Let's start with the Middle Schoolers - Stephen, age 13 and Sarah, age 11 (almost) and the subjects they will be using together.
Bible, History, Science, Art, Music, and Read Alouds
Sarah will use this science but Stephen will be using something different (see below). Our main curriculum is My Father's World and this year we will be using Exploration To 1850. Yay, American History is my favorite!
MFW uses God and the History of Art and that usually is the first thing we drop so I'm still looking for something simple. We may just search YouTube videos and spend time drawing from there. I also have the Classical Conversations Prescripts Books that we can use for some Art as well. Seriously thinking about the Draw and Write Through History series.
Science For Stephen
Apologia General Science using MFW Lesson Plans
Also, we will be using Analytical Grammar (AG) and Beyond The Book Report (BBR) together as well.
We really liked AG last year and found that BBR was the perfect fit to complement it when we received it for a review. We be working in Season 2 for both books. Sarah may need to go back for review of Season 1 but we will see. I plan to add in daily grammar sheets for more punctuation and capitalization review as well.
For the 1st semester, we will be finishing up books that we didn't finish last year.
Sarah - Little House Series
Stephen - Narnia Series
Not sure what they want to read after but we will use BBR with whatever they choose.
Sarah - Teaching Textbooks Math 6
Stephen - Teaching Textbooks PreAlgebra
Both - IEW Student Intensive B - We will use this the 2nd part of the year. We are breaking up the lessons over several years.
I think that's all! We are easing back into routine as of yesterday. Today, we had sickness hit already but we still accomplished a little. :)
Happy Back To Homeschool!
