Curriculum 2014-2015

Untitled

 

Last school year was NOTHING like what I had planned. Let me repeat NOTHING!!!!!!!!!N O T H I N G. So plans become nothing short of plans. What I intend to do. I hold them somewhat loosely 🙂 Some of the extras that I had planned from last year, went out the window about the same time my husband’s appendix decided to burst into bits. Then when we moved to Missouri at Christmas time, we went even further down to the essentials! So, if some things look like you’ve seen them before, you have!

BREAKFAST! Each week the older two will take turns having a breakfast date with me and my husband. Mom/daughter one week and Father/son the next. We have a couple of parent/teen devotionals picked out. These will be a time to get away from the noise and happy chaos and just spend one on one time with these TWO teens of mine.

HOLIDAYS! My bloggy friend, Megan, does the BEST thing and it is a perfect opener for our school day. Did you know that there is about a jillion holidays? National Hot Dog Day? How about National Hot Cross Buns Day? We are going to find them and celebrate them! We started last year and it was SO fun. My favorite was celebrating the birthday of the frozen tv dinner. I fed my kids a chicken fried tv dinner at 8:30 am. It was glorious.

    Exciting to read–I love the planning phase, even if it all goes awry. 🙂

    Please erase this post and you can repost it when I’m done planning. You’re making me more anxious. I have nothing done or ready. NOTHING. Well, I guess my lesson planner is done now so that’s one thing. Maybe I can start filling it with plans? Maybe? Help. SOS.

    Hellooooooo Friend! I have missed you!!
    I’m with Alicia, I’ve only started preparing for history and that’s mainly because I am teaching at our co-op this year. But I’m getting the itch to start planning everything else. Thanks for sharing your fun choices and motivating this momma!
