I have been busy at planning our new school year.  Our focus this year will be on geography and cultures.  I've chosen Galloping the Globe (GTG) as our spine.  I've really liked what I've read so far.  Its a unit study approach and encourages notebooking.  Many of the book suggestions are also Five in a Row (FIAR) books.  Since we LOVE FIAR we will be using thoughts books when there is one for each country.

I will post soon a more detail plan for our year.
