Yay! Can’t believe it’s time to start another one of these posts!!!
So this year I will have a preschooler, 2nd grader, 5th grader and 6th grader, plus 2 new babies! (Yes I ended up with TWINS who arrived in December!!). I am officially freaking out! lol but I am looking
forward to seeing what this year brings. God knows it was best to follow His plan for the year last year with so many subjects being online/DVD… I am trying to continue to simplify our homeschool so we have time for other things.
Here are my picks for this year and I think I am pretty confident this time although who knows right? If I make changes once again I will comment again later.
5th and 6th Grade
Reading: We now have Kindles so I will hopefully buy a few Kindle books and we will all be reading, discussing and journalling the same books in a notebook. We will probably use a lot of the books I choose for Diana Waring’s History as well as books of interest including some classics
Writing: Continue IEW and move on to Continuation B my 6th grader would like something that teaches creative writing. Any suggestions for something inexpensive?
Grammar: Fix-it Grammar Level 2
Spelling: All About Spelling
History: Diana Waring continue and move onto Romans and Reformers
Science: Jay Wiles Science in the Beginning
Math: Teaching Textbooks (5th Grader wants to go back to CLE, we will try TT first and if it’s not working I can always switch for her)
Health: Horizons Grade 6
Foreign Language: Mango Languages and/or duo lingo
Grammar/Writing/Spelling etc- The Good and the Beautiful Level 2
Handwriting- The Good and the Beautiful
Reading- Finish AAR levels and reading the Good and the Beautiful books with me
Math: Math U See
History: (see above-working as a family)
Science: (see above-working as a family)
Health: (she wants to do health so I am considering Horizons Grade 2)
About Three Preschool Workbooks, when we are done we will work slowly through CLE Kindergarten II. We are thinking about doing AAR Pre reading and/or Sonlight, plus piano.
That is the line up so far. I plan to do some character building also using Laying Down the Rails for Children and I plan to buy a YWAM missionary book set to use for read alouds this year. Excited about this year.
What has everyone else planned?! Can’t wait to hear!
