When I was SO ORGANIZED I even had a whole year of lessons planned out and written down for the girls? Well. You knew that wouldn't last right? haha
This year - NUTT'N
I do have loose plan in my head of how I want our days to roll, though. That has GOT to count for something. All you OCD, organized-to-a-TEE, crazy people are just gonna have to ignore me!!
I think Kela and Cassie are gonna start with Chemistry. Which is peachy keen for me. Get the hard stuff out of the way up front. :-p Then they'll go on to Algebra prolly. We will do English (grammar and reading) every day. And Faith will be doing her Math every day, and hand writing, which she just adores. We will most likely do another unit study type of thing for history again. Then we'll get Latin squeezed in there some time or other! LOL
They are also going to be writing things in their journals this year that we will be transferring to a BLOG for them! Yes! Isn't that a rockin' idea?! My friend Michelle, who graded their portfolios, suggested it. She had needed lists of the books they've read, which of course I DON'T HAVE! Duh. You try to keep up with all that Cassie alone reads! LOL And seriously, Faith and Kela are nearly as bad!
I thought the blogs for the kids was an awesome idea. They can write their book reports on there, they can keep their book lists on there, they can do other writing assignments for other subjects on there too! We will be keeping them at least semi-private though. Kela is 13, and Cass is only 11, and Faithy is only 8! But they will feel very cool to have their own blog, I think!
Other than that, we will just be doing regular old book work :)
They are NOT excited to start. Well, Cassie is and Faith sort of is. Kela is saying over and over that she doesn't want to do school. LOL
I am going to let Raechel do more school this year. Last year she sat and colored and traced letters while the girls did school. She can write her name now, so I will prolly give her all kinds of stuff to write this year ;)
