Follow That Child- Our 2017-2018 Curriculum

I can't believe that it's September already!  The summer has been long and smokey, but filled with lots of family adventures.  We've gone to the beach, camped several times, and saw the solar eclipse.  The only classroom preparations that I've actually finished was our Science Center with the tree frog habitat.  With Labor Day weekend at a close, it's now time to turn to our homeschool plans.

This year, Dragonfly is 6, Skimmer is 5, and Tadpole is 4.  They're still very young and active, so we're going to be focusing on the 3Rs (reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic) again this year.  We will also be continuing our science-based theme units like we have done in years past.  This year, though, we're going to spend more time Following the Children to study the things they are interested in.  Instead of deciding in the summer what we'll study every week of the upcoming year, I'm only going to plan a few weeks ahead.

These first few weeks, we'll study astronomy, since interest is high after the eclipse.  I've collected a large number of space books and some Safari toys (solar system and space toob).  This isn't an area that we've studied very much, so I think the kids will enjoy it.

We're also going to work on getting out of the house and into the world more often.  Using my 110 Field Trip ideas list, I'm hoping to create lots of learning opportunities for the kids (and adults).  I'm setting our goal at one outing a month, but it would be so awesome if we could do more.

So, that's our plan for the 2017-2018 Homeschool year!
