I have started tackling the 5th grade history textbook as of late last night and will be moving on to the 6th grade book when this yearlong project is finished. 🙂
There are 15 chapters in the 5th grade book. Each chapter has about 4 or 5 lessons. Let me go ahead and total that up for you. I’ll be back in a minute.
Ok-I’m back. 60 total lessons. There are 36 weeks in a school year do hmmm….. I’ve got some planning to do to be able to cover the info and not just ” skim” it. 🙂
So my summer project is to read each lesson and come up with activities for each lesson. I mean I’ve got to relearn this history in order to teach it and teach it well. 🙂
I am finished with lesson 1 and only have 59 more to go!! Talk about progress! And of course when I read something and then write about it I understand it even more. So I will creating binders for each lesson in live binders. It’s a cool website where you can create online binders that are like 3 ring binders. Here’s the 1 st one I created on lesson 1.
Of course, I will be writing a quick little post about each lesson, too, so if it bores you to tears you can just skip these posts. 🙂 Or you can trudge through them with me and help me learn this history and even give me some inspiring ideas!! Hint hint!!!
