Last year was the first year I had ever used Apologia curriculum.
I picked Flying Creatures of the 5th Day because my son loves bats and raptors. Who knew by the end of the year we’d all end up becoming bird lovers!
At first I was surprised how much reading was required of me. I wasn’t thrilled with that … at all! I was hoping as our homeschool years progressed the boy would have more work alone curriculum. However - I have grown to love the side-by-side quality time.
The work is thorough and continually pointing back to the Creator – Jeannie Fulbright has done an amazing job with this curriculum! We all learned so much about birds and insects! We also incorporated a few field trips to local zoos and bird rescue centers – which worked amazing well alongside the notebook.
Who knows how long we’ll live in Orlando, but if we’re here we might as well get use of the biggest “aquarium” in town! We’re all really looking forward to what we’re going to learn this year with Apologia!! (we’ve already taken the book to the beach!!)
I highly recommend Apologia science to homeschool families! Even though the reading might seem intimidating (because it does require time) ~ it fills up those “quality time” love language hearts and builds lifelong memories.
You can follow Apologia on Facebook — they also host great parties there!
FUN NEWS – Apologia contacted me and wants to give one of my readers Swimming Creatures (text & notebook – choice of regular notebook or junior notebook) !!
