WHELP!  It’s that time, again.  Summer, for all practical purposes, is over.  That little factoid hit me today, like a ton of bricks.  Thank God it did, because I’m still lazing around, planning barbecue’s, like I’ve got six weeks of summer left!  So, I resolved to buy the last of our school supplies, now.  Tomorrow, I will go through our textbooks and decide which ones I can use and what I need to buy.   I’ll also decide exactly how I’m going to teach each subject, this year.

Since I began veering away from teaching, solely, with traditional textbooks, I find that my learning style changes a bit each year as I tailor it to fit each of my childrens’ needs.   For instance: This year, for the first time, I will combine Spelling, Language, and Reading, by studying the grammar of the books we read (library books), and choosing this year’s spelling lists from our readers.   We still use a textbook for math because I think the curriculum we use is excellent so, we’ll continue with that.

I bought a lot less this year because I only have two students.  It’s been 17 years since I only had two students.  I’m looking forward to it.  At the beginning of every school year, I decorate the walls with fall leaves.  I think I’ll do that while they’re asleep the night before our 1st day of school and surprise them.  Not sure, yet, what day we’ll actually start; so many things happening that first week of September (Looking at the calendar).  Yeah…we’ll start the 12th.

I’m going to blog about it and post lots of pictures, so stay tuned 😉

  1. Hey Pam, How is your older son that you homeschooled doing? Sorry I can’t remember his name right now. If I tried real hard, I would probably be able to remember, but I’m not running on all cylinders right now. And how are your little ones doing? I can’t even come up with their names. I need to go to bed! And how old are they now? That’s it for my questions for one night.
