Sounds like a great plan for the year! I have a 5th and 7th grader, too. (Sort of. You know how it is.)

Thanks for the link to Poetry Outloud. I had not heard of it before, and my daughter would absolutely love this.

My kiddos have expressed interest in Latin, but I don't know how we could squeeze it into our already-packed days. If they want to try it, we'll find a way, I guess!

Have a wonderful year learning with your kids!
