Our Curriculum Choices for 2010

My favorite time of year is just about here.
We have had an enjoyable summer. The warm sun
on our faces and sitting by the sea. Yet I know it
is almost over and we will get to embark on a new school
year. I am excited to try my hand again in Teaching my
children at home. As I look to this year I know that it
won't be easy. That all of my plans may not go as I thought
they would. I learned that last year when I had to
rush daddy to the hospital and we have been struggling
with new things since. I can feel a lot of changes in the
air for our family. I can feel God working for us. I know
he is there now and before when I didn't feel him. I
also know that a toddler, preschooler,elementary student
and middle school er may not always follow my plans.
With that I give you ideals for the fall.

Let's start with my little Sweet Pea. She
is beginning to take a few steps now. She has
been standing for sometime but is timid about
taking off. I imagine that will happen before
I know it and will be running around after her.
Sweet Pea will be 1 on Aug. 19Th and will
participate in Carissa's TOT School. My little
one has come to a point where she is very curious
and I believe she is ready to explore her environment
in some fun play.

Tot School

My little man Spirit is 4 years old to start the year.
He will be working at a Pre-k level. He knows most
of his letter and letter sounds but we will continue
to work on making those solid. With that we will be
using these books ...(who knows what else
we will get into.)

-Before 5 in a Row (continued)

Superboy is 10 years old and will continue in the
4Th grade for the fall. He is a struggling reader and
writer. We will focus on those two things. He was tested
and is on the boarder line for being diagnosed with dysgraphia
He loves Art so we will explore that farther and include it with
writing skills.
