I simply had to share my excitement for next school year. American History for highschool is what I will be teaching, as well as casually guiding my two younger kids through American History literature. OH, I’m so excited about all the books we will be reading this coming year! I’ve already announced to my two sons, who do not love reading YET, that this will be a foundational year for them and their reading careers. Yes, they both rolled their eyes at the woman who gave birth to them! Sheesh.
My planning is almost done and for the first time in ten years of homeschooling, I’m branching out to try a few different curricula. Of course, I’m still using Konos for History of the World 4: American History. Nothing beats the activities in HOW! Nothing. But for the youngers, I’m trying a few more structured choices that will enable them to be a bit more independent. I’m stretching myself here, believe me. I’m a control freak, and I’m giving up some control somewhat willingly. We’ll see how this goes!
I’m so glad all of next school year is written down and organized and planned and structured and ready! Whew!
