Welcome back to Literacy Musing Mondays. As August rolls in so does the back-to-school season. My daughter attends public school in our small town. Living in a small town, the school are much like private schools. You know your teachers. Most of my daughter’s teachers are Christian and go to church, regularly.
As I look forward to the new year, I have a few goals in mind:
- Review our state’s curriculum for her grade. I do that by going to the SC Department of Education website. I am sure your state has curricula guides as well.
- Make sure she has read her summer book before the end of summer. Does your school require summer reading? My daughter’s does. She is reading: The Future of Us by by
- Double check for the school’s registration dates.
- Buy the all important back to school supplies. Our State’s Tax Free weekend is next week so we will be hitting the malls to buy her back-to-school clothes and the items on her grades’ supplies list that the school provides. These supply lists include a lot more than paper, pens, and notebooks. We have to buy our daughter batteries, hand sanitizer, Ziploc bags, and band-aids. What crazy things are on your child’s back-to-school list?
If you are a homeschooler, I know your list must look a lot different. Share with us in the comments section below. When does your school year begin and what are your goals for the new school year?
Now on to our weekly Literacy Musing Monday’s linkup where we link up posts about what inspires you in reading, writing, blogging, and even share our written Bible devotions.
Now let’s celebrate family-friendly reading and learning.

These schools blend private and home-based options and model the school day after the actual experience your child would likely experience in college. It really is an interesting article with great resources.
My Favorite Post of the Week:

Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House Series and Miracles at Maple Hill are books that can top a myriad of lists. This list really includes some fun titles and even a few book that I had not heard of before.
