IHIPs: Finished!




I finally finished them!  Twenty-two pages for all four children.  Now I "just" have to come up with a new schedule and teach it :).  We already registered for ballet, fencing will come next, and also homeschool coop, etc.  I guess school really starts soon . . .

Ich habe endlich meine Planungsbögen für die Schulbehörde fertig bekommen: zweiund-zwanzig Seiten für vier Kinder.  Jetzt muß "nur" noch einen Stundenplan schreiben und alles unterrichten :). Wir haben uns schon für Ballett angemeldet, dann kommt noch die Anmeldung fürs Fechten und die diversen Homeschoolgruppenveranstaltungen.  Ich glaube, das neue Schuljahr fängt wirklich bald an . . .

  1. Bravo Eva! Ich bin auch soweit und schicke am Montag alles mit der Post ab. Letzter Termin für mich wäre zwar November, aber ich möchte doch lieber schon zu Schuljahresbeginn alles gemacht haben und nicht mehr daran denken müssen.
    Wünsche nun ein gutes Anfangen! An welchem Tag geht es denn dann bei euch "so richtig ernst" los?

    1. Daß Ihr das immer erst so mitten im Schuljahr abgeben könnt, finde ich sehr komisch :), aber ich gratuliere Dir natürlich auch zur fertigen Planung! Ich bin mir noch nicht ganz sicher, wann wir anfangen, weil Peters Eltern noch zu Besuch kommen wollen. Peter fängt am Montag an, die Schulen am 3. oder 4., wir aber auch bald.

  2. Hut ab! Das scheint mir eine Menge Arbeit.
    Ich habe auch schon ziemlich vorgeplant. Aber nur für eine Klassenstufe. Und ich muss es nicht übersichtlich für andere aufs Papier bringen.

    Liebe Grüße

    1. Ja, ich habe immer das Gefühl, ich gebe eine Bibliographie für eine Hausarbeit an der Uni ab! Man muß halt alle Lehrmittel und Unterrichtsmaterialien auflisten und sagen, was man damit machen will.

  4. Wow, that is a lot of work! Is this required by NY state? I can't believe school starts so soon. We begin after labor Day. Jeremy is all set, and Olivia and I have been working year-round on her curriculum. We are half way through her learning-to-read program and first grade math. She progresses slowly through her work due to a short attention span, but picks up information fairly quickly. Trying to get her to read though a story is like pulling teeth, but I know this is just temporary. I just have to persist. Once I can get her to focus, she reads through it quickly! I am grateful for homeschooling. I can imagine she'd not fare well in public school.

    1. Yes, this is required here. You have to list each required subject, and tell them what materials you are going to use (with author, publisher, place and date of publication) and what you are going to do with those. If you are using you own homeschool approach, this is extremely time consuming. Signing up with Seton, e.g., would at least reduce the number of sources to cite, but MODG or STAA would also give you a lot of books to write down. It's great to have when it comes to college applications, though. So I guess it's all worthwhile. I'm not quite ready for school to start either. Where did my summer go? I didn't even go swimming once! Olivia will get there, my Charlotte also took a long time before she did read. I had to change gears with her after Jonathan learned to read so quickly. We used the phonic booklets from CHC, they are not expensive, fun, and reallly work! She is still young, there are so many other things to discover at this age (like the colors the sun makes when it shines on the water in the mud puddle!). Now Charlotte actually reads more and better than Jonathan -- at least fiction. Good luck to you with your new year!

  5. Thank you! Yes, she did much better tonight. I got her to stop wiggling and focus, and she breezed right through! I don't like to get too stern when teaching, especially with learning to read, but in this case it worked. My daughter is much less affected by sternness than my son was. He was so prone to anxiety that I had to be very careful when I corrected him. My daughter responds to a firm hand; she is very strong willed and hardy.She exhausts me! ;)

    1. Interesting, how different children can be, even in the same family! Being stern also exhausts me, especially the older I get. I don't feel like being stern anymore, I think they should just behave. But I guess parenting is not that easy.
