This is a rough draft as I begin ordering next year’s plan based off of this year’s ending point.

Slowly taking shape…
Anybody else find that preparation is one of their favorite parts? First, I decide which subjects. Then, which curriculum. Then… lots of review to make sure I haven’t missed anything or made it too heavy. Then making a chart for keeping track fo the schoolwork done as the year progresses. Then prepping those things that I’m setting up myself. Then shopping! Then setting it up on the shelf. Oh, I do love planning and preparing. Way more fun than the implementation for me. 😀

Guiding thoughts: we’ve been strong on general education, reading, easy writing, science and arts. We have been really light on history and social studies and formal writing curriculum. Next year, therefore, I’m putting my focus on history and writing this year. I did try a history curriculum last year, but it was unsuccessful.
