Well, it is that time of year again! The summer is almost over and a new school year is right around the corner! Where oh where did the summer go?!?! I can hardly believe that I will have a 3rd grader, two 1st graders, and two preschoolers! Man oh man! With that said, here are our 2011-2012 curriculum plans…
Math: Singapore Math 3A (will finish up 2B first)
Science: My Father’s World ECC
Arts & Crafts: My Father’s World ECC
Music: My Father’s World ECC
Typing: Typing Instructor
Life Skills: Keepers at Home
Writing: Cursive First
Math: Singapore Math 1A & 1B
Science: My Father’s World 1st Grade
Arts & Crafts: My Father’s World 1st Grade
Music: My Father’s World 1st Grade
Life Skills: Little Contenders for the Faith (will be done with the preschoolers as well)
I really feel like I have not made “teaching” the little guys as much of a priority as I should have. Rather than providing intentional learning opportunities, I just found activities to “occupy” them so that I could work with the older kids. However, that is all about to change…once I decide what I am going to use with them! That is part of my Mission of the Month…so that it WILL get done!
Final Thoughts: I am excited about this year. I have been working hard…very hard…at planning out our ENTIRE school year! I am hoping to avoid the Sunday night panic, when I realize that I am not ready for the upcoming school week. So, having most of the lesson plans already done has already provided me a HUGE sense of relief and accomplishment! I am sure that I will have to make adjustments as we go along, but the base of it is all planned out! I used my new editable pdf planner for my daughter’s lesson plans! I am so thrilled b/c I will be able to use those very same lesson plans for the rest of my kids when they reach 3rd grade! Plus, I will only have to edit it to create lesson plans for all subsequent school years! Yay!!!
With that said, those are our 2011-2012 Curriculum Plans. I am sure I have forgotten something, but this IS already enough…right?!?!?! Is it REALLY that time of the year?
