My Bookshelf

Curriculum Bookshelf and Schedule (2019 – 2020)

I am so behind planning our school year.

I spent the spring helping another homeschooling mother form a new community and the summertime running sewing camps. So I’ve spent August scrambling to get my ducks in a row. Last year, I had everything ready by mid July. Oh well. That’s the good thing about homeschooling… flexibility. I’m still waiting on a few more resources to arrive. But I thought I would share a rough draft of options I’m considering for this school year. (We will likely not use ALL of these. ) Most of our curriculum is by: Simply Charlotte Mason, A Gentle Feast, The Peaceful Press, A Cottage Press, and The Good and the Beautiful. I’ll do separate posts on each subject once everything arrives. Check back later for pictures…. and revisions. 😉
