Delight-Directed Planning

When I asked my children what they wanted to learn about this year, they
gave me all kinds of ideas, at least enough to take us through the spring!

Here is the refined list:

-Rocks
-Ancient Egypt
-Frogs and Toads
-Bears and Buffalo (inspired by our trip out West!)
-Spiders
-China
-Space
-Castles/Knights
-Pioneers
-Native Americans

I'll also sprinkle in some Five in A Row units and a couple of topics to coincide with field trips our homeschool group is taking:

-Apples
-Sweden
-The Arctic

I haven't come up with a definite order, but I do know that we're kicking our year off with Rocks and Minerals next week.

More on that to come...

  1. I can't wait to see what you guys do with rocks and minerals! I have to teach geology as part of an internship for my degree starting in two weeks. Hopefully I'll get some ideas from you all! :D

  2. Sounds great; you will definitely have a busy year! There is no end to kids' curiosity, is there?
