I was proud of the children as they worked very hard, up until the very last day before Christmas vacation. Beginning in the new year, we will continue our focus on the Earth, moon, and sun, Chapter Eleven in the text. We have been doing the lessons out of order, and we will begin 2019 on lessons four and six. The Western Hemisphere is looking forward to a total lunar eclipse on January 20-21. We will start our chapter project, “Tracking the Moon,” on January 7, our first day back to class, which also coincides with the January new moon. Although the eclipse should be totally visible, it will be a late night. Luckily, the 21st is a day off of school. The children will be receiving more info, and I’m sure the news reports will do a good coverage, as we get closer. Thank you, as always, for your support throughout the school year. Please always feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or ideas!
