Lesson Plan Time

Diva and Country (these would be DDs 3 and 2, whom I’ve not introduced yet, but will), are ready for new lesson plans. In spite of all the turbulence of the last few months, they’ve been plugging along, and making progress.

Country is well into her 7th grade math book, which is [tag]pre-algebra[/tag]. She’s doing well in it, and that’s a relief to me. Teaching math is not my strongest talent, but she needs it if she plans on higher education, even at the local community college. or one of our local schools. In the grand scheme of things, it’s not too soon to think about preparing her to do a [tag]concurrent enrollment[/tag] type thing with the community college. In the meantime, I need to get her next batch of lessons ready, and will probably spend some time this weekend working with her on that.

Diva has spent the past year doing a modified year of [tag]Ambleside[/tag], and I think she’s ready to begin year 4, if I work closely with her for the first few weeks. Because these older girls work so well independently, it’s easy not spend the time following up with them that they need, so I will be building discussion times with them back into the schedule.

Speaking of [tag]schedules[/tag], it really is time I dusted off my old one and really looked at it. Believe it or not, I did have one that worked at onetime, and when I followed it, everything got done. I know that’s amazing to think about, given my fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants life lately, but it’s true.
