Our curriculum for 2011-2012

With another school year beginning in the not so distant future, I thought I would share with all of you what we’re planning to us this school year.  My daughters will be in the 8th and 6th grades.

My 8th grader will be studying -  
Bible Study: Who Is God? This past school year I reviewed book 1 in the Who Is God series by Apologia. You may read it HERE.
I also have her working on a couple devotionals directed for girls only that I picked up at the local

Christian bookstore.   

Math: Teaching Textbooks. We’re starting out with Pre-Algebra, then moving on to Algebra. I also plan to use Khan Academy for further assistance when needed.       

English: Ace paces by School of Tomorrow

Etymology: Ace paces by School of Tomorrow

Science: Physical Science by Apologia. Chances are we’ll finish with Physical Science early in the year. If that happens then I plan to move her to Apologia Biology.   

History: Story of the World - Book 1

Health: Growing Healthy Homes - Nutrition 101: Choose Life.  This was another book I was chosen to review. You may read about it HERE.

Language Arts: Total Language Plus.  

My 6th Grader will be studying  

Bible Study:
Who Is God?  You may read my review HERE.

Teaching Textbooks. I’ll also be using Khan Academy for further assistance when needed.

Word Builder:

All About Spelling Book 2

We’ll be finishing up Exploring Creation with Astronomy by Apologia. When the book is completed then we’ll either move to some Ace Science Paces I have or move on into General Science by Apologia. I’ll have to wait and see how things go throughout the year.

History: Story of the World

Growing Healthy Homes - Nutrition 101: Choose Life.  You may read my review HERE. 

Language Arts and Creative Writing:
Ace Paces by School of Tomorrow. I also have a couple Total Language Plus books we may do as well.  
And of course we’ll also be working on the many products I’m chosen to review as part of The Old Schoolhouse Homeschool Crew.

Wordless Wednesday: Simplicity

This is my daughters, nieces, nephew, and sister in-law enjoying the water at sunset in Tampa, Florida. Although it was a short trip to Florida, we really enjoyed our time there.

The best part of the trip, Jeremiah is officially my brother in-law! Welcome to the family!

Be sure to check out some other Wordless Wednesday moments.
