This is a post moved over from my homeschool blogger that I am going to delete as I try and consolidate in one place.
I obviously haven’t checked this blog in forever – but alas I finally am doing planning for this year. Thought I would actually post here as it is school related.
I guess my biggest goal is that we get time in the Word daily. Too many times I’m worried about getting all the school done that I cut this short or skip it altogether if we oversleep, etc. This is the most important part of my day.
We’ll also be studying some missionaries, their time, geography and calling. We’re using the file folders from Hands of a Child and YWAM Missionary stories.
We’re doing some Sonlight, some Smarr Literature (on your own independent Senior in highschool).
We’re doing Teaching Textbooks *yeah!* and Horizon Math for the younger ones.
We’re using Christian Kids Explore Physics and Abeka highschool science for the older ones – in a coop setting.
I have 2 doing an Understanding the Times class outside of the home.
What are we not doing – Abeka Math for the younger kids – not enough instruction without doing the sit down school stuff. We aren’t using Tapestry of Grace anymore, less Classical in our bent. OH!!! we aren’t doing Saxon math for the bigs OR Spelling Power.Just things that haven’t worked out so well for us.
I have some children who just get it, school comes easily to them. I have some children who do to brain injury or learning disability will not get it. And I have some who are just the middle ofthe road. I’m praying God will BLESS this school year and our efforts to keep HIM First and look for ways to Honor Him. I have given my plans to Him for this year and this is where we are. I am such a planner type and want to have all my stuff ordered and here by now so what a stretch for me.
Peace and Blessings,
