2017-2018 9th Grade Curriculum Choices| Hands On Learning

**This post contains affiliate links.**

Here are the remainder of our 9th grade curriculum choices.  You can click on the links or pictures for more information or to purchase.  Here is a video with a little sneak peak into some!

For Algebra 1, we are sticking with Teaching Textbooks.

For this year's science choice, we decided to go with Exploring Education Advanced Physical Science which is a new curriculum to us and we love the hands on experiments it includes.  I really loved the fact that it comes with most of the supplies!

For English I credit, we are continuing with Logic of English, adding in another new curriculum in writing, Essentials In Writing - Level 9, and she will be reading through the Anne of Greene Gables Series.

To aid in making history a little more hands on we have decided to add this supplemental CD which includes printable challenge (review) cards, notebooking pages, coloring sheets, and lapbook accessories. Sarah loves to craft and color.  These sheets are very detail oriented and not your typical elementary age coloring sheet which is so perfect for her!

We're putting together our own Home Economics course using the subscription boxes from Raddish Kids.  We will be counting hours to obtain this credit and I'm adding in a few extras to go along with it such as budgeting for her ingredient list.  

She is working on Spanish using the free online program from Duolingo

Check out our Bible, History, Read Alouds, and Geography choices here.

Looking forward to a fun year!

2017-2018 Homeschool High School Curriculum Choices | 9th & 11th Grades | Bible, History, Geography, & Read Alouds

**This post does contain affiliate links**

Finally, I am going to share with you our choices for the 2017-2018 school year.  We have 2 high schoolers this year - one in 9th, and one in 11th.  We have decided to work together in the subjects of History, Bible, & Geography so I'll start there.

We are studying Ancient History this year and chose Mystery of History Volume 1 - Creation to the Resurrection to be our main spine.  It has some map work in it as well so we picked up a few atlases to go along with it.  (click on the pictures to purchase or see more)


We are also using Simply Charlotte Mason's one year course in Ancient History, Genesis through Deuteronomy & Ancient Egypt to complement our history studies and as our main Bible spine.  Geography will be pulled from both of these books as well as a few atlases and living books listed below.




For read alouds this year, I chose some from both Mystery of History and Genesis through Deuteronomy & Ancient Egypt.  Here is what I chose:




Coming up soon...9th grade individual choices and 11th grade individual choices!
