Since I have to juggle 6 kids I am sticking with the most independent things -
CLE Math and Language Arts
VP Self-Paced History Courses
Lively Latin 1 and 2

I plan to use Teaching Textbooks for math in the higher grades since that is also independent.

We are sticking with for my oldest...

- Elemental Science (as long as the levels keep coming out, we will keep using it)

- Tapestry of Grace (this is our first year using it but we are planning to continue next year, my son loves it)

- MCT (my son is crazy about this curriculum...He was more excited than I was when the rest of it came in the mail :))

- Spelling Workout (we will continue until we finish this series)

- Writing With Ease (my son needs extra help with narrations, so we are going to finish this one as well)

- Math Mammoth (he will eventually move on to Saxon, but we are going forward with this one still)


For my younger boys, we will continue with...

- Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading

- Spelling Workout

- Math Mammoth

- Tapestry of Grace

- Elemental Science

- Writing With Ease

LA: We may continue with MCT as a supplement only. Megawords is a given. We like IEW, Wordsmith, and WP LA resources. I use additional resources for writing as well.

History: It looks like we are going to continue with SL , WP, and a little of AO (depending on the year) adding in SOTW lightly for the younger kiddos who haven’t had that much of it..

Science: RS4K and Ellen McHenry are here to stay. Possibly SL science as well, depending on the child.

Language: Memoria Press:001_wub: for French and Latin, Visual Link Spanish, Hey Andrew for Greek

Every year I say I am going to homeschool differently, and every year I stay pretty much the same. We are relaxed, slightly CM, WTM and LCC "inspired" homeschoolers, for lack of a better explanation. :lol:

I have bought many different materials in my quest for something different, something possibly better. I guess I should just start putting all the money into things we know we like! I’ll have more cash for things we actually need.:tongue_smilie:

WWE/WWS!

SOTW

Oldest did RS math and now is AoPS pre-alg.

Middle is in middle of RS E and will likely do AoPS 3rd grade if it comes out this summer and then into MM5A/5B and then AoPS pre-alg.

Youngest is in RS A.

Will probably do RS Geo with all of them. Oldest has done half of it.
