Mary's Top Ten: Rule of Six

Posted by nechc on April 4, 2008

Last year I found this:

Rule of Six to use for planning school.

1. Prayer and Catholic Culture
2. Imaginative Play
3. Good Books
4. Beauty (art, music, nature)
5. Ideas to Ponder and Discuss
6. Meaningful Work

I added these to make my Top Ten Article:

For my other 4: Be sure to do so with Faith, Hope, Love and Patience.

This is the sample school plan I came up with:

1. Prayer and Catholic Culture— Religion Chapter a week, read about a saint a week, daily prayer to start day, meals and bedtime.
2. Imaginative Play—free time 1 hour
3. Good Books—read 1 hour a day, support for reading ½ hour of Spelling, Grammar, Phonics
4. Beauty (art, music, nature)—Listen at lunch. 1 hour of art on Monday, Nature sketch book daily, look up what you see and Journal.
5. Ideas to Ponder and Discuss—Read from Biographies, History, or Bible
6. Meaningful Work—Come up with a list of chores that really help the house.

For my other 4: Be sure to do so with Faith, Hope, Love and Patience.

As you can see coming up with a homeschool plan can be simple and joyful!
