Today is our first day of school for 2011-2012! I've been working on getting everything set up for the year during the last few weeks. Our "workbaskets" (my version of workboxes) are set up. I hope to do a post on these in the future. I actually did a video to explain what I'm doing, but it was too big for Blogger to accept :(
To start off this year, Lass will be finishing up My Father's World First Grade. At the same time, we'll be easing into Ambleside Online. I am already excited about AO! Hopefully, Lass will like it too. We kind of hit a rough patch this weekend when she informed me that she wasn't going to do school, but we have worked it out, I think. Later on in the year, we will be starting a different math programme. I'm looking at Singapore Math, Miquon Math, and Math-U-See. There are so many great products out there for every subject that it is hard to make a decision! We will also be starting French lessons. This subject will be a little different as I will also be teaching my friend Laura's son. Our first lesson will be "Bonjour! Je m'appelle ..." I am also going to attempt to teach Lassie to knit - could be interesting.
Laddie will be doing therapy based activities mostly - colouring/drawing, Playdough, scissoring activities, puzzles, etc. I have a few things lined up, but I'm waiting to see how things go before I make any solid plans for him.
So, that's the very basic outline for our year. Thanks for visiting!
