This year I will have children in 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 9th and 11th grades. This series of posts will talk about what curriculum I am using for each of the children, starting with 2nd grade and working my way up. Some subjects the 2-7th graders will do together such as science, history, Bible, and some subjects such as math are individual.
Individual Subjects: These are done every day. Anthony and Christian do all subjects together except for Math.
Math: We did not finish last year's books and I agonized almost all summer over what to do about math. Do I keep plugging along with what we were using, or do I need to find something else? Finally I decided to delay my decision. For now we will finish up what we did not finish last year, Math Lessons For a Living Education 5 and 6. When they finish these at the end of the semester I will decide what we will do next.
Language Arts: We will be using Student Writing Intensive A from IEW.
Spelling: We are a little more then half finished with All About Spelling Level 5 and will continue where we left off.
Handwriting: They will use PenTime.
Combined Subjects- All of the 2-7th graders do these subjects together. Bible is done every day. History 2 days a week, science 2 days a week., music appreciation and art one day a week.
Bible: We will be using up the rest of Bible Study Guide For all
Ages that we received earlier in the summer for review. We will be
alternating this with the Answers for Kids books that we started at the
end of last year from Master Books.
History: In the fall semester we will be finishing up the
America's Story series from Master Books. We completed books 1 and 2
last year and will use book 3 this fall. In the spring we will start
The Mystery of History Book One.
Science: We will pick up where we left off last year in Apologia Exploring Human Anatomy and Physiology.
Music Appreciation: We will pick up where we left off in Music Appreciation I from Memoria Press.
Art: We will be using a variety of things for art this year.
I would love to also add in Visual Latin but we will see how it goes ;)
It's going to be a great year!
