A peek into our homeschool year:
LW 7th grade – Challenge A at Classical Conversations. LW is drawing the world free-hand from memory, labeling all countries and capitals, as well as many geographic features; reading 10 “classic” books and writing a paper for each one; reading 2 apologetics books and learning how to defend her faith; writing a science paper each week about covering differing topics in the plant and animal world; learning pre-Algebra; oh, and learning Latin. This is her fourth week, and she is enjoying it. Lots of work and very time-consuming, but she is a bright girl and is doing well!
LV 4th grade – Classical Conversations Foundations & Essentials, Singapore math 5A, Pathway readers, Spelling Power (though I’m not sure how necessary it is when he tests into the 8th grade at age 9), My Father’s World 1850-Modern, and Latina Christiana (thought I’d start him a little early and hopefully give him a little bit of an edge when he gets to Challenge).
LM 2nd grade – My Father’s World 1850-Modern, All About Spelling Level 2, Singapore 1B, and Explode the Code, Primary Language Lessons. She is a school-phenom, gets all her work done at the speed of light!
LD Kindergarten – I can tell he’s going to be another LV. He’s starting to sound out words already. Just picking it up so quickly. Also doing Life of Fred Book A (the jury is still out on that one), and Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons (my favorite learn-to-read guide!).
LB PreK 3 – Heart of Dakota Little Hands to Heaven. Can I tell you that I LOVE this program? I really LOVE it. I love the alphabet poems, the dramatic play, the Bible, devotions and Singing Bible. I LOVE whole thing. Wish I would have found this for my other children when they were in preschool.
LC – hanging out and nursing 101. Seems pretty good at it so far!
