Praying, Planning and PreparingDari
Well it is that time of year again….time to start thinking about curriculum for next year. When considering what to do for your school there are a few things to remember….
PRAY- The first thing to do is pray. Pray that God will give you wisdom as you decide on your curriculum. Pray for the patience to finish out the rest of this year. Pray for objectivity as you choose from the vast numbers of curriculum available.
PLAN – Start to develop a plan for next year. What subjects are you wanting to cover? What areas do your children need to concentrate on next year? Where is your schooling weak? Where is your schooling strong? We have a tendency to spend time where we are comfortable and avoid those areas where we feel weak. Take an objective look at your schooling and plan for covering the weaker areas.
PREPARE – Prepare for school next year. Ask yourself these questions: which items will you purchase? Which items you will borrow from the library or from friends? Which items need to be purchased before school starts and which that can be bought throughout the school year?
As we continue to work on Illuminations we are going through the same process, just in a little different manner. We are praying – constantly – for God’s wisdom, strength and guidance as we write Illuminations. We are planning – which books to use, what subjects to cover, when to cover those subjects and how to make the content usable for all students.
Team Illuminations understands the stress involved this time of year. We hope to alleviate some of that stress by providing you with a complete, chronological, customizable guide for a Christian Education. Illuminations can help you as you map out your homeschool journey.
