I thought I should start getting some new blogs up in the mean time. After all... it has been a YEAR! I can't figure out where the time went and how I went that long without blogging! I typed up many rough drafts on my desktop but never transferred them here. I may see if I can back date and still upload them. I sure hope this school year doesn't fly like that! I will have to see about putting Flickr within my website and upload all the pictures we took as we worked this past year!
This week I am working hard on rounding up curriculum, laying out lesson plans, and organizing all the rest!
Yesterday was spent reviewing our new Language Arts curriculum, which I just LOVE and am looking forward to using. I haven't used a full curriculum before. I think this one will help... a lot... in the areas we need it to :-) I will have to type more on this later. For now I will share that we are using the red, yellow, and green books and I am probably more excited than the kids to get crackin' on it all!
I still don't have a curriculum for math... just using a bunch of good loose ends I have. That has been my focus today. Sort through all my math pieces and put together a comprehensive curriculum for each child. I'm about half done... the biggest half behind me (Ok, that makes NO mathematical sense... halves are equal!)
Assuming I accomplish what I need to tonight with my math
One last thing... a little treasure for YOU: Family Fun. I have received the magazine for years but recently a friend turned me onto their website and signing up for various newsletters. I singed up for crafts, recipes, and printables and right now, they have a lot of fun and neat stuff. I especially liked the weekly planner pages... too cute for words! Check it out!
Happy schooling :-)
