Our new year has begun!

Today we started our new year. I have a general plan for this year that I hope to stick with. Judging by today I think it will work well, but we'll see how things progress. And also how things go with a new baby come the spring.
But as it stands now, here is my pencil plan for the year:

Skylar (7) 2nd grade:
*Sonlight Language Arts 1 with Readers 1.
*Math-u-see Alpha, continue on from where we left off last year.
*Sonlight Intro to World Cultures
*Sonlight Science K
Goal for the year: Get her more confident with reading.

Summer (5) K:
*Sonlight Language Arts K with Readers 1.
*Counting with Numbers (by Rod and Staff)
*Sonlight Intro to World Cultures
*Sonlight Science K
Goal for the year: Working on her handwriting.

Both girls will be creating keepsake notebooks with coloring pages, print outs and such to go along with the Sonlight books we read. We did them last year for our FIAR books and the girls love looking over them. Relating to that, today we did some coloring pages on Gladys Aylward and China. And added a picture of Ms. Aylward that we found online to our Sonlight markable map. We also printed out a backpack and they told me what items they'd take if they had to travel a long distance like Gladys did. We also colored some rainbows for science, 2 days of the science readings and did the Sonlight science activity sheets for those days.
