I actually participate in two homeschool support groups. We meet on Tuesdays and Fridays and this is my Friday SEEK group. SEEK is a homeschool co-op. We get together on Mondays and do school together at a private school that is closed on Mondays. It is great. We have met the last two Fridays to discuss some restructuring we plan to do with our group. I am excited for the new program and how it will be implemented. It is going to be awesome and it will set a strong framework for my entire homeschooling week. It is based on the classical model. We will do history, with a hands-on project each week, science (with experiment) class, Latin (I get to teach this one), art and music appreciation, with an art project and then some elective classes in the afternoon like musical theater and an additional art class or choir. All of the morning classes will coordinate with each other and the kids will put things into their timeline book so that there is an order to everything. The timeline book will be used over the years and we will also use it at home. I went ahead and made mine and we have already started. It is going to be great.
