Geeky Homeschool Mom

Just like all other home school moms out there, this time of the year is probably a favorite for many. Planning time. Looking through catalogs. Purchasing items. I feel like I should be wringing my hands together and laughing a maniacal laugh. Anyway - thought I would share what we have come up with for 6th grade year that will start in early August. We will be doing summer school but will only include: math, history read alouds, literature read alouds, reading and grammar. We will finish up our nature studies of garden plants too. First I will show our weekly schedule and in another post specifically what we will be using for each subject.

Here's a great tool for memorizing scripture. You memorize verses by typing them; First while looking, then with every other word hidden, and finally without looking at all:

I know what you mean. I am geeky about planning and organizing a new, exciting year. (Course, I do it for a few more students than you!). Every year I petition God for help...and He shows me an amazing way to do it. It is awesome!

I can so relate! I'm in the middle of planning, printing, copying, etc. And I really enjoy it!
