BBG580 Posted January 17, 2011 Share Posted January 17, 2011 How much time do you prep? Do you plan entire semesters ahead or just a week ahead? I am not using boxed curriculum and I feel like I've probably chosen curriculum that all requires a bit of a learning curve and a lot of prep work on the part of the teacher but I am curious as to how others plan ahead? I am planning to year round school with 8 weeks on M-Th, Fridays for errands/field trips and co-op/homeschool group activities and then one long weekend of Friday/Monday off during the 8 week period so we can travel and whatnot. And then 2 weeks off for Christmas and 1 full week off in the summer for a beach vacation. This should give me our 180 days of "school" time to report to my state. I am preparing now because I am slightly terrified *and* excited to get going. We'll start July 1. I am hoping to have the entire first 8 weeks planned out before we start. I am using ToG, PR1, Unit Nature Studies with extra read alouds, a mix of Singapore and Miquon, and an ongoing world geography project that is linked in my siggy. How do you plan? I really like the workboxes idea, unit/semester notebooks and so on. Just curious! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
