Two subjects I try to combine is science and social studies. However, academics is very important to my dh.
Now that my eldest is going into the 7th grade, dh and I decided to step the game up a bit.
We do better using a curriculum.
So... all of this background to say that I made a plan.
I wrote down all the kids' grades/ages and decided what I wanted to use from now until my youngest is in high school.
I am rotating things so if they do it in kindy, we might do it again their 5th grade year with a younger sibling.
We are using NotGrass, My Fathers World, Apologia, etc...
It took a lot of time, but I'm also open to changing it as needed. However, this plan takes the guesswork out of when to teach what at different times and to which kids.
I also left options for the kids to share areas of interest in high school and a few othet options.
Was it a waste of time to plan 13 years of my curriculum choices?
