One thing I love about these literature based curriculums are the format of the assignment sheets/lesson plans. It makes my planning so much easier because all I have to do is tweak by adding and deleting things I want to cover.
This one is from Week 1 of Winter Promise Quest for the Middle Ages and as you can see I added my own notes. SIMPLE!
This is the page from Sonlight's Language Arts K.
One of the things I added to WP's Animals and Their Worlds was a mural project. Our first 6 weeks will be all about animals living in the African Savannah. I found a great link on http://www.guesthollow.com/ for Jan Brett's Mural idea.
This is the beginnings of our mural. We "got it going" because I didn't want to stare at a blank page. From here on out we will be adding one plant or animal daily.
