|Our co-op at St Marguerite's|
She still wanted time however to write her book and keep Lucky Tails running smoothly.
Tristan wasn't quite as enthusiastic about joining the co-op. He would rather stay home and play Minecraft!! however he has seen the benefit of participating and feels his skills have improved a lot, especially his writing and his ability to work independently.
In the honors program Claire does AP Biology, Biology labs, World Literature, World History, Algebra 1 and dance. (She also does Adobe Photoshop at the Potter School online, French and a ton of theatre arts classes.)
In prep Tristan studies Modern Literature, Modern History, Architecture, Science Club, Critical Thinking, Language Arts and private Math tutoring. (At home he does Science, French, Destination Imagination, Theatre Arts and dance)
Now heading into spring I have to say that this co-op has been a good match for our family. Claire has found the work challenging, yet invigorating at times...a little dry at other times. But on the whole she feels that the co-op is preparing her well for college and feels confident that she is on a good track for her. Tristan said that he would give me another year... lol. He is not 100% in. So I am enjoying fun activities with him on days he is not at Phoenix. I like the idea of a hybrid homeschool model: academic/project based homeschool.
