s/o. For those of us who have already made lists...

Recommended Posts

Well I know we'll move on to Singapore Math 2 and 4, FLL 2, and WWE 2 & 4 (or my own version of it).


Still debating on FLL4 or something more independent. However, knowing now that the next level will be out soon tempts me to stick with it.


SOTW1...I think. Toying with MFW ECC, but it might be "too much". I'd like to keep it simple and actually do everything next year.


RSO...biology maybe? If we ever finish Earth & Space this year, that is! DS wants chemistry, but I'm not sure DD1 will be ready. We'll see.


Maybe LFC A, if DD1 is ready. She'll be a young 2nd grade, so we'll see.


Maybe La Clase Divertida 2.




I guess I'm still pretty undecided, but I have direction...lol.

Art - Artistic Pursuits

Computer literacy - Typing proficiency, begin teaching use of Microsoft Office programs

Logic - Logic Safari followed by...?

Maybe adding Latin, at least for my oldest who will be 5th grade next year

Probably Logic for DS1 as well, but do not know where to start with that :tongue_smilie:

I've finished planning and have moved on to scheduling. :hurray:


I'll have children in 8th, 6th, 2nd and K.



Math: Singapore, Life of Fred, Art of Problem Solving


English: Galore Park, Classical Writing, Michael Clay Thompson, Memoria Press, Hooked on Phonics, handwriting workbooks


Latin: online classes


Greek: online classes


French: Galore Park

I love reading these lists!!!


Okay, for us. Next year will be our first year reporting, so I'm a little nervous.


Jenna: (5.5 at the start of the year. Officially kindergarten, unofficially 1st grade)


Subjects required by state:


English -

Literature: We read 30 minutes a day, will continue. Just reading a bunch of good books.

Spelling: continuing with AAS

Math - will be continuing with Singapore and Miquon. Currently in 1A, will probably be halfway through 1B by the end of this year, so 1B-2A for next year.

Science - Elemental Science Biology

Social Studies - SOTW 1

Art - Unsure if I'm going to design the program myself or get a prepackaged curriculum.

Music - self-designed music appreciation, recorder

Health - I'll probably just pick up Abeka's health book for something quick and easy. But we cover "health" everyday.

Physical Education - dance, soccer, maybe cheerleading.



French - finish L'Art De Dire, maybe do Le Francais Facile Jr? It'll be mostly repeating information, but could be a good review. DD won't be old enough for any of the other french programs I've found. I'll eventually start L'Art de Lire, but that's for grades 3-up.

Spanish - Might do La Clase Divertida. DD is doing really well with French and has expressed a strong interest in learning Spanish also. I'll wait until it's closer to next year and see. We might really focus on French for the first semester, and then start Spanish the second.

Logic - finish Lollipop Logic, move on to Primarily Logic.

Religion - Thinking about the new program from PHP. It looks like something we'd enjoy.

Next year I'll have:


Ds, 3rd grade:

Math--Horizons 3 and Math Mammoth

Latin--Latin for Children A

Composition/Grammar--Classical Writing Aesop A

and Composing Sentences (Kilgallon)

Spelling--Spelling Workout (determining which level now)

Classical Studies--Memoria Press's Famous Men of Greece

Literature--Black Ships Before Troy

The Wanderings of Odysseus


DD, 1st Grade

Math--Horizons 1 and Math Mammoth 1


Composition--WWE 1

Grammar--FLL 1/2

Spellling--Spelling Workout A

Literature--Blue and Red Fairy Book, various other fairy tale collections


They will do together:

Bible--A Bible Study Guide For All Ages *or* the new Olive Branch Books Bible study just published.


Science--NOEO Chemistry and GEMS kits

Nature journals


History--US History I, cobbled together by me, largely literature based, with Mem. Press's new edition of the Guerber US histories for the spine and Homeschool in the Woods' Time Travellers series, History Pockets and various craft books for "fun."


Geography--Beautiful Feet's American Geography using Holling C Hollling books.


And maybe some random logic workbooks from The Critical Thinking Co.

Math-Continue Singapore

Reading-Continue Scott Foresman reading series for comprehension practice, plus literature related to history and lots of free reading

Handwriting-Copywork and HWOT cursive

Latin-Continue LfC/Minimus combo, with LfC B/Minimus Secundus

Other-Lab science class, Ballet, cheerleading/tumbling, piano


Changing next year-

Greek-Hey Andrew, mostly because I don't think DD is ready for GfC yet.

