What's in Store?

Well, I have the entire first term planned out in a beautiful spreadsheet / table, but I cannot figure out how to get it on here. While I work on that, I thought I'd share our plans for week one. These are our plans for our Family Work: 

The Children's Story Bible by Vos (daily readings): 1-4
Child's History of the World ch 1, Creation
A Living History of Our World Chpt 1
Very First Americans p.1
Holling Book of Indians Foreword & Chpt 1
CM Geography: 2 Sections
Aesop: The Wolf and the Kid
Tortoise and the Ducks
Oak Meadow Fairy Tales E & F
Seven Little Sisters, Brown Baby
Child's Garden of Verses: 4 poems
Outdoor Secrets & Companion, Lesson 12 & 13
Burgess Bird Book 1 Chpt
Renoir: 1 Print & 1 section of A Weekend with Renoir
Read about Orchestra, Peter & the Wolf
Work on memorizing Family Rules
Little House in the Big Woods
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

As far as the girls' individual work, we'll be on a "do the next thing" sort of schedule. There's really no planning needed here. They just need to work at it daily. Here's what they girls have in store:

The Princess (primarily guided work with me):
Letter pictures for two Oak Meadow Fairy Tales, E & F
Delightful Reading Lessons, 3 per week
Read aloud to me, 10 minutes per day (for practice)
Math Lessons for a Living Education, 3 times a week
Dreambox Math, 15 minutes 3 x a week
Queen Language Lessons for Little Ones, Volume 3
Letter Writing Practice, E & F

The Hippie (primarily independently):
Cursive (Pictures in Cursive PRIMER), daily
Math Lessons for a Living Education, 3 times a week
Dreambox Math, 20 minutes 3 x a week
Life of Fred Elementary, 2 x a week
Language Lessons for the Very Young, Volume 1
English for the Thoughtful Child, orally with me 2x a week
Read aloud to me, 5 minutes 3 times a week (so I can catch any mistakes)
Assigned Literature Reading
Free Literature Reading

We also have our weekly Handwork Group scheduled as well as a field trip to the zoo and an afternoon park day with our Homeschool Group. Should be a fun week.
What do  you have planned?
