The day will begin with Family Worship. We'll read a selection or sing a song using Hymns for a Kid's Heart. We'll read or recite a psalm. Then we'll all pray together.
Later in the day we'll use Sonlight's Core 3 Bible program to do a more systematic study. The older kids, ages 10 and 8, will keep a prayer journal and read the Bible on their own.
In the evening, I will read Egermeier's Bible Storybook to all.
American History will be studied this year, Sonlight-style! Look at all those books! We'll be marking events in our Book of Time and taking note of locations on our maps and globe.
We will be using Sonlight Core 3 for History, Literature, and Readers. My younger learners, ages 6 and 4, will be using Sonlight PreK 4/5.
Singapore Math is our math of choice for the third year running!! Imagine that! I know I'm not the only one to do the math shuffle! I am happy to say that we're feeling rather settled in math. My oldest will be using Everything's Coming Up Fractions and/or Key to Fractions to help her understand, you guessed it, fractions!
My 6 year old will also be using Miquon's Orange book along with her Singapore Math level 1A.
We're taking a whole new direction in science this year. God's Design for Life is our curriculum of choice, the Chemistry series. Ages 10, 8, and 6 will participate. We've always done Sonlight for science, so this should be a nice change of pace and focus.
Language Arts - nothing fancy here! The oldest two will both be using Sonlight Language Arts 3 (old version) with Sequential Spelling and Grammar Songs.
All three school age children will work in their own level of Handwriting Without Tears. Explode the Code books 1/2 and 5/6 will be completed by the 6 and 8 year olds. Hopefully...
Artistic Pursuits is our art curriculum of choice.We love the fun, simple lessons. I am hoping to get through two K-3 books this year. Or possibly get the next level for my oldest.
And finally, Spanish! We're going to try La Clase Divertida Level 1 for my ages 10, 8, 6, and 4. We've never studies Spanish beyond watching Dora the Explorer videos. so this should be interesting. I think the kids will love it!
The kids really want to study Latin, and I am itching to buy Latin for Children, but I think I may be overambitious thinking I can do it in addition to Spanish this year. We have Prima Latina, but we don't care too much for it.
So that's us this year. Now I MUST remember to revisit this thread next April and see if we're still on track!
