CLE Math and Language Arts
VP Self-Paced History Courses

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

- 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

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.
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.

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.
