Lesson Plans....

Here are our lesson plans for the upcoming week. So far things have been good. The only issue that we have had is not finishing the days work on time. Everything does get finished by the end of the week though. Please tell me if you think that maybe there is to much here to handle for them. I am curious to hear what people think. I personally do not think that there is but I also question if I am right or not. I think that it would be helpful to hear what other people opinions are on this. Just for reference Sam is in the third grade and Gabe is in Kindergarten.

I dont see anything wrong with it. It looks good. I dont think this is too much at all. I cant believe that you dont have to spend hours a day in reading and comprehension. I could only wish.
You should join cuddles Mr linky thing on homeschool review. I have the graphic on my blog. When you do a week review like this you can put the link to it over on her sight and others can read it then too. You could still add yours for the week. You might get some more input that way. Besides, its fun to see what everyone is doing.

Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your Homeschool Weekly report! I have also recently struggled with children not finishing their work in a timely manner and have now tried to implement a sort of "home work" policy...if work is not completed because they didn't finish and it was because of 'goofing' around then they now have home work that night before any play.

I wish that I could get mine up, but I have been still battling this morning sickness. My mom even is staying with me all week to help us hopefully get back on our feet.

I look forward to reading your next week's homeschool!

Oh I forgot to add that I think your schedule looks good :) It's just so hard to iron out what works for each family and what subject takes what amount of time.

HTH's a bit!
