This is just a “note to self”. Lists of potential plans for Posie. This year’s plan has already been posted, so these are just reminders for next year’s planning time, in case I forget some of the tentative decisions that have already been made.
18/19- Revised Common Lectionary (RCL), 19/20- RCL, 20/21- RCL & Cloud of Witness (CW), 21/22- RCL & CW, 22/23- RCL & CW, 23/24- RCL & CW
This subject is tricky. She’s had a great year with Saxon, but would like to switch back to Teaching Textbooks for 7th grade. Once we see which one she likes best, we’ll know which curriculum will fill in this blank for the duration, unless with throw in some Jacobs’ for good measure.
Lit lists are a combination of lists pulled from Simply Charlotte Mason and Memoria Press, plus a few books that her older siblings enjoyed along the way.

Compositions with Friends (translation: we might use these in a co-op setting, otherwise, probably not. Just good ol’ written narrations.)

Being CM fanatics, we have mixed feelings about Apologia Science at our house, but if we study science with friends in a co-op setting, this is the order in which we plan to study it.

French has been paused for a study of Spanish for three years, then a return to 3 years of French. Spanish resources will be purchased through Classical Academic Press, most likely, and Talk Box Mom.
