In fact, Haywood is pretty obsessed with mountains and we try to learn more and more about them, during our time as a homeschool family. One of the wonderful benefits, the student gets to drive the course material.
In this case, we took a mountain theme and added it to a subject that Haywood likes on some days and doesn't on others - language arts. In an attempt to work on adjectives, I linked this to his favorite topic and - it worked. Now, we will keep adding to this class tool.
