Sixth Grade Plans

I think I finally have it, but all plans are subject to change until I actually order! (and even then....;)). It feels like a lot this year, but some of this stuff will be done on a very limited basis. For example, I have her down as doing Rosetta Stone, La Clase Divertida, and Getting Started with Spanish. GSWS will be our main Spanish study, while the other two will take place only once a week (at most). We own both Rosetta Stone and La Clase Divertida, so I want to use them, but they will be used as supplements only.

One of my major summer tasks will be to try to come up with a workable routine for everything I want to fit in!

Anyway, here it is...

  1. Looks wonderful! I especially love the Unjournaling book and The Nature Connection. I may have to work those into my son's homeschooling next fall! Well, the nature one for both kids, the Unjournaling for my son.

    Thanks for sharing!
