Read alouds:

We will do some together and some separately. I have planned Witch at Blackbird Pond and The Christmas Carol as together for right now. I will read the Betsy books and Betsy-Tacy books to the girls. TL and I will work on The Hobbit and The Wind of the Willows.


  1. Isn't nice to have the year planned out. It sounds like your next two college classes will be nice. I hope you enjoy them.

  2. I love how organized you are per day. My excuse right now is that mine are still very young so we kind of go with the daily flow but I do have our year planned out :) My oldest is only in 1st grade this year but I have learned to plan early!! We have already started but just prior to that I was left scrambing to get stuff together.
