2009-2010 School Year Plans

We have already officially started our new school year because we school through the summer. Our school year runs in quarters: June- August; September- November; December- February; March-May.

Our summer schedule is usually pretty relaxed. We usually do a unit study and I usually get the older children summer bridge books to help them practice basic skills.

So for 2009-2010, we have done a South Carolina state study for our unit. We are doing a music theory unit using All-In-One piano lessons. Kathryne is completing a 4th/5th grade summer bridge book, and Charles is completing a 3rd/4th grade summer bridge book. The little girls have been completing some worksheets I've gotten off the internet, and Ashlyne is completing a basic handwriting book from the dollar store. I also, after reading A Thomas Jefferson Education, bought the Core Knowledge Series, and I am using the preschool book to do readings with Ashlyne and Rachel.

Here is what I have planned for the fall quarter:

Over the next few posts, I am going to publish a series about getting started homeschooling. I am doing this on behalf of some friends I have in real life who are beginning homeschooling this year. I hope this will be a helpful resource for them and for anyone who is reading. If you are reading these posts and have questions about homeschooling, please don't hesitate to leave those in my comments section.
