Recommended Posts

Which may be revised after the year is over and we evaluate how it went:

 

Singapore + BJU math (but I'm testing the MEP free math right now)

Lively Latin

Copy, dictation and narration based on WWE (Writing with Ease)

 

SOTW 3 for history

R.E.A.L Science Life

 

 

Reading from the library

Art at the local art school

She wants to try the National Mythology Exam this year so that will take up what would be our literature time.

Bible: We use the Book of Life to supplement our Bible reading; but are using a Responsibility Bible Study right now and are going to start another missionary lapbook soon.

Math: Abeka Arithmetic 3

Penmanship: A Reason for Handwriting - Transition

Reading: various ( Doors to Discovery reader by Christian Light and chapter books <she's really into Katie Kazoo>) & we're using an old program I found at our homeschool library called SRA Reading Power (to build thinking skills-only 2x a week)

History: SOTW 2 (with siblings)

Language Arts: LLTL yellow book, with Write Away handbook and worksheets for reinforcing concepts that are brought out in LLTL

Writing: paragraphs and 3 paragraph essays (no particular program); starting to incoporate IEW methods-outling and rewriting

Spelling: Spelling Power (3x a week)

Vocab: Wordly Wise (2x a week)

Typing: Typing Instructor Deluxe (2x a week)

Piano Lessons

Science: This has been hit and miss this year. We started out with Considering God's Creation (did a few sections; it just wasn't holding our attention); did a lapbook on bees after we studied insects; picked up an Abeka health reader at our homeschool library and have been reading and discussing that; we just started back using CGC this past week-studying the human body)

 

We really enjoyed the Elementary Apologia Astronomy that we used last year; I highly recommend it. It was lots of fun. I will probably use one of those next year with my 4th grader and Ker. I'm surprised at how much we are enjoying LLTL. Many here think it's light, but I'm finding that it hits on everything and I love how it teaches grammar through literature. It also includes spelling, but we were already using Spelling Power and decided to stick with it.

 

HTH,

Patty

As of right now, this is the plan...due to change!

 

Math-Right Start level C (we are a bit behind)

 

History/Literature/Geography-Tapestry of Grace Y2U4-Y3U?

 

Science-child lead learning...they (I will have a 1st grader too)have expressed interest in the human body, the sea and tidepools, chemistry, and lots of different animals. We use lots of living books, various worksheets, notebooking pages, lapbooks, experiments, and field trips. We will also continue doing our nature study informally.

 

Writing-IEW SWI Level A;have not decided if we will continue with WWE as well.

 

Latin-Latin for Children A

 

Grammar-Growing With Grammar 3

Spelling-??????????? Spelling Power or Phonetic Zoo???????????

 

Misc.-Mindbenders, MCP maps charts and graphs

 

Through our charter school he will continue taking-Drawing, Music Appreciation, P.E., and Science (Astronomy).

 

We are also looking into him playing the violin.

Singapore Math & MUS (finished Beta and started Gamma)

 

Easy Grammar 3/4 (because we already owned it)

 

Pathways Reader (because we already owned it, but it makes it easy for him to read to dh)

 

Spelling Workout (but we're switching--this program did not work, nor did my favourite, Spelling Power)

 

Handwriting Without Tears Cursive (love this program)

 

SOTW

 

RS4K Chemistry

 

Swim lessons

 

I know I'm missing things we do. We haven't yet started Latin, although I meant to, nor have we started German, which he's begging to start (RS). We school year round, so I'm going to add these by the end of the spring.

Spelling - All About Spelling

Grammar - Growing With Grammar

Writing - Writing Tales 1

 

Literature - various selections from 1600-1850 plus historical fiction, concentrating on the US

 

History - SOTW 3, supplementing US history with a variety of books

This is the tentative plan for my middle DD, who is a 3rd grader next year:

Writing: WWE 2 and CLE cursive handwriting book

Phonics: Little Angels phonics D

My youngest is currently in second. Here's the tentative plan for her next year.

 

Math-Right Strat C (currently in B, yes we're behind) probably adding in some Singapore.

