BBG580 Posted January 4, 2011 Share Posted January 4, 2011 I'm a little nervous to be $200 in (print + DE) for Year 2/ Units 3 and 4 with no supporting books but I figured if I bought now, started familiarizing myself with the curriculum, tried to use the library for the rhetoric level reading/assignments for myself over the next several months I'd get a better idea and confidence to use this curriculum! And it would give me the time to figure out which books I need to purchase, which we will skip and which we can get out from the library. We're going half pace and I'd like to have a basic outline of lesson plans for both units accomplished prior to the start of our school year (Aug. 1), understanding that I can adjust but at least having those basic plans in place. I did buy Map Aids, the lapbook kits for each unit, Student Activities and Evaluations. The mom on this board with the workbook instructions on their blog - THANK YOU. I will be using your template to create a workbook for my kiddo to use in the fall. http://web.me.com/rivendellpress/Rivendell_Academy/Workbooks.html I am also going to take the next several months to try and reorganize the Church History portion of the curriculum to reflect RC theology and history. A lot of legwork now but I know I will be happy later when things get busier with older kids and I already have some idea of how to adjust the curriculum to suit our family's needs. I know I am only going to have a 6 year old 1st grader but this is all new to me and I like to be prepared... :) I'm not actually sure why I am posting this other than that I am excited and have no one I can talk to about it in real life! So please cheering squad, cheer me on. :lol: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
