School Year Plans for 2015-2016 - Let's Go!

I love the planning phase of the school year. I have so much curriculum and reading material already here, but still have to refine it for each child's learning styles and interests. What worked for Max did not work for Molly, and Nick has proven to need a third outlook.

It's not all the three R's. Where's the hands on art, where's the extra curricula, where's the fun?
It's there. We work it in.

The Plan. Life always changes the Master Plan, we will be flexible with what is thrown our way this year, but this is the main structure, we will add more, take some away as needed.
