happycc Posted July 14, 2012 Share Posted July 14, 2012 (edited) how and why do you do it if you are using a lot of the "do the next thing" curriculum? What are you inputting on the book and/or computer program. I feel like I am doing something wrong as I am not really writing anything down... these are what we are doing: WWE-we do a whole weeks worth in one day for each child FLL-we do a lesson a day for each child Teaching and Review Grammar for 2nd and 3rd grade-one child is doing 3 days worth in one day Right Start c-we just turn the page and if my kid needs more review we keep reviewing until she gets the concept and then we move on Story of the World-I read a chap, they write the narrations and we file in binder, do the map work and coloring all at one time (any activities --i do on the fly we have the materials on hand, if not I make a photocopy of it for dad and when he wants to do them with the kids then it is done as a special me and dad project) AAS-do the next step (a step a day for all the kids unless they need more review) Study island-they do subjects (la, math, science, history)each day dreambox-15 minutes each day Key to series-do a page a day Singapore-do two pages a day Mep-do the next lesson Handwriting With tears-again do the next page Logic-a page a day or so Getting Started with Latin and I speak Latin-again do the next lesson Beast Academy and Hands On algebra-throw that in sometime during Christmas or whenever we are bored around the house Memory Work time-10 minutes Music-10 minutes of working on memorizing the words to choir songs Awanas-10 minutes Reading/Literature: they read to themselves every night and morning while everyone wakes up slowly usually a book of their choice-classics or a book from some kind of book list, I just asked them if they liked the book and who the characters are etc. Simple ...much of the time I become interested in their reading and want to read the books myself or they convince another sibling to read the book after them. No literature guides/questions at this point. Nothing connected to what we are studying. Science-a whole nother game...have no idea what I plan to do with this We will be adding Essentials in Writing-don't know what that is like yet Also looking into MCT- not sure how that is set up either--hopefully do the next thing too. If we miss a day...we miss a day but continue on the next day we can get to it. We try to do five days a week. Maybe I am doing all this homeschooling thing wrong....
