Not only does the calendar tell me so, but my “educationological” clock does too.
For the past nine years, August has basically been homeschool CURRICULUM month. I’d pull out all the old stuff, and see what was still salvageable/saleable, and then pop into a couple local curriculum fairs – – just to check out the latest and greatest, and then spend the rest of the month blissfully planning and scheming and envisioning what terrific things we were going to learn in the coming school year. I hate to teach, but I adore to plan!
Now, even the planning has been wrenched from my capable little mitts because this year we are experimenting with UNSCHOOLING. (Which I have to admit – – as a term – – I still really hate!)
But if you are following your interests, there really is nothing to plan. No organizational software to punch figures into. No crisp, colorful catalogs to thumb through.
There is SUCH a hole where my Daytimer used to be!
Anyone have some lessons that need planning?? Anyone??
