So glad I decided to type this out. What a list! Luckily, I think we already have most of the required items. I hope to collect the rest during the current back-to-school sales.
I had been toying with the idea of adding additional drawing curriculum, but now that I have taken a little closer look at Atelier's lessons, I think it should be mooooorrrre than enough art for Tessa this coming year. She'll have plenty of opportunities for crafts, hands-on activities and experiments during history and science as well.
