After six days of
Our 2012-2013 curricula:
Our 2012-2013 curricula choices can be found here. (Side note: pinterest seriously keeps my brain organized.) My little ones are uber excited about their schoolwork for this upcoming year. I have to keep reminding them that we are off for May, and to wait a couple more weeks.
I am really excited about a couple of new curricula this year. The first is A Reason For Handwriting. I bought this for all three of my current homeschoolers. Here is a sample pages from it:
I love how A Reason for Handwriting contains so many great Scriptures for children to copy, and then even discussion questions to make sure that they understand the Biblical application.
There are so many fun learning activities in the notebooking journal. I love the coloring pages with Scripture. I pray that all of these materials will be a helpful tools in pointing my children towards God.
The Desktop Apprentice Organizer
I am hoping to be able to finish all of my homeschool planning within these last two weeks before school starts. I always tend to get a little nervous at the prospect of a new school year. It seems like whenever we have any time off, I worry about getting it all done. (From daily chores, to cooking, to cleaning, to taking care of the littles, etc.) One article that really encouraged me was from HodgePodge: How to Fit in All the Extras. She wrote a brillant post about just doing the 3 R's in the morning, and then fitting in all the extras, like math and history, one per day, in the afternoon.It was such a simple idea, yet so freeing. Another concept I want to be more diligent in implementing, this school year, is Afternoon Quiet Time. My two-year old generally takes an afternoon nap, but I need to make sure that all of my children have a daily quiet time.
