Outline of American Literature- an online text

Here is an online free book we may explore over the summer. Its called Outline of American Literature.

It starts at Early American and the Colonial Period through Contemporary American Literature.

I thought this might be very interesting to read as our teen begins to dive deeper into literature and literary analysis.  A real history lover, I think he will be able to appreciate this and may be great for some practice essays as well.

Cells lapbook - next section added

In trying to get a few things out of the way for our week back to school I had created the next section for our lapbook on cells. We are also making our own folds for our lapbook as well as we read material. For example, when reading about the two kinds of microscopes we decided to make a side by side match book fold with a venn diagram on the front explaining the differences and similarities for them. 

These pages I have created are for more vocabulary words and then also different kinds of cells "folds".

As we finish up this lapbook I will be posting pictures and these pages will be found in the freebies section.

Changing Plans and New Notebooking Pages

We just decided this morning, after looking over our schedule for Holy Week that it is probably best to take the week off. We were planning on taking next week off ( we usually do for a Spring break so I can begin some Spring cleaning and get their papers in some sort of outline for the portfolios for the following month but I think this will work out better for us this year since our week became increasingly busy with things going on.)

I also had a chance to start some Notebooking Pages adapted from my teens book he is reading "A Patriots History of the United States". I have added these to my Homeschool Launch page and also the freebies page.
