Preparing for the Upcoming Year

12 Jun

Well, it’s that time again – time to buy new curriculum! Fourth grade here we come!

Actually, this year I am a bit late with it, working on getting my curriculum for each subject together much later than I did last year. By this time last year I had half my subjects scheduled for the year and this year I’ve just barely ordered everything – half of it has yet to come, and I’m hoping it will be here next week!

Spanish would also be beneficial because I could talk in Spanish a bit and find ways to make it useful during our schooling. But then I wondered, Am I doing him a disservice by NOT teaching him Latin or Greek? I never learned it in school. I turned out okay (I think),  BUT my vocabulary isn’t what it could be I guess.
