Planning for next year

This is that wonderful time of the year that we with kiddos call Summer Break!! When you homeschool, however, it is also planning and preparation time. In New York state we need to have our IHIPs, or individualized home instruction plans, turned in by August 15th to our school districts, so the clock is ticking!! It's time to look back at the past year and think about what worked and what didn't, what things we need to shift our focus on. It's time to flip through the curriculum catalogs and browse the many many websites that are out there.

I think I'm pretty much set for this next year. Thankfully, most of the curriculum we used this past year worked well for us, so we'll just carry on with it. Our co-op group is expanding a bit too, so some of our needs will be met there. Just some fine tuning, and I'll call it good. Then, the planner can gather dust for a few more weeks... Yeah!!
