I know I promised to list out some of the curriculum I am planning to use this coming year, but I'm not quite sure I'll be able to do that right away! Right now on the yahoogroup I'm on for homeschoolers who are implementing an RDI program, I am being encouraged to shift my focus from academics for the next year or so. Instead, I would focus on implementing our RDI programs, and have some incidental learning taking place. I am not completely comfortable with this idea, but I am considering the implications of dropping some subjects and backing off on some expectations, to free up time for RDI implementation and planning. Also, this would allow us time to linger over the subject areas we keep intact.
So this is our anticipated subject listing, for grades 3 and 5:
Writing - Narration/Copywork/Dictation
Writing - Composition
Vocabulary (Austin only)
French (Riley only)
Spanish (Austin only)
Reece's learning to read, learning to write, and learning about numbers.
Now, if I'm going to back down with academics... what goes? Do I really do this? Can someone guarantee me that it's all going to be OK in the long run? :) So this is where I'm at... with 34 days until school starts! LOL
