Reading Response Page

I'm beginning to put the pieces together for next year's schooling. There are going to be quite a few balls in the air for me, but mainly it's going to look like this:

ALL FOUR TOGETHER:
Memory Work: Booklet of apostle’s creed, catechism Q & A, scripture, American history quotes

Daily Sheet: States and Capitals (just states for younger two), math Qs, date, time, 

Science:
Biology: follow along with what the older two are doing at their tutorial

History:
American History--Indians through Westward Expansion

Art Appreciation:

Music, Art, Dance, Poetry, Museum Field Trip (Choose two a week)

THE OLDER TWO:
Saxon 6/5 Math
Tutorial Homework
Extra Writing Assignments (1 Essay per week)

THE YOUNGER TWO:
Saxon 1 Math
Leveled reading work
Handwriting practice

And because all of them will be reading a lot of "outside" books and I want to be able to keep up with what they are reading, we will be using this reading response page I just made up:
for the younger two

for the older two
I'll have to basically fill it out for the new boy, but by the end of the year, he should be doing a lot of the writing on his own. 
(The oldest will be leading the littlest through "Pre-K" lessons that she comes up with her own.)

So it's beginning to come together, and as always, I'll be excited to see how it works out in actuality!
