New week, New schedule

A new weeks starts tomorrow and I decided to prepare for it.
I made charts for the kids to add to their folders so they can be a little more independent in their work.
Included are pages for copywork, writing, math for the week, and their charts that allows them to sign off what has been done.  I get a lot of organizational ideas from some wonderful blogs.  One of my faves is Our Busy Homeschool.   I loved her posts on homeschooling, organization and even spiritual enrichment.  This post on notebooks was a great catalyst for me to get my kids and myself organized.
Between great blogs and wonderful books, I think I might be getting the hang of this.
So what's up for the week?  

The boys are working on
Scripture Study: which includes morning personal reading of scriptures and family devotional.

Copywork: (handwriting practice using great literature)-  10 commandments

Journal:  Pretty much self explanatory.  Kids must write in it daily

History:  We are doing Story of the World/Tapestry of Grace and Mysteries of History.  A little bit of each plus I am adding a book to read as a family.

Reading:  15 minutes silent reading.

Language:  Hebrew and Spanish, maybe restart Latin.

Science Apologia Anatomy

Shakespeare: Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare 

Plus we are doing 2 co-ops.  :D

As the weeks come and go, I will be adding more subjects like Language Arts, which the kids are doing.  I just need to wiggle it in somewhere in my new schedule.  

Even though I have been homeschooling for years, I am still learning when it comes to organization.  I am very grateful for those moms who put themselves out on blogs because I truly learn from them.  

I have a long road ahead of me when it comes to organization and homeschooling and housework etc, but I am really excited to start on it.
