Yearly Homeschool Planning

Ok, I stepped way out of my comfort zone for this but I had a few questions that I wanted to answer and thought a video was the easiest way to do it.  

So, here it is!!  Let me know what you think and if you can actually understand my ramblings.  :)  If you have any more specific questions, do leave those in a comment below and who knows you may get to "see" me again. 

Here are larger photos of the forms that I showed in the video since they were kind of hard to see.

  1. Awesome information, Melissa! Thanks for posting this video, nice to see you in person!

  2. Thank you, Jackie! I'm glad you got a chance to watch. I hope to do a weekly planning one soon. Let me know if you have any questions that I can answer.

  3. Hi Melissa,
    Thanks for the calendar! I am beginning to feel a much needed sense of order as I prep for next year. Looking forward to following you on your blog this school ear!

  4. You are very welcome! Thanks for stopping by!!

  5. It was a great idea to explain your approach to school planning with a video. I feel like I am always doing lesson planning and like how most of yours seems done even before you start. I'm currently hosting a lesson planning link-up and organization is the last topic - September 5th. I would love for you to join in. -

  6. Ok great! Thanks for letting me know!

  7. What a great idea to do a video of all that! Sometimes just hearing someone talk through something is so helpful. Thanks for linking this up to Trivium Tuesdays!

  8. Hi! We love My Father's World as well! It's been the perfect fit for us since we lean more toward a Charlotte Mason approach. We have done Adventures, Countries and World Cultures, Creation to the Greeks, and this year we will be doing Rome to Reformation. Love, love, love! You're a bit ahead of me on your school year. We probably won't start for at least a week after you. Blessings!

  9. so awesome Amanda! Do you blog? I would love to follow along with others who are doing what we are!


Thanks for stopping by - let me know that you did!
