Decisions have been made, orders have been placed, packages have arrived, planning has began (more on that tomorrow).

This year our curriculum will go as follows
Tyler, age 3
Katey, age 7
  • Five In A Row, using lots of science from the Usborne science books and Nature in a Nutshell as well as history/geography
  • Hooked on Phonics upper level phonics
  • Copywork
  • Lots of reading
  • I am still undecided on her math, right now we are working on fact memorization.
  • Leaving room for review items

Emily, age 11 (almost 12)
  • Prairie Primer, using How Nature Works, How Science Works, How the Earth Works as our main science supplements
  • Painless Grammar
  • Life of Fred as well as Math Essentials (We have loved this program)
  • Finish up Keyboarding
  • Review Items
  • Rosetta Stone French when time allows
  • Co-op classes, sewing and The Art of Argument

Tommy, age 13

As you can see I am trying not to put to much pressure on the kids this year as far as curriculum goes.  I am really looking forward to a more organic learning environment after using K12 last year.  I am also going to make a much bigger effort to do a family read aloud more often.  We have begun reading The Hardy Boys series this Summer and have really enjoyed the time together.

Sounds like you've done a good job making selections. I use rosetta stone myself for spanish and it's great fun!

Great line up! The Art of Argument is EXCELLENT. We will be using Rosetta Stone this year too- for Russian!

I love reading about the choices others have made or are making! Thank you for sharing. I will need to check out five in a row.

The Prarie Primer has always intrigued but I just can't give up my Sonlight. I'll look forward to reading about how it goes for you this year.
