Okay, let's see, taking your outline:


Grammar: Abeka C


Science: using MSNucleus.org as my "spine", with loads of other books and worksheets, experiments, etc. added in - doing earth and space science - I'm also doing two 8 week geology group classes for the year and have talked a friend into doing two 8 week astronomy classes, too


Math: finishing up the elementary Singapore series with level 6; reinforcing with some misc. Key to.... books I already own; ds will also work on algebra with a tutor some, using an older Dolciani book


Spelling: Spelling Workout H


Logic: Thinking Toolbox and Fallacy Detective, one each semester


Latin: Latin Primer II


Writing: Writing Strands 3 and 4; also using Getty Dubay for handwriting. He may also do an online writing class with Write at Home. I haven't decided yet....


Bible: Memoria Press Christian Studies III


Lit: reading loads of historical lit to go along with our Medieval studies, but also including some worksheets I found online and used this year, too, for reinforcement, as well as a literary genre workbook I bought (although now that I look at it I like the stuff I found online better). He will also read similar works as well as science books.


History: using Kingfisher, SOTW and other sources, plus library books, etc. to cover Medieval history. He will do some of his own reading, too. I may also do an 8-10 week class covering some aspect of Medieval life.


I alternate Latin and Spanish. I'm using Spanish for Children next year. He also has a once per week hourly Spanish class with a native speaker.


I alternate Logic and Geography. I'm using the BF guide and map with a Holling book next year.


Art - He will do a once weekly, hourly class for at least the first half of the school year that will encompass some things like knitting, calligraphy, and five weeks of art history/appreciation that I will teach. He may also take a once weekly class with a local artist.


Music - he will continue piano lessons, moving into a 45 minute weekly lesson. He practices on his own time, rather than during school time. He will also begin some recorder or other lessons with this same teacher (maybe sax).


Field trips on Fridays!


I *think* that's all!

-- *Still* undecided!



-- LL online class

-- Latin for Children


Language Arts

-- IEW - writing

-- AAS - spelling

-- Literature on our own mostly

-- Does Memory work belong here? We do much memorizing of poetry, scripture, speeches, documents, et c.



-- Singapore via cybeRShala (love it more and more everyday!)



-- BF History of Science


History is undecided but I do have it narrowed down b/t Land of Our Lady and How America Grew (one person recommends using both . . . we shall see.)


Geography is undecided.


Fine Arts

-- Violin Lessons

-- Honors Orchestra (whoo hoo! violin, btw)

-- Piano lessons

-- I'm thinking about adding BF composer studies

-- Art lessons



-- Marital Arts

-- Play, play, play!


I just recieved the materials for our online Latin class, I've ordered AAS. I'm just now building my next year in HST and inputting Latin and maths classes and music lessons. By the time I finish that, AAS should be arriving. When AAS arrives I'll order Science and input AAS while waiting for Science . . . I'll save my undecideds for last and hopefully they'll be decided by then!

Math: Teaching Textbooks


English: LLATL ; WWE (to provide summarizing and note taking skills never covered) ; VocabuLit ; Spelling Workout


Science: RS4K biology. Supplement with [ ? ] to fill out the year. Will teach this to dd and her bf, once per week for the labs and discussion.


Science/Health : probably the 5th grade health textbook from ABeka.


History of Science: home-made course for history of science during the "ancient period". Spine books are from a series of history-of-science books, specifically the volumes for Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, Greece, Rome, and something else. (post-lunch slump here) Will teach this to dd and same bf, once per week.


Spanish: Calvert Spanish elective course, 1-A. I'm not enamoured of the textbook; however, I wanted the ready-made lessons. Unfortunately, I don't think much of Rosetta Stone, and disliked what I saw of "The Learnables" at the bookfair. PowerGlide does not appeal. Slim pickings for this age group, frankly. I prefer a secular foreign language course, too.


History: In theory, some sort of home-cobbled course on ancient history. Need to rely on secular materials (because it usually is far easier to add God, then to revise God, in a textbook). History, frankly, is my worry-point. Not at all that we lack resources [LOL] ! Just that there is so much amongst which to choose. I need to be comprehensive without going into overkill (the danger). Probably shall use the maligned-or-loved, depending on ones viewpoint, "white Kingfisher" book for the spine. The narrative is much better suited for outlining than is the narrative from the "red Kingfisher" book. (Usborne books feature manic page layout, so aren't in the running.) Probably will use Greenleaf "Famous Men" books for Rome and Greece (because already have them).


Literature: open shooting here. Have NO idea yet !


Religion: continuing foundations of the Orthodox Christian faith.


Geography: Correlated with history studies, as well as with religious studies.

Art history: Calvert's elective, History of Painting. (again, teaching this once-per-week to dd and bf)


[i'm packing science and "extras" into the every Tuesday session for dd with bf.]


Music: If money remains after these ever-skyrocketing medical bills, dd wants to resume piano lessons. (We stopped in order to receive results of the educational testing.) May God bless us with enough money for that !


Physical Education: Roller skating lessons


Have I overlooked anything ? :biggrinjester:

What did Hunter do before Latin Prep 2? My ds finished Latin for Children Primers A, B & C and we might do Henle next year but we aren't sure. Primer C got pretty hairy towards the end....there seems to be an annoying leap to much more challenging stuff, like all of a sudden they are translating English into Latin??? Anyway, I'll have to remember that your son studies violin and Latin too. My son just won the local concerto competition in his division -- woohoo! Almost all of the competitors were homeschoolers, which did not go unnoticed by the judges.


Thanks, Julie

Math: Singapore 5 (with CWP 4), Life of Fred Decimals and Percents, possibly take a look at RS Geometry. Ds loves geometry, and the Right Start program.


LATIN: Really open to advice here. Finishing LFC Primer C now (we homeschool year-round). Possibly Henle (I own this) or Latin Prep 2 ??? Advice appreciated on this. Will continue with Lingua Latina -- Familia Romana.


HISTORY: Finish SOTW 4, and possibly begin some sort of ancients study based on suggestions in Latin-Centered Curriculum. Mostly because I really want to do the IEW Ancients book.


GRAMMAR: Finish GWG 5 (this summer), either move to GWG 6 or R&S 6. I've never bought R & S before, but I looked at samples online and am intrigued by its rigor.


LITERATURE: will muddle along with WTM's help.


WRITING: CW Homer, but also IEW Ancients in case we get fed up with Homer.


MUSIC: violin lessons, orchestra, chamber ensemble


ART: occasional art classes at the local art center


SCIENCE: The Elements and also Carbon Chemistry. Same author -- I can look it up if you are curious.


P.E.: mostly karate and some skiing. He does yoga when I insist, like when he is stressing out about something.


SPELLING: Scripps Spelling Bee study, and possibly continue with Spelling Workout G?


That's all I can think of --- he does a lot of Lego Robotics, but probably no competition next year.
