What we are using

Week 3 Schedule

Here is a sample of the new schedule I am working on for next week. What do you think? This is for CC. She is in first grade and we are slowly adding more subjects. I have been looking over at Ambleside Online again. I printed out stories from Mainlesson.com. I really like this in theory and I had planned to use AO year 1. I just get nervous and want to make sure I do everything, but not too much. There is much that I don't agree with from TWTM, but I just can't get past the fact that I am a product of a classical education. I just have to figure out how to make it work for CC.
