We’ve finished our study of North America. We’ll start South America this week. Weeks five and six have been filled with unschooling (documentaries, games, building things, learning about the fish and snails we have, and so on). We’ve read some American history books. We also did the reading assignments and coloring page to finish up our North America study.

Boobear seems to really have enjoyed Build Your Library’s Kindergarten program so far. I also like it, though at times I am finding that I’m beefing it up or simply not even looking at the schedules. It’s still a good curriculum, and certainly a great secular one!

Boobear’s favorite things so far:

  • Recipes
  • Folklore
  • Animal Poetry
  • Mapwork (basically, anything that means he gets to look at maps, globes, or pull out a compass)
  • Seeing how other children around the world live
  • Anything that has anything to do with history

He has also made some great advances in math (place value anyone? Even if the way I showed him made him point out my place tends to be by the coffee pot!) and is proving to be surprisingly good at word problems so far, despite his audio processing and language difficulties.

Handwriting isn’t quite as spidery, which is good, and he’s coming along in reading. I’m starting to find little words written on the shower wall with bath crayons and he’s pretending to write stories.

It’s been a good first unit so far. South America should prove quite interesting.

Added North America to the Passport


Coloring Page for North America – that prompted Boobear to try to plan a roadtrip to see everything.
