A good proportion of the resources I’ve chosen this year are completely different than we’ve used before.  My goal is to shake it up and step it up this year and by studying different subjects and using different resources I’mhoping to overcome a ‘slump’ that our homeschooling seemed to fall into.  My goal for this term is to study the basics 3 times a week, but the general knowledge subjects to study them once a week – and slowly make progress over the term.  My idea was to have variety in the week.  So far, we’ve had one week and it has worked well.
