Each year our curriculum and schedule changes because our
children and their needs change.
Here's what worked for us in 1997-1998.
Our children learn better on process time so we have learned to master one tiny step at a time.
We use the following programs and if you need additional insight working with these curriculums, please click and review some of our ideas. We start the day off with focused academics and finish it with practical application and fun!

Weaver Program Vol.1 mixed
with Konos Vol. 1

direction along with the freedom I need to teach my moving targets.
