***This is my IDEAL daily schedule. It never every happens that I hit every subject when it's listed, but this is what I aim for.***

I am still trying to add in Nature study, Hymn Study, Folk Songs/other songs (such as America the Beautiful) & memorization as I can. I am contemplating a "Circle Time" to start out day where some of this will be done including read alouds.

Great idea, Lisa...I also saw this at Stephanie's site and thought it would be a great idea for this year.

Circle time...we did this for most of this year and it was great. Nothing too much...Bible and prayer with some read alouds. This was the best part of our school year last year.

Sounds like a good plan. I need to work on my plan for next year too. I'm still too stuck in summer mode to get onto it though. Maybe because summer seemed to start so late.

Since I've only got one our circle is kind of flat. lol But, I've thought about doing this with her also. I really want to get into a regular Bible study time with her, teach her how to use various references, etc. We love read alouds too, and haven't had one just for fun in a while. It's always been tied to our unit. I think I might mix it up. Thanks for the thoughts!
