School Time ~ Planners

We are starting our third week of school this week. It has been going great and I am glad I found some planning tips to make our day go more smoothly.

The first planning tip that I have found useful is writing my boys assignments into a spiral notebook each week. I write down their daily assignment and they check it off. It helps keep us both accountable. You can learn more here.

For my oldest daughter, pictured above, I use the My Student Logbook that I reviewed last year. I loved it so much that I had to order one again this year. She loves to check off her assignments each day.

I am using Alpha Omega Horizons Preschool with my 4 year old and she is just loving it. She loves to cut and glue. She just really loves to learn. I don't have a planner for her, yet. But as she gets older, I will most likely stick with My Student Logbook during the elementary years and move to the spiral notebook when they get into middle school because right now it is what works for us. But, that could change. I will just go year by year.


Final Curriculum Choices 2015-2016

Wow, I can't believe our summer break is over. We start our new school year today. It took me a while to finally decide our curriculum this year.

Up first, my 8th grader. He is taking a few high school credit classes this year. He will be studying the following:

~ Abeka Algebra I (High school course)
~ Visual Latin (High school course)
~ Apologia Biology (High school course)
~ Fix It Grammar: Book 3
~ Abeka Literature
~ Abeka US History
~ Abeka Spelling
~ Jump In Writing

Next, for my 7th grader, I chose the following:

~ Saxon Algebra 1/2
~ Abeka World History
~ Fix It Grammar: Book 3
~ Abeka Literature
~ Abeka Spelling
~ Apologia General Science
~ Jump In Writing

For my 5th grader I chose:

~ CTC Math
~ Abeka World History
~ Fix It Grammar: Book 1
~ Apologia Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology
~ A Reason for Handwriting
~ Abeka Reading
~ Home Spelling Words

My 4 year old is using Alpha Omega Horizons curriculum for preschool. She will be done in December and move on to Abeka K5 in January. We bagan the Horizons curriculum in the spring and have worked through the summer 3-4 days a week on it.
