Thanks to the good folks at Heart of the Matter for hosting Not Back To School Blog Hop. This always helps me organize my thoughts and plans.
So here we go……………….
We are introducing new math, grammar, spelling and History program this year. Also we are going to start to focus on more home education and a little less roadschooling.
This is our planned curriculum for homeschool for 2010-2011 2nd/3rd Grade Years:
Core: Five In A Row
Our primary curriculum will be Five In A Row Volume 4. I wanted to move to Winter’s Promise for a theme program because I simply didn’t have time to plan, print and organize FIAR this year. But after going to the local homeschool conference I realized that FIAR can work for us just modified. In the seminar about gifted children the speaker did warn changing everything from year to year. After the BIG MOVE last year where his whole world changed, I think we need to limit the amount of changes this year.
After much prayer we thought it best to leave the spine of FIAR but altered it to fit our needs. FIAR has a bible curriculum which I will be using and adding lapbook elements for scripture.
Introducing Grammar with Winter’s Promise Language Arts curriculum and living books from the series “If you were” .
We are excited to start Right Start Math this year. The box arrived last week and we can’t wait to get our hands on the manipulatives.
This will be our first year of formal history study using the Story of The World program Volume I, Ancient Times. It covers history from the First Nomads, Egypt, the Jewish People, Abraham and Joseph, Hammurabi and the Babylonians, the Assyrians, Ancient China, Ancient Africa, Exodus, the Phoenicians, the Greeks and Rome.
We are enrolled in a Homeschool Physical Education co-op class, basketball class, swimming and martial arts.
We are enrolled in a local co-op class and visiting museum exhibits throughout the year.
We are enrolled in a local co-op class and taking part of in free concert/play venues in the area. The search is still on for individual instruction but we do have an at home drum program.
We are enrolled in a accelerated local co-op class and visiting museum exhibits throughout the year.
I am so excited!!!!!!
