I thought maybe I'd ease into blogging again by joining this blog hop. We loved all of our curriculum choices last year, so we're continuing on with them this year.
The oldest: 8th grade
She will be doing Bob Jones Writing and Grammar 8 this year. She is actually just going to be doing the grammar portion of it this year.
She will be completing IEW, which we started last year, for writing.
She will be doing Teaching Textbooks for math.
She will be doing the Resurrection to Reformation study from Heart of Dakota for history, science, and Bible, with a lot of extras thrown in (like poetry, art, and spelling). She did Creation to Christ last year, and OH, how we loved it! I am very excited to see what this year is going to hold!
She will be doing Switched on Schoolhouse Texas History in the spring as well.
The middle one: 5th grade
(Let me just take a moment to GASP. Eighth and fifth grade? Wow.)
Her plan is pretty easy this year, and I am anticipating a good year for her.
She will again be using Bob Jones for English 5 and Reading 5. She is well familiar with these, having used them since first grade. We are former homesat customers, and have DVD's for classes from K4 - 8th grade.
She will again be using Teaching Textbooks for math.
She will be doing Preparing Hearts for His Glory from Heart of Dakota this year. She actually did Creation to Christ with her sister last year, and I know it's weird to go down a level, but she is not ready to go up a level, and I would actually like her to repeat the Creation to Christ curriculum when she is in 7th grade, so I think it's going to work well to have her do Preparing spread over two years. This will cover her history, science, poetry, art, Bible, and spelling.
And, the little one: Kindergarten (also unbelievable.)
His plan is very simple this year. He is ready to learn and asks me two things just about every day. 1. Can one of his friends come over, and 2. Is it time to do some school. I'm anticipating a fun year with him!
He will be also doing a Heart of Dakota curriculum. His is Little Hearts for His Glory. (Yes, I am a bit nervous about running three HOD programs at the same time.)
He will be doing Bob Jones K5 Beginnings for phonics, reading, and handwriting.
He will be doing a Singapore Math workbook. I'm really not sure where we will land for math. I'm really not sure exactly where he is now, so this is the one area that might change quickly. We may end up starting Math U See Alpha pretty quickly, or sticking with this workbook, or really I don't even know.
Okay, so that's it for our curriculum choices. It looks so overwhelming to see it all written out here! (No, it REALLY looks overwhelming now that it's all sitting on our bookshelf!) I am very excited to see what this year holds for us though. :)
I will be linking up with Heart of the Matter today and plan to join in with all of their August blog hops as we get ready for NOT back to school!
**NOTE -- I would love a "buddy" who is going through the same HOD curriculum that we are, so please be sure to leave me a message if you are! Especially the RtoR. I'm a big fan of comparing notes and sharing ideas along the way!
