Did you mean currently? or planning for next year?


My oldest will be 7th next year....so this is still in the "thinking" stage...


Bible - Bible Study Fellowship - Acts

History/Geog/Lit. - Probably TOG finish yr2 begin yr3

Science - maybe Apologia General

LA - SWO F - grammar undecided (maybe CLE 600)

Math - CLE 600

Spanish - Visual Link

Extras - Chess, Co-op w/P.E. and JV Basketball, etc.


When I see all the probably/maybe/undecided... I'm not sure I'm much help! :lol: (Well, maybe it will be helpful to me to see it in black ink and finish deciding soon).

This is what my oldest uses/used. He has had a "brain fog year" that started in 6th, mingled with a hefty dose of tween mood swings, and we've been repairing the snapped wiring on his internal motivator sensor. :tongue_smilie:


Grammar: R&S English

Writing: Classical Writing OB (Even though he's done Aesop and some Homer. It seemed like the best path for him, and it's worked out well.)

Spelling/vocab: R&S 7, and we put a strong focus on derivatives in our Latin study

Literature: VP's transitions list, and more in history

Logic: Traditional Logic 1

Latin: Latin for Children and into Latin Alive (started LFC late)

Math: R&S

History: VP's elementary, beefed up with more lit/writing

Science: ACS's Middle School Chemistry, and some Apologia's General Science


My second will use the following, assuming her brain doesn't turn to mush between then and now.

Grammar: R&S English

Vocabulary: R&S 7, derivative study in Latin

Writing: Classical Writing Diogenes Maxim

Latin: Latin Alive 2

Logic: Traditional Logic 1

Math: Lial's algebra 1

Science: finish General Science and head into Apologia's Physical

History and literature: Omnibus 3 with Spielvogel's Western Civilization

History, Bible & Science -- MFW Expl-1850 (had started it earlier this year, but decided to put it on hold a year)


Apologia General Science


Saxon Math


Foreign Language -- Continue dabbling in French and Latin rather loosely.


Language Arts:

-- Continue with Building Spelling Skills from CLP

-- Undecided about the rest, but it's either going to be MFW recommendations (All-in-One Grammar, Writing Strands & Progeny Press), or Abeka or CLE. I'm working on our LA decision right now.


Fine Arts:

-- Ballet

-- Music studies in Expl-1850

-- Piano either taught by older sis, or going back to formal lessons if we can afford it

-- Undecided about Art

We'll be using:


Math: Saxon

English: Rod & Staff

Greek: Elementary Greek

Latin: Latin Alive (I think)

Writing: Writing Strands, WTM Writing, Killgallon, Exploring Poetry

History/Literature: SL7, Figuratively Speaking

Geography: Map Trek, and I think we're going to work through Evan Moor's new 7 Continent series (the Europe on will be here today, and if I like it, we'll keep with them).

Logic: Critical Thinking Books 1 & 2

Spelling: Sequential Spelling

Vocabulary: Dynamic Literacy


My boys get art and some science at a one day a week enrichment program. We'll continue with Judo, piano, and Trampoline & Power Tumbling, but I think we're going to drop Public Speaking for a year or two.
