about the new homeschool year! I am still pondering a few curriculum choices for religion and phonics, but have decided that for our overall theme this year we're going to use the Alphabet Path from Serendipity.
I read the Shower of Roses blog today and oh how absolutely adorable! Can't you see my girls doing this together? I think I'm going to follow her lead, tweak it a bit for my own family and the books we already have, but what a great start! It's kind of like a Five in a Row program, but with the alphabet as our guide.
I've been reminded by two of my closest friends over the past week that I need to SLOW down. My expectations are set high, after working at a Catholic school where the children were pushed to be a grade ahead in most subjects.
So now it's time to go back, review, and have fun. My goal for this year is for the girls to ENJOY learning. This week is planning week; I'm hoping to make rough plans lasting until Christmas, but we'll see how things go.
We'll be praying for all our friends starting their new school year, please pray for us too!
