Beyond Little Hearts for His Glory:
Riley and I are laughing our way through Mr. Popper's Penguins, and also laughing our way through McBroom's Wonderful 1 Acre Farm for DITHOR. We just started DITHOR, and he is doing beautifully! He even wants to do the writing part of it, though I am approaching this more low key because he's young. I let him do the last DITHOR project with Wyatt, even though Riley hadn't done the previous part of the unit - they wanted to do it together, and they picked the group project and did well with it. I started off with them together doing DITHOR, but it was adding time to the day, so I went back to my old schedule and separated them for DITHOR for right now. Riley needs a lot of help right now, and Wyatt doesn't - so it's been better this way. Plus, since Riley is younger, I want him reading every day but not necessarily doing the Student Book daily. It's working well. For next year, I'll plan for them to be together, when Emmett is older and can do more on his own, and when Riley is truly old enough to fully do DITHOR.
Riley continues to LOVE the activities and hands-on parts of Beyond. Here he is as Daniel Boone forging through the trees to make the Wilderness Trail (he had some help):
His other favorite project was making the Lord's Army Armor for his stuffed animal:
Before that, he loved making the tissue flower that the little girl wanted to wear to welcome George Washington as President:
It's hard to believe we are in Unit 28 of Beyond now - time does fly when we're having fun!
