I decided to start school on the 18th (instead of the 20th when our local schools start) because as a homeschooler there is no need to start mid-week! Which means the planning started this evening.

We pulled out all our books. Here is Joe's pile: 
And here is Becca's. 
I found teacher planners at Target on clearance a few years ago for 25 cents each and am glad I stocked up, as they are quite useful in planning each week's lesson plan. 

I don't plan too far in advance in case we fall behind or get ahead of ourselves. It's nice to sit down each week and see where we are at and what needs to be done.

All that's left to do is take stock of our school supplies and add any that is needed. I think that we may actually be good to go, except for a glue stick or two! With having several workbooks already on hand and several other books on our shelves I think we managed to get away with just $150 for both kids for school books this year!


  1. 150? Ha Ha and to think I was congratulating myself for staying under 850! In my defense I bought a microscope, $286, slides and dissection kit $140, algebra dvd's $100.. High school is awesome. :) Seriously I am happy for you. :)

    1. A dissection kit....ewww!!! I know I got off easy this year! I'm scared of high school and all the advanced work I'll be needing to buy the teacher texts for! ;) What grades do you teach?

  2. 9,7,6,2,1. It will be a busy year! I had three different company's websites open checking prices on everything. Usually I buy a lot used but some things you just have to bite the bullet on. And yes on dissection days I plan to be absent. :)

    1. Oh my, you will be quite busy! And $850 for that many grades is amazing!

    2. Well thank you. You are very kind. I bought a lot used and had some already and use the library a lot. It works. :)
