2nd Semester Plans

This year I broke our school year up into 4 quarters. Each consisting of 9 weeks. So we school 9 weeks and then take 1-2 weeks off.

Right now these are our plans for units the next two quarters. (And of course some may change a little if I cannot get the books on time.) This will end our 2010-2011 Unit Studies, and hopefully the kids will be finished with their LA and Math curriculum in May. If not they will continue those subjects on into the summer break.