Spanish-Spanish for Children. DD's enjoyed Elementary Spanish, but I don't feel like she's learning much new.

Science-AIMS just plain didn't work. Too much work for mommy to set up experiments that get downright boring to repeat. We've ended up mostly reading books from the library. I'm looking for a good spine, something like SOTW for Science, where we could read about a subject and then get resources and come up with activities to try together.


History-DD wants to do American History. She's enjoyed CHOW and Sonlight for Ancients, but I'm not sure about a lot of the literature selections for Core 3, so I'm thinking I'll use the spine and put together my own booklists.


Music-DD is finishing Kindermusik this year, and I want to find some sort of group class to accompany piano lessons since she really likes the group, maybe a good children's choir?


Starting new-

Science-Easy Classical (combined with 3rd and 4th)


That was fun ;) I like seeing thing written out.


For sure we will use Bob Jones for my 6th and 8th graders.


I'm almost sure the rest will use too. I like how Easy Classical is set up. The only thing that may change is Science for the younger grades 1-5. If it will be easier for me I may choose 1 level of Bob Jones Science for all and use it as a read aloud.


That's the plan :)

We already have most of the materials for next year waiting in a plastic tub in our basement. I'm collecting resources as I go, with an eye to what we'll need in the future, especially since our income can fluctuate quite a bit from season to season. The only things I have left to buy are RS C, a telescope, (possibly) a Spanish program, and (also possibly) a typing program.


DS6 will be in second grade next year, and he's mostly at grade level with the exception of his reading, which is much higher, and his handwriting, which is a bit behind.


Writing - For actual handwriting, we'll continue our homemade copywork with a focus on readability and breaking some bad habits that I doubt we'll eliminate before then :glare:. For the process of writing, we'll continue WWE without the workbook. I might try to find occasional supplements for creative writing, and we also have Writing Strands 2 if needed/wanted.


Grammar - We'll continue FLL 2 (we're in FLL 1 now, will prob. finish before year's end)


Spelling - We'll be using a homemade spelling progression based on Phonics Pathways.


Reading/Phonics - Our reading will be loosely based on WTM recs. with lots of library time. We'll finish Phonics Pathways if needed and choose several family read-alouds (TBD, except for a few neat ebooks I found: Chaucer tales for Children and Spenser for Children!!)


Math - We'll finish RightStart B, start RightStart C, and maybe explore some supplemental word problems.


History/Social Studies - SOTW 2 with activity guide, Geography for Every Kid, many many extra resources.


Science - We'll be doing WTM-style astronomy and earth science plus using Earth Science for Every Kid, Astronomy for Every Kid, and a LOT of other resources.


Language - I'm uncertain at this point. I'll be researching Spanish options if our budget allows for it.


Art - We'll be using Draw Write Now, but not in any serious way.


Other Extras - We'll start actual hands-on kitchen/cooking stuff. (If I don't schedule it in, it won't get done.) I have several kids' cookbooks to work with. We'll also being doing another round through Dave Ramsey's FP Junior set for reinforcement. We might start a formal typing program, if I can find one I like that we can afford.

Bible/Religion: videos on different world religions and other materials I already own

Latin: will continue with the Latin Primer/Grammar series, finishing up Primer III and doing Grammar I


Spanish: will continue with Barron's Spanish Grammar the Easy Way at home and outside class; currently deciding on a different workbook for the class.


Greek: will leave it up to him whether he wants to continue or not, so haven't decided on a program.


History: I have a basic list from my last time through Modern World and will be tweaking it for use.


Physics: I have a ton of resources and kits; I just need to sit down and put together a plan for using them.


PE will continue with outside activities; Piano lessons will continue; and we'll have to wait and see what's available insofar as other outside classes or activities....

A lot of our stuff is running 6 months ahead. We're starting "2nd grade" in the next couple of weeks so we'll finish out 2nd grade in the fall and start 3rd grade. So, our plans look like this:


* Reading: CLE Reading 2/3

* Language Arts: CLE LA 2/3

* Horizons 3

* Elemental Science: Chemistry

* SOTW - 2/3

* Meet the Masters (art)

* Sequential Spelling B

* Latin - NO clue yet

* Piano Adventures for music theory

* Sign Language


DD also takes piano and voice lessons, ballet and swimming classes, and plays sports and will continue those next year as well.

We're not changing up very much for next year. Most of it will be the next level up in the same curricula they're using this year. I'll need to buy the consumable parts for R&S books and FLL 3, and everything for the oldest.
