for the 2011-2012 year! We homeschool August through June with one week off per month. In June we only do school 3 days a week, then we take the entire month of July off. The kids accomplished so much this year and I am so proud of the work we have all done! We had a big party to celebrate the end of they year.
We turned our front room into a homeschool gallery by hanging up and displaying art projects, writing samples, and other work we did during the year.
During the school day we worked on our memory books. We use these freebies from Confessions of a Homeschooler. (I LOVE her site!)
I also set out all of Gabriel's notebooks. For almost everything we do, Gabe makes a notebook page with a narration. It was so much fun to look at all of the pages he made throughout the year!
We ordered pizza for dinner and had a family presentation time. I asked both Gabe and Selah to think of something to do to show what they have learned this year. Selah chose to read a book:
When she was finished, our "principal", Daddy, presented her with her Certificate of Promotion to Kindergarten!
Gabe decided to sing two of the Seed's Family Worship Bible Verses we learned - and Mig helped!
Gabe was also presented a Certificate of Promotion to the Second Grade!
We had an outstanding school year! I am excited about what the next year will bring!
