Curriculum Choices 2013 / 2014

Curriculum Week in the 2013 Not Back to School Blog Hop

Well it's once again that wonderful time of the year that we have to start over! It's the new school year!! Jumping Up & Down - Not!! For our family it's a little different, we school year round and love it. We school 8 weeks on and 2 weeks off all year long. Our start date for our new school year is September 3. 

Being a part of The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew has truly blessed my family beyond measure. The items that we get to review have been wonderful. To try new publishers and have things work for my kids better and for the things that don't I give to others so there is no harm.

Our day will start with some basic circle time which might last an hour.

Daily review of bible verses
Calendar Time
Prayer & Devotional
We will be memorizing several items this year and we will be starting with the Presidents & Books of the Bible.
