Emily, here below, is concentrating on her schoolwork. She's my last child to teach to read, and she's doing very well with it. It's bittersweet in a way. It seems like I have home schooled forever and forever and that the days of homeschooling will never end. Now here is Em, reading, and I will never have to teach phonics to another child of mine. Yea, hooray! And yet, it makes me feel a bit sad. Okay, just a bit.....I still have many years of homeschooling ahead of us. After all, Emily is only six.

Our studies on World War I are coming to a close this week or next. Last week we read about the United States joining the Allies in 1917 for the final year of the war. Jacob's reading assignments focused on the home front, on the war effort in the States, the changes war brought, and on propaganda and recruiting posters. I gave him the assignment to come up with a motto and make up his own recruiting poster.
Below: Jacob's notebooking pages of recruiting/propaganda posters and his own poster.
