We have a plan! I have been working on compiling a 2011-2012 school year plan for our homeschool and I have succeeded! I am really excited to share with you what we are planning on doing this upcoming year.
Since Hannah will be 5 and Nathan is 3, we will be compiling some grade levels together to make it understandable for both age levels. Some things, such as Art, I will be doing on both levels.
Bible: Arthur Maxwell's The Bible Story, Keepers of the Faith Character Studies
English/Phonics: 100 Lessons to Read, Bob Books, ABC flashcards, Leapfrog
Health: Rod and Staff grade 2 health- simple stories illustrating good points on manners, etc
History: Rod and Staff Geography grade 2, History Stories on famous people, etc
Science: Simple science experiments (found a great website), 1st grade Abeka Science, will be reading the Homestead series and other story formatted books learning about different animals and habitats, also learning about weather.
Math: Workbooks, Abacus, learning to tell time with a clock,
Art: Abeka K3 and K4 art packs
I am really excited to begin our new school year. We'll probably start either the end of August or September 1st. Now I need to finagle our schedule so as to fit a time slot in for this great learning time!
For the rest of the summer I plan on doing Rod and Staff's Vacation Bible School program with Hannah for her age level of Kindergarten. I want to take some special time to spend with her.
We'll also do some art projects-maybe paint another canvas?? :)
Mainly we are working on character training this summer.... and of course all the time. ;)
What are your school plans for the upcoming year if you are homeschool? Would love to hear!
