new lesson plans

well we started our new lesson plans yesterday, and it seems good so far, ha ha.
we started reading Our Lady came to Fatima and we will read a chapter or 2 each day that we do school, (which I think for the most part will be Monday, Thursday and Friday. Tuesday the kids will have some independent work and be able to catch up if needed but no group work other then bible reading and Rosary, because I have prayer group in the afternoon and I plan on using it for errand day as well. Wednesday my older daughter prays with Blue Army during adoration and my younger daughter goes to a home school group, so it can be the day my son mows the lawn and catch up day for me.)
but, we will have vocab from the book which I will give them the words and then they can find the meaning and write it in their own words. we will be learning about world war 1 and Portugal for history and geography, handwriting will be d'neilen (Sp) starting with l, science will be weather and earth, moving into solar systems if we move quickly, music and art will be whatever strikes our fancy, which is not decided yet, although I did get out some religious artwork, the last supper, Sistine chapel etc... They also have a book list that they work off of and then write in their reading journal. Hoping to have some fun stuff to do in the next week or to, we have just been swamped the last few months,
