Here's a whole thread on them from the Logic Stage Board... http://www.welltrainedmind.com/forums/showthread.php?t=338853

but I'll share anyway!


For ds who will be 11 by then...

We're basing nearly everything next year off of the Dangerous Book for Boys, The Dangerous Book of Heroes, and, because we're doing this with dd8, The Daring Book for Girls. For history, physical education, handicrafts and practical living skills, and a fair amount of science plus some language arts, this is our inspiration! We'll add in movies, literature, documentaries, hands-on, etc. and the following:



  • Language Arts: Brave Writer/AO's recommended sequence for language arts; Natural Speller
  • Latin: Either Getting Started with Latin or English From the Roots Up (which is more vocab than actual Latin)
  • Main Math: Math Mammoth Blue series (topical)
  • Supplemental Math: LOF Fractions and Decimals & Percents
  • Science: Notebooking our way through BFSU, finishing vol 1 and then moving into vol 2. I am beefing this up for ds with the Kingfisher Science Encyclopedia, various upper elem level topical books, and some more hands-on.
  • Literature: from various resources

We may read aloud from A Little History of the World once a week to keep everything in context, and because it is a lovely book to read.

Spelling/Vocab : Soaring With Spelling

Reading : Reading Detective

HWT : Zaner-Bloser Cursive

Geo/History : We might continue with Bob Jones if I cannot find anything that is more simpler (don't like all the different books, like TM worktext, etc)

Science : Nancy Larson Science 2 (supplement when needed)
