Lets keep it real - we've played a lot this week :-) Just played . We are still enjoying some really nice days - so much better than last summer - so I am not about to stop the play. Plus, I'll be honest, I'm enjoying not planning and not overseeing planned activities. We all play together some times and some times I'm able to get some extra things done around the house. I'm sure as the summer heats up, I will need to help the kids accomplish some things so that they don't get on each others nerves but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.
Anyway . .. here is our plan for the fall.
The main curriculum that I will be using for Josh comes from Confessions of a Homeschooler and is her K-4 program
The main curriculum that I will be using for Nate this year also comes from Confessions of a Homeschooler and is a great preschool program.
I like to add a Bible Supplement to our day because it is so important for kids to be grounded in the Bible. I did a lot of research and found this curriculum from Positive Action that I really impressed me.
I also plan to start Handwriting with Josh using curriculum found at A Reason For.
This last item is a bonus item - it is PE curriculum from Family Time Fitness and is a great way to do PE when you don't have a clue.
My next step is to start working on our schedule. I'm thinking about doing a 6 week on/1 week off rotation which would open it up for us to have a longer break in December and finish up our year mid-May. Josh's curriculum begins with a lot of review so starting in Mid-July wouldn't be a big issue and we would only do his K-4 curriculum for a little bit each day. I plan on using time next week to lay out the plan, starting printing the first 6 weeks of lessons and also get the other stuff ordered so I'm ready to go :-)
