Home School Plans for 2010-2011

This year we are using an eclectic mix of Mater Amabilis Level 1A, Catholic Heritage Curricula and Seton. Our aim is to give the children a variety of good living books, some straight forward directions and a good portion of imagination to build a memorable, enjoyable and virtue building school year. Academic achievement is important to us, but the ultimate goal in planning our home school is heaven. Whatever our children learn or do, should be used to know, love and serve God. With this in mind we chose to use the following to build this year's curriculum:

We are using Sue Patrick's workbox system as a tool to keep our home school organized and fun. That is a whole other post in itself. We will also be using the books: A Year with God, Catholic Garden of Puzzles, Sewing with Saint Anne, Tea & Cake with the Saints, A Catholic How-to-Draw (all from CHC) to enrich our studies. This is just an overview of the books we plan to use. I don't plan on completing every book from cover to cover, but hope to make use of the best parts of most of these. We are really looking forward to our study on Ancient Egypt and lots of read alouds. Now, if only the baby will be good and everything will run smoothly, execution would be a breeze. But as we all know, life happens. All the best wishes to all of you heading back to your kitchen tables, dining room tables, school rooms etc. God Bless and have a great new year of learning to know, love and serve our wonderful God.
