Unit 1 Resurrection to Reformation

As this was our first time using Heart of Dakota's beautiful curriculum in several years, and my first ever teaching on my own, we took this first unit at about half speed. The unit gets going very quickly, pushing quite a bit of reading, both independent and read aloud along with several neat art elements. The below pictures show her working on the arch project with air-dry clay and the other is some of work done with her first Shakespeare reading. This takes me to another element that I am sure we will love from the curriculum, The exposure to Shakespeare for the first time is really neat. In this unit, she read the first half of The Tempest which she enjoyed and is looking forward to the next reading.

When I asked her what her favorite part of the first unit was, she said that she really enjoyed the Looking at Pictures element that we did on the first day and the making of the arch.

In addition to the main Heart of Dakota curriculum, we substituted the following for Math, English and Writing. We are using Life of Fred for Peanut's math, BJU English for her grammar and English and we started using Writing & Rhetoric for her writing program.
