Ready or not here is comes! A brand new school year!
This year we have 5 big girls in school, with 2 little ones playing at our feet. We are so excited to start a new year of learning together, in a small home full of love.
We don’t start our school year in September like most do around our great Country. We start our school year the second week of October. We will take the month of September and the first week of October to enjoy the beautiful weather and one last family vacation.
We school 4 days a week year round and take off September and the first week of October off. This gives us 895 hrs of work at 5 hrs a day and 179 days of school which is fantastic. We end up still having 13 free floating days for sick days and spare of the moment field trips.
We will be doing many unit studies as a family these are extra fun things that really bring us all together. We use these times to relax and break away from all the normal things like math and spellingJ
September we will be going over the Appalachian Trail as a family. We are off of school the month of September but the girls would like to do something, so this should be a fun family activity. No grades just all for funJ
We will be reading lots of books listing to great music, watching a DVD or two and cooking lots of foodJ
Other family unit studies for the year will be a study on Ireland, A look at our State history, and life in the Great Depression.
To be continued…..
