Learning Resources for New Year’s


It’s been a wonderful holiday break from homeschooling for us, but it’s time to get back into the swing of lessons and learning.   New Year’s celebrations will be our last lesson focus of 2014 as well as our first lesson focus of 2015.  Below are the online resources we’ll be using for our study.
