Ambleside Year 1, Week 1

For whoever may be interested in this, I have a file with my flex schedules. There are suggested folk songs and Italian songs, and it may give you an idea of how to do your own little guideline for the year, month and week. This is the yearly overview I shared before but that now you can have as a word file, scroll to the bottom to see links to my favorite lists where I update the folk songs, hymns, and foreign language videos.

For accountability, fun, and to share with others, I will try to record our Year 1 week by week.
Last week it was our WEEK 1.

Very neat.. thanks for sharing. I am so interested to glean form others. Snippets from others have enriched my teaching and learning.

Me too, Chrissy, I glean and learn from all of you a lot!

Thank you for sharing! I find it hard to keep up with Amblesides schedule with 2 at different levels. I sort of intertwine the years together. xxx

Silvia said...

Yes Sarah, I have to admit that having only one for now for this whole year and another one before younger sister makes it to AO 1 makes it easier, I guess if I were in your position, I'd intertwine but specially, I WON'T FEEL A BIT GUILTY about some books missed or things not being fully according to one year. This was meant to HELP us not to SLAVE us, and siblings, when they are close in age (or even if not to a certain extent too) need to be together when learning as much as possible too, with their differentiation at times, but in much harmony as possible.
That being said, I ADMIRE those of you who so wisely combine schedules.
