Week 1: Curriculum Hop
Although our year-round homeschooling selves won't be finished with the 2008-2009 school year until the end of September, I've already been making plans for this next school year.
One thing I am definitely keeping the same is our BLOCK SCHEDULING. This basically means that we are not doing every single subject every single day.
- Every day: Handwriting, Math, Spelling
- Monday/Wednesday: Language Arts, History
- Tuesday/Thursday: Science, Latin, Art, Music
While I detest assigning grade levels, for simplicity's sake we will say that Austin is going into 5th grade and Noah into 3rd grade.

Seriously? They are BOYS. They like to throw water balloons, dig holes, ride bikes (with homemade ramps), play baseball in the yard with daddy, shoot hoops, go to the driving range, play soccer, ride scooters, catch frogs, go camping, fly kites... need I say more?
