We officially started back to school on July 29th. Our plan for this year is to do six weeks on and one week off. We will also be taking extra time off in December. This will have us finishing up our school year on May 16, 2014.
Emily is in 5th grade this year.
For her core curriculum we are using Trail Guide to Learning ~ Paths of Settlement.
We used Trail Guides to Learning Paths of Exploration last year and loved it so much that we are continuing on with the series.
No changes here for us this year. We are continuing on with Teaching Textbooks 5.
Emily’s core curriculum includes everything, but math. We decided Emily needed a little extra help with spelling and grammar. For spelling she is using Sequential Spelling 1.
Aiden is 1st grade this year. We will be using the following:
For Aiden this year I decided I needed to simplify and buy a curriculum that had it ALL laid out for me. We LOVE, love to read and our lessons have always been around books we are reading, so we decided to use Sonlight Core A with Readers.
This is another change, as we will be doing science everyday. We are using Sonlight’s Science A.
Whew! That’s everything.
