Back To School (How do you plan? When and how do you begin?)

It’s July guys, time to start all the “planning” for the upcoming school year (or not).  As you know I do not “plan”, instead I document the things we accomplish.  Sure, I have a vision and a purpose for the school year, I simply don’t “plan” out my days step by step.  Maybe that is  what works for you, for me though…it leads to tears, breakdowns, and stress.  So here’s to you!  As you plan (or don’t) for your upcoming school year.   So far I have 1 and only 1 plan, I will begin school on August 1.  We will initiate this school year by beginning with Language arts (reading, vocab, Latin) for 1 hour each day and 1 hour of math each day for the first week (broken into two 30 minute sessions).  The second week we will add Social Studies lapbooking (45 mins – 1 hour) into the mix, the third week we will add science lapbooking (45mins to 1 hour), by the 4th week we will be hopefully in full swing each day covering reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and Latin (and of course Bible, but we never take a break from those lessons).  As you can see, I prefer easing into the school year slowly.  How do you plan or begin your year?


Isaiah 54:13  All your children shall be taught by the LORD, and great shall be the peace of your children.
