Yesterday my daily Bible reading for Proverbs was
Plans fail for lack of counsel,
but with many advisers they succeed.
Since my recent plans have been for next school year, I thought I might seek counsel here.
My son is starting 3rd grade in the fall. I am keeping the year a bit light because we are expecting in October and we have been a family of 3 until now - so I want to give us plenty of room to breathe and adjust.
Here are the plans:
First Language Lessons 2
3rd grade readers from Abeka
Abeka handwriting 2
Abeka Spelling 3
A long list of books for independent reading including classics, modern lit, and nonfiction.
Rod and Staff 3
Strayer-Upton practical arithmetics book 1 (select word problems for added practice)
We have a large collection of Let’s Read and Find Out Science books. The plan is for him to choose a book, read it, do the experiment in the book if we can, and journal about it. He can get books from the library or we can find related videos if he has further interest, which he usually does.
A Child’s History of the World - he will read this independently and journal about it. I may find a timeline of some kind. We have tried and failed a few times on different timeline ideas.
Abeka our American Heritage
Many of the independent reading choices have a connection to the people profiled in the Abeka book.
Art, Music, and PE are largely accomplished around here on his own so I didn’t stress any specific plans this year.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I really appreciate any feedback, suggestions, and wisdom that you can give!
