Week of 8/21

Following is our schedule that we will be using over the next week.  Our lives are so hectic that I have to have built in flexibility in the schedule.  I have a basic schedule, but can easily rearrange subjects throughout the day/week.  I create a weekly list that I can check off at the end of each day to make sure I’m getting everything in for that week.  I follow Spell to Write and Read for phonics, MEP for math, Your Story Hour for Bible, and AO for everything else.  I have a host of other sites I frequent to enhance all of the basics and I will include them in the post as necessary.

For Everyone:

Bible

  • YSH lesson 4 (I stretch this over a three day period)
  • Daniel and the Lions Den (spend two days)
  • Memory verse Luke 2:52 (practice daily and then weekly once it is mastered)
  • Hymns by Fanny Crosby (we sing 3 every morning and I try to have a theme)
