  • Science Conservation, Robotics & Technology 

Extra Stuff:

  • Timeline (homemade with figures from Sonlight Core G and H)
  • World History 1 Lap Book ( Sonlight Core G)
  • Read Alouds from Sonlight Level G and H

You can see just about everything on one page: here. You’ll support this blog with a few cents that I’ll earn on commission from Amazon.

One thing that I am doing this year is a completely planned 14 week Summer School. We start on Monday and we’ll be finishing up Saxon 76, and our Science program. We’ll also be studying the States and Capitals, The Hobbit, Grammar, and I picked up the program Myself and Others from Memoria Press in order to study a bit of Manners, Safety, and Nutrition.

I’ll update a bit on Instagram using the Story function if you’d like to follow along.

JEN NAUGHTON and her husband share their 1930's era Chicago home with four sons and a daughter. A voracious reader, Jen reviews books before their release for dozens of publishers on her page: Windy City Reader. Jen also blogs (on WordPress!) about classical, mostly secular, home education at Good Enough Homeschool. In 2020 she will begin a new adventure teaching and traveling with her youngest son in their camper van. Follow their antics at Windy City Rover. You can find Jen misbehaving on social media on Twitter: @jennynau10 and Instagram: @windycityrover
