Changes for the 2010-2011 School Year

I have decided to start early on our next school year!  I have gotten  most of the curriculum or at least know what I want.  We will be educating a Ninth grader (yikes!!), Seventh Grader, Fourth Grader, Second Grader and off and on a Preschooler.  We will be utilizing the WorkBoxes this year in different versions: The drawers for Caroline, Jack and Evan and the file folders for Sam and Tyler.  I am looking forward to having a plan every day. 

I think we are going to start this through the summer.  They need to work on something during the summer or their brains turn to muss!  Our summer work will be:  They won't be working all day, but hoping they can get something done everyday and reading EVERY day.

Tyler-working on Algrea-through worksheets, a unit study of his choice and reading at least three different books.
Sam-math (7th grade), a unit study of her choice and reading at least three different books.
Caroline-English;  fun math-money, clocks, measure; her state notebook (covers all 50 states) and reading LOTS of books.
Jack-fun math-money, clocks, measure; lapbooks of his choice and 1st grade Rod and Staff Reading with workbooks.
Evan-his letter books, number books and some fun preschool lapbooks.

All of this will go in their Workboxes (I will post more about this once we get them set up).  Hoping to go buy them tomorrow.
