Still planning.....

Okay, actually, I kinda just started.  These two classes are pretty intense and I have a lot of work to do for them.  I'm getting there though, only four weeks left, yikes!!  I'd better get started on my paper!

I set up my planning notebook yesterday and put in all the dividers.  I have a tab for each subject for each child.  I printed out the planning sheets for each subject.  Some subjects will be done two days a week, others will be done three, and math and reading will be done five days a week.

I pulled out TL's Tell Me More Spanish program.  It looks great!!  The introduction part will probably take up almost half the year itself.  Each lesson has about 12-16 activities.  Its pretty  nice.  I can't wait to get started on that!

I finally figured out exactly what books he'll be reading this year.

Teaching the Classics seminar
The Hobbit
Taming the Shrew
Midsummer Night's Dream dvd version (which we will watch and study Shakespeare then read Taming the Shrew)
Lord of the FLies
Animal Farm
To Kill a Mockingbird
Christmas Carol
Mysterious Island
Short stories to include Edgar Allan Poe
Poetry unit

The girls will be reading:

The Boxcar Children
Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry
Pippi Longstocking
Best Christmas Pageant Ever
Charlotte's Web
Long Winter

Next week I'll be placing my first order for curriculum.  I love buying books!!  And I can't wait for all the sales on paper, pencils, erasers, etc........does anyone else like all those sales?

  1. I love the lists of books. My son read all of those in high school. Just don't make the mistake I did of being sleep deprived and ordering the dvd animal house instead of animal farm! LOL! That was a shocker.