 

English

My dream is that I will write my own curriculum for the Little House series over the summer incorporating literature, grammar, writing (using the WWE copywork, narration, and dictation plans without the workbooks), spelling, vocabulary, and all things English. I also want to take field trips to a bunch of Laura Ingalls Wilder sites and maybe throw in a few arts/crafts projects which my dd totally digs even though I'm not that great at actually doing them.

 

Whether I end up pulling that off or not, we will definitely do:

GWG-She just finished her phonics program about a month ago and we started GWG 1 because I have this thing for starting at the beginning. I'm thinking we can move through 1 and 2 pretty quickly and will probably catch up to GWG 3 sometime in her 3rd grade year.

 

ETC-She is currently on book 4 and likes it well enough, so we will just continue. I don't have any particular goals as to what books she will complete when. We just start the next one when she finishes the one she's on.

 

AAS-I am having all of my kids do this together. We are currently about half way through Book 2 and will keep going at our own pace. Hopefully we'll finish Book 2 this year and get through books 3 and 4 next year.

 

All of her other subjects are folded in with her big brothers. My 6th grader is doing k12 for everything except math and I have my youngers do history, art (aligned with history), and science along with him.

Only a month and a half left of Third grade and this is what we have done:

 

History--Story of the World at the rate of 1 chapter per week, she colored the map or coloring pages while I read.

 

Latin--Finished Minimus and started Lively Latin in January. Lively Latin has been great.

 

Composition--Classical Writing Aesops

 

Math--Singapore

 

Lapbooks--She picks a topic and we learn about it over a 2 to 4 week period and lapbook the results.

 

Science--outdoors, the garden, life, pet rabbits, etc. We also used My Pals are Here but she wants more experiments.

 

Literature--she reads a variety of books on her own. Her love is graphic novels especially Baby Mouse.

 

Music--Piano

 

Physical education--swim in the summer, gymnastics this spring, playgroup on Fridays.

 

It has been an excellent year for us and we have made a lot of progress.:001_smile:

We will be using:

 

3rd grade English paces

WWE 2-for composition

Spelling-Rod and Staff spelling 3 (Also some dictation from Spelling Plus Dic.)

Reading-Pathway readers 3rd grade level-no workbooks, just oral buddy reading and narrations. Also lots of trade library books for reading and pleasure.

 

Math-CLE (level 2, hopefully we will work our way up to 3 within the year. If we don't, that's okay too, since CLE's math is spiral and introduces things earlier than mastery math programs.

 

Science and Social Studies/History-I'm thinking Abeka, but not sure yet. I'm still thinking about this one.

 

Bible-Bible Study Guide

 

I buy art supplies, he creates drawings, paintings, and crafts. :)

 

I'm a big believer of strong language skills from k-3rd, so serious history and science study will begin from 4rth grade on up. :)

 

Blessings!!

Grammar: FLL 3

Composition: WWE (1? 2? 3? currently in 2 and getting a good narration is like pulling teeth. Don't even ask how dictation goes around here.)

Reading: my own made-up reading list - a mishmash of other reading lists

Spelling: AAS

Math: Horizons 3 + our own math games and hands-on activities

Bible: continue in our children's Bible and Keys for Kids

Penmanship: only if he can't yet write cursive for other subjects - if he can, then I will require neat cursive writing for some and consider that penmanship. If not, either Abeka Writing w/ Phonics 3 or my own: passages from Scripture, history, and science to trace/copy in cursive.

PE: TKD, soccer, Homeschool Family Fitness

Logic: Mindbenders, Logic Liftoff, games & fun stuff

Latin: looking @ the one Logos School uses... I think it's called Latin Primer?

Music: guitar lessons? Themes to Remember? Classical Kids Collection?

Science: Earth & Space Science using one of these: R.E.A.L., RS4K, God's Design Series, Apologia, TOPS learning, Christian Kids Explore... research for this is pending. :D

Nature Walks/journaling: using Comstock's (sp?) book

History: THE BIGGIE THAT COULD CHANGE IT ALL. Currenlty on course to move onto SOTW 2 +AG for 3rd gr., but have been highly distracted and tempted by SL, TOG, and MFW, with a light draw to VP. Some of these, if chosen, could change the choices for other subjects above completely. :tongue_smilie:
