2010-2011 Curriculum and Planning Complete

I am thrilled to announce that, for the most part, I have finished planning our 2010-2011 school year.  Of course, planning has little to do with what actually happens.  I know that all my best plans may go horribly astray when we actually get started with school.  For now, I'll just enjoy my perfectly planned year and delude myself with the notion that all will go according to plan.

We will all be participating in our Community Bible Study program this year.  The topic is The Acts.  It's nice that the bible study will go along with our history to some degree.  That worked so well for us last year.  The children also plan to participate in the homeschool choir and drama group.  Everyone enjoyed that last year and this year we are going to try to do a production of The Sound of Music.

K13 is taking three classes at the local high school this year:  Algebra, French I and Band.   At home she'll be taking English 9, Medieval Literature, Medieval History, Physical Science and Latin.

H11, S8 and M5 will be taking all their classes at home with the exception of private music lessons.  We are following The Well Trained Mind recommendations.  The style and goals are really in line with what we want for our children and our homeschool.  If you want to see the details you can find them listed in the sidebar under Curriculum 2010-2011.

My challenge over the next few weeks will be to find the literature I need for K13 and explore what is available through our local library systems pertaining to the Middle Ages and our physical science topics.  I'm thrilled to have so much done and a month of summer left.

  1. I really, really like the way you have laid things out both in the post and on the right-hand side of the blog. I need to either do something like this or just make a separate blog for my homeschooling thoughts. I'm too random for my own good!
