Unsure what I posted on the original thread, but we have made some changes.
Ds12 (7th grade):
Language Arts–planned to use ABEKA 6, but after 9 lessons realized it was too much busywork. Currently using the Daily Grammar website. (I print off the lessons so he can’t see the answers). When we finish 90 lessons we will switch to spelling using the 1000 most common words list. We are reading various books about animals. Read-alouds (I read to him): So far Caddie Woodlawn, The Incredible Journey, Peter Pan, Charlie’s Raven, The Jungle Book, and Anne of Green Gables.
Math–continuing prealgebra from Schoolhouse Teachers. Next year will use Teaching Textbooks prealgebra.
Science–Introduction to Agriculture using books from Storey Publications and 4H materials
Social Studies–he had originally wanted to study Canada for the entire year, but tired of that idea quickly. We turned it into a year-long world geography class using the Lands Peoples Cultures book series
Art-at the beginning of the year we had no definite plan for Art, but he likes Art Study (CM-style), so I am implementing that once a week. Hope to study Degas and Homer. He also draws and paints occasionally.
Dd9 (4th grade–Special needs)
Language Arts–she reads to me, either from a picture book or a book from the Troll Easy to Read mystery series. She has listened to ALL of the Paddington books and is currently listening to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. She is not doing formal grammar at this point b/c I am trying to follow CM guidelines about waiting until grade 5 or later to begin. We do occasionally play file folder games and she is exposed to Schoolhouse Rock occasionally. As for spelling, I am at a loss how to teach it. We went through the 1000 words list last year, and she knew about half. It’s the half she doesn’t know that I’m unsure what to do with.
Math–currently using worksheets to learn regrouping. When she finally masters this skill, I am tempted to begin Teaching Textbooks with her (thanks, Jeanna, for confirming it’s good for special needs kids).
Science/Social Studies-world geography (different booklist than her brother). Science correlates by including relevant animals in the study.
Art-she is my little artist and is either painting, drawing, or using Microsoft Paint on a regular basis.
ETA: After reading my original post, I need to add:
Ds12 Daily Bible reading schedule; Poetry of Kipling and Millay. Are not using Book of Virtues for Young People
Dd9: Bible Stories for Older Children; Poetry of Carroll and Rosetti
