In our break this week I have been a busy bee, trying to prepare lessons for the next 12 weeks so that I can focus on the principles and not spend all my time preparing on the weekends. You may know that we educate year-round, with a month off in April, August and December. This works very well for us.
So my plans are in overdrive. With God’s grace I was already able to plan for things that are sort of easy to plan–math (Ray’s), science (Dr. Hooker), art and English (McGuffey). Because I follow the recommendations for these subjects, that was not complicated. I find the principle and go from there.
History/geography and literature will be combined this quarter, with a majority of the study on Benjamin West and His Cat Grimalkin. I love literature studies and know that this will be a lot of fun. However I must do a lot more preparation for this, so the majority of my remaining time will be on this.
Do you wonder where my Bible plans are? Well, like Miiko, I use that as my own spiritual study, so I do that as we go. It is so enjoyable and rewarding. Spanish always seems to be the subject that gets left behind, so I’m not sure if we will work that in or not.
As I always do, I’ll share what resources I’m using and what I discover along the way. And I’m planning on sharing an interesting post on food very soon, so stay tuned for that. Oh, and if you are a member of the bibleprinciples group then watch your inbox for a post on an exciting study coming up in May that Lisa H. and I are working on. Good stuff!
