HOMESCHOOLING TO-DO:As to-do lists always do, this one grew to about three times this size, as I broke down general items into more specific items and added those on there, too.
-to BUY: nature notebooks, slate/chalk for cursive practice, ABC letters for the boys?
-copywork selections (Bible, poetry, literature, hymns? history?)
-theme verse/passage memory cards
-select picture study artists/paintings
-new memory verses
-prepare timeline cards
-pairing-up plan for older kids/little girls?
-gratitude/thankfulness family plan: each mealtime? around the table, one thing? three?
-nature study ideas?
-daily school checklist/schedule
-Isaias-K work? (*continue Super Star speech)
-Isaac- 1st grade work?
-math lesson plan (daily)
-english lesson plan (2x/week)
I've had snippets of time with which to plan for this coming year, and Mark is taking a day off this week for me to finish up. Finishing up in one day would be a miracle, since the big ones, and the not-so-fun ones, in my opinion (Math lesson plan and English lesson plan) are still sitting on that list. But that's okay! I'll get done what I am able to get done and we'll roll with it. :) I imagine we're going to have several kinks to work out of my "schedule" in the first couple of weeks (months!) anyway, with two very busy toddlers in the mix!
We start school next week and I'm going to kick off September by filling you in on all the new things we're doing, so stay tuned.
