Bring It On!! 2010-2011 School Year
Why? you ask, do I post my completed 2010 school plans? Because I am a seriously challenged schedule creator!! So, I am a bit proud of myself having finished up my final draft for the 2010 school year. Normally I just jot down on a piece of paper what I would like accomplished for the year but it ends up getting written on or lost or ate by the dog or something like that. (I don't have a dog but you get my drift) This way it is IN my computer and should be more difficult to lose. I was so proud of it I even put it on my travel drive just in case. This literally took me hours and losing it would not make me very happy. Now that I actually have a functioning and workable layout I plan on hanging onto it for years to come and only changing the titles of the resources I use.
I will be schooling 4 out of my 5 youngest together for the next year using the resources above. Of course though math, latin, grammar, and independent reading will be done individually.
My book lists for each child I keep in sheet protectors and they mark off the books as they read them. We have used it for years and it's a wonderful thing to have with many children because then you don't have to think about whether or not they've read a particular book or not. I've decided on Sonlight for my older kiddos and that's why they aren't listed on the schedule. They are pretty much on auto pilot and can use the Sonlight schedule alone.
HERE is the blog I "store" my links for online resources being used.
I choose titles for our book lists from various resources. All of the following links offer wonderful titles for literature. And best of all, nearly all of our choices we find at our public library.
