I have two (soon to be) first graders for which I plan on typing up IHIPs so we can start our very first year of homeschooling this September.
My only concern when typing up their IHIPs is that because they are in the same grade, the syllabus information (learning goals/expectations) will be the same and I will be using almost all of the same curriculum for each girl.
Will it be a problem if both IHIPs are almost identical? The only differences will be in the personalized information at the top and then the short introductary description of the way I plan to design each girl's learning experience based on their unique learning style and interests. All of the rest will be the same word-for-word (aside from maybe two primary textbook resources). I'm scared this will be a problem...will it?
I hope this question makes sense! :) I don't want to run into any problems with the state so I'm really trying to cover all my bases.
No, it won't be a problem. If they were in a public school classroom they would have the same syllabus, right?
In fact, I have a 2nd and a 3rd grader this next year, and for many subjects their work will be exactly the same (history, geography, science). We don't have to do any paperwork in my state, but if we did, some of theirs would be identical.
I'd assume the state's goal (I hope) in making you do this is to ensure you do in fact HAVE a plan, at all. :)
