Learning Logistics 2008-2009

Every year I like to compile a 'master list'
of the curriculum, tools, and resources
that we use or intend to use during our year of learning.
It took me a little longer than usual this year
but I did, finally, get around to putting it together. Ü

I, usually, post this list on my blog
(mostly for past and future reference)
and thought it would be a lot of fun to have others share.
It can be a real delight to see other's ideas,
discovering new resources, or being reminded of ones
that, perhaps, we considered before.
I just thought it would be fun, all the way around!
So, I bring you Learning Logistics...
the planning, implementation, and cooridination
of the details of... our learning at home.

Below is a list (though not exhaustive/detailed)
of our learning logistics
for this year of learning in our home.

If you'd like to share
your learning logistics for the year,
please grab the graphic below,
provide a link to this post (so others can join),
and sign the Mr. Linky at the bottom. Ü
I look forward to this time of sharing!
Lord willing, we'll share each fall in the future. ;o)
