Last year was a crazy year. I was teaching high school English at local private school, Noodle was enrolled there full time from Feb - May while we took a break from homeschooling. It was what we both needed at the time. We have taken most of the summer off and now we are ready to start our new routine. I will be working M-F part time at a new private school and Noodle will take PE, Reading and Math during the hours I am working. We will both head home at noon, have lunch and finish the rest of our homeschool day. I am praying this schedule works out well for us. We will not be participating in co-op this year, which seems really weird, but with my work schedule we just can't do it.
Here is a quick rundown of Noodle's curriculum this year:
Bible - God's Great Covenant from Classical Academic Press
Latin- First Form Latin from Memoria Press
Math- Saxon 6/5 at the school
Grammar - We are going to finish up all the part way finished stuff we have so in this order BJU Grammar, CLE (3 books left) and First Language Lessons Level 3. If those all get finished before May we will move on to Rod and Staff English.
Writing- Writing Aids from TOG and lots of outlining ala The Well Trained Mind
Spelling - Rod and Staff 6
Vocabulary- Wordly Wise 6
Reading- TOG Lit at the school
History- Abeka and TOG (I know that sounds weird) Noodle is a textbook learner much to my disappointment. So, I am going to try to combine the TOG that I love with his textbook style learning that he thrives on. UGH! We shall see how that goes!
Geography- TOG and Steck Vaugh Grade 6 Map Skills
Science- Abeka Science 6 as the spine and the Apologia Elementary books for extra reading and projects.
Health- Abeka Health 5
Art- Artistic Pursuits Elementary book
Music- composer studies
Logic- Fallacy Detective
I am going to really try to commit to blogging once a week, mostly focused on our homeschool. However, since I have gotten healthy and am very passionate about health issues, I can't promise I won't throw some of that in the mix!
Here's to a great school year!!
