Monday Monday

Mondays are Science / Natural History day in our house!

In an effort to have some order and regularity, awhile back, I took the AO readings and split them up into daily themes.  So, today we had all the normal fare, and then we got to the good stuff...

Astronomy  - we read this with EVERYBODY, little Mya included.
Fairy Land of Science
Christian Liberty's Nature Reader
Physics Lab in the Home - this a new book this term and I think the boys are gonna like it!! ;)
Nature Walk
Handbook of Nature Study (focus: birds)

Hooray for Nature Day!!!  It's our favorite because we all like our time outside SO much!

Tomorrow's Literature day... probably our 2nd favorite day of the week :)

If you're curious, you can see how I've split up the week by theme on our sample week list.  I print a copy of each week's list for each of us (this is a big project that I work on ahead of time each HPD.  I do a whole 12 wk. term at a time).  The boys keep track of their own readings on their own lists (that is when they keep track of their lists...)  One day, I plan to hand over the planning to them... they'll be in charge and have to decide which days/hours to read what... oh won't that be delicious?!  :)  just waiting for things to ripen a little more in the responsibility category, if you know what I mean :) 

I hope you all had a wonderful Monday as we did :)

Thank you for sharing your schedule. It looks great! I too really enjoy making our AO schedule each year. How did you make your template? Do you use Word? What font did you use for the handwriting?

I'm asking myself THE SAME, what a neat font, how did you do it?
And great idea to save a day for each "subject". I like it.
Glad to hear you had a great Monday, your homeschooling looks fantastic, I mean it completely.
