Curriculum Choices for 2017-2018

Friday, July 21, 2017

A new year has started and this is the time to see if all the new curriculum choices I've been researching for months will actually be a good fit for our family.  It's funny because I feel like this is our first real year of homeschooling.  I've been homeschooling for 9 years now!  I'm excited about our new history & science curriculum's this year.  These two subjects I have felt like we needed to add a little more substance to and I think our new program will help with that.  I'm looking forward to seeing how much the boys accomplish this year and what goals we will end up meeting.  Here is what I have chosen for this year.

Greyson is in Grade 7 & Lincoln is in Grade 5
Both of the boys work on the same level for each subject except math.

Daily Virtues & Manners

We choose Virtues

365 Manners Kids Should Know

History, Language Arts, Poetry, & Art

Build Your Library

We will be using the grade 5 curriculum with both boys.  I love that this curriculum can be used with multiple age children.  We started with this grade because I felt that if we skipped, there was just too much history we would miss out on.  We will cover from the first Americans to the Civil War in history this year.

We will be studying american Artists and American poets, such as Emily Dickinson & Robert Frost.

Language arts will be reading an amazing selection of books.  I'm excited for this part!
