Minor Plans for Homeschooling

I have been spending a lot of time this summer with my unschooling friends. This has had the effect of helping me feel satisfied about my children instead of hopeless for the coming year.

I still have a plan though ;-)

I am planing on using a little bit of a lot of different things this year. Here is a list of them.

Life of Fred Elementary Series

Life of Fred is just awesome. I don't know any other way I could describe it. It is a story book set with a few questions at the end of each chapter to help the child work through and remember the lesson.

SOS Math for practice on the computer.

Cantering the Country (Unit study using the United States)
It Happened in America - True Stories from the 50 States
Travel the Great States - an Activity book

You can probably tell from the above that I plan on focusing on US history and Geography this year.

English will consist of working in the book Voyages in English #2 and #5.

We will try to get more Museum time in as well as parks and meeting up with friends.

In September we will be at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine during Home School week. If you see me come and talk to me :-)
