Bible - We spent November studying the life of Daniel. Since the 4 older kids had performed the church musical about Daniel this summer, this was just a refresher for them.We made books about Daniel's life. Here are their pages about Nebuchadnezzar's golden image and the fiery furnace.

Science - The girls studied the brain and the nervous system. We had a really important lesson about how we learn information by making connections in our brain. The more connections that are made, the better we learn something. This really helped the girls to see why I have them do so many things with new information - listen to me read about it, read about it themselves, write/notebook about it, etc.
Spanish - We use Rosetta Stone for Spanish. The kids seem to learn it quite well, which makes me happy.
Typing - After watching The Boy hunt and peck for the past couple of years when typing a paper, I decided to get a simple typing game for the computer to help the older three learn to type. I've seen tremendous improvement in the speed of their typing. While they may not hold their fingers on the correct keys, they at least know where each letter is located.
