Lesson Plan week of 8/28

Last week we spent quite a bit of time with Grandpa who may not be with us much longer, milking an alpaca whose cria wouldn’t,(and still won’t), nurse, and we were in a parade on Saturday.  In spite of all this, we still learned every day and reached most of our goals for the week.  Because of this, Monday will be a catchup day and hopefully this week will be calmer than last week.  Any hangovers from last week will be in red.  Click here to see last weeks plan.  As a matter of giving credit where credit is due, most of the plan I follow was put together by the fabulous women at Ableside Online.  Their site is the most comprehensive and helpful CM site that I have found.  If you are interested in implementing her ideas into your school, I suggest you start with this site.
