For this next year, our math curriculum is being totally switched up. While I'm excited about what it will offer my children, I confess that I'm totally nervous. It's a whole new concept and style of learning than neither my children or myself are used to. Language Arts and spelling will also be different this year, and...I'm also adding a foreign language to the mix. Yay, me, lol!
So, here's what we will be doing when school starts...
Math U See for both children at their appropriate levels
Language Lessons for the Elementary Child by Sandi Queen (for the 8yo)
Explode the Code, Bob Books, and other readers (for the 6yo)
All About Spelling for both children
Various real books and other reading material for the 8yo
The Holy Bible for both children (although I'm still looking for a specific curriculum)
A Reason For Handwriting for both children (continuing with print for the 6yo and continuing cursive for the 8yo)
Apologia's Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day and Zoology 2: Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day for both children. The 8yo will do the Junior Notebooking Journals that go along with them.
Story of the World Vol. 4: The Modern Age for both children
Prima Latina for the 8yo
The Usborne Piano Course Book One for both children
Since I homeschool on a budget, I'll leave a few things I wish I could be using and may incorporate if/when I get the money...
All About Reading ($99)
We Choose Virtues character training ($70~$100)
An extra Math U See Manipulative set ($35) so they can have their own sets or extras
Rosetta Stone Spanish ($100+)
Prima Latina instructional dvd (around $40ish)
A 5 bedroom/3 bathroom house with a wrap~around porch leading to a sun room, a big, flat, backyard, oh... and a bonus room...for our homeschool, of course, and a piano. (I did say it was my wish list, so, I'm wishing!)
