The new school year is at my family’s doorstep, and I’m beginning to shift my thoughts from summer vacation back to homeschooling and lesson planning. With the 5th edition Foundations Guide changes, I know that many of you have also been planning ahead and wondering if I will have new lessons focused on the new guide.
As I looked through, I decided that I will not be adding new lessons for weeks 1-6. The drawing lessons for weeks 3-6 still correlate to the guide for that week, so that leaves weeks 1 and 2, which I had connected to the science memory work. The drawing lesson for week 1 focuses on animals and insects, which can now be related to the days of creation. The lesson for week 2 is a bear drawing, and bears can be found in almost every biome, from Giant Pandas in the tropical rainforest, to Polar Bears in the arctic tundra. I feel like its a good fit!
My plan for the next few weeks is to put out a few videos exploring how to prioritize great conversation in our art lessons. And, of course, I’ll update any necessary changes to the great artists lesson plans later in the year, most likely in the beginning of December.
I hope you all enjoy the last few weeks of summer. I sure plan to!
