Plans for a New School Year

Our School Year 2009-2010 Fall Term
Our "official" school year has begun. I thought would share our plans for this first term. I've included links so you can click on the items for easy access. Of course there are downloads and smaller less frequent supplements that I'll be adding in as fillers, but this is the main outline that I'm working from. I am actually schooling year round so some of this term's activities were already completed in the summer months. For example, Chloe is way ahead on math. She's completed all of this term's math requirements over the summer. I'm holding her off for a while so she doesn't get too far ahead. I hope that this is helpful to someone. The total cost of this term (if you use Internet links and not the hard copy versions) is approx. $49 (plus the $35 for Apologia which I'll use all year). Not too bad!
