  • Horizons K (finish) and then begin Horizons 1 math

  • Reading Made Easy phonics lessons

  • Italic Handwriting


3 yo M -- preschool (taught naturally through stories, play, daily conversations):

  • story time (listening in on Tapestry of Grace and other things)

  • counting

  • potty training

  • ABCs and letter sounds

  • begin handwriting

  • learn to pick up after himself


1 yo L -- toddler:


  • learn not to tear books

  • learn not to empty shelves

  • learn to pick up

  • learn to obey

  • learn to talk (she is saying words, and mimicking, but not yet using sentences -- it will come)

  • learn many new things as she explores the world around her



For all children:

  • review The 21 Rules of This House and the Bible verses I assigned to each rule

  • use For Instructions In Righteousness for Bible study

  • Nature Study

  • learn new life skills

  • develop diligence, team work,  and cheerfulness

  • learn to love each other better, forgive freely, and treat each other kindly

  • learn self-control



That's the plan for the upcoming school year.   Some of these things will be daily assignments, and others only weekly assignments.  I'm still trying to figure out that balance. 

Of course, God may have different plans for our family, and He may send some curve-balls that make us change our plans.   Or perhaps we'll find that part of this plan just isn't going to work for us; perhaps we'll decide Easy Grammar isn't a good fit for us after all.  That's part of the adventure of homeschooling ... every year is full of surprises.

Blessings,
April

  1. It looks like a fun filled schedule. I love how we can tailor the subjects and studies to fit the individual child, since each is so different. Thanks for sharing.
