The Crafter's Curriculum

It's our first day of the 2010-2011 school year at Bradford Academy.  The Crafter is now a sixth grader.  Where does the time go?  It seems like yesterday she was throwing down her picture books in frustration because she didn't know the words.  Today she can whip through a 300+ page novel in a day--if she is interested.  Otherwise, it can take her an hour to read a 10 page chapter in a biography.

Here she is in the kitchen at Horne Creek Farm.  She's a junior volunteer this year.

So, without further ado, here's the Crafter's lineup of subjects and curricula.  Of course, we won't do every subject everyday, and I am still trying to wrap my brain around  Tapestry of Grace.

  1. That is so neat that your dd volunteers at Horne Creek! What a fun place. We visited several years ago when we were doing an intense 4 year study of NC History. :-)
