I don't know if I've shared this before, but our favorite subject right now is History. We recently finished with the ancient Roman Empire and are onto the Byzantine. When you were in 2nd grade, did you go there? My daughter is learning about religions, art, and world events through this current curriculum. While I am still thinking about switching after this year, we will miss this subject. I'll have to make up for it somehow.
For example, Bella learned about the Hagia Sophia and the beautiful mosaics that decorate it's interior walls. So we decided to make our own mosaics after we finished this lesson. The kids loved it!
