Good Bye Summer

July 31st already??? Wow! Where has the summer gone??

Are you still in summer mode or are you vamping back up for school mode?

This week we have started the planning of our school year. Thankfully with doing Classical Conversations it makes my job super easy.

This year LeddyBug will be doing Foundations with a brand new community!!!

Being a part of CC is been such a blessing to this family. First of all it is super easy especially for an over planning mama like me. And the bonus, we get to hang out with our friends doing fun games and activities once a week (for school)!

This past week I went on CC Connect, an online at home file sharing site, and started browsing what others have been sharing and trying to figure out what we would be incorporating into our day. Picture 1 is all the wonderful stuff I found and Picture 2 shows how simple our notebook looks like.

Last year I had divided our notebook by subject. It was easier for me to print everything and keep it organized, but we soon realized that the big binder intimidated LeddyBug. I had to take each week’s work out and put it into another folder for her and then transfer it back. Needless to say papers got lost, torn and crumpled. This year we decided to divide our notebook by weeks.

I searched for numbered tabs that go 1-24 and could not find them but I did find some that go 1-12 and since CC has 2 semesters I just divided it for Fall and Spring, like the Challenge program does. Now LeddyBug just has to open her notebook and look for the week number and do those sheet in that week. (I’ll let you know how this works for her)
