Sometimes we loosely follow themes or unit
studies. The topics are selected either by the boys or myself. When I choose
them, I select ones that I think the boys would like or ones that correspond
with an upcoming event or holiday. For preschool or the earlier grades, we don't
follow any rigid schedule or plan for how to use the resources. The younger unit studies are much more child-led;
I make the resources available and we go from there. As the children got older,
we introduced more structure.
