This week for the Heart of the Matter Not Back to School Blog Hop, we are doing Curriculum Week. This will be fun. We start back to school this week (we school Tuesday through Friday with projects and make up work on Saturdays). So today we “officially” go back to school Yay! Currently, this is what is on the agenda for the year.
Our kids are 9 and 7. For the most part, they will be doing the same things. There will be some differences but not much.
I posted this without photos so had to go back and take some pictures. I am a visual person and I am sure many others are as well. If you are not visual, pass the pics and read below!
- Bible -
We use Doorposts Instructions in Righteousness.
Currently, we are also working through Building Christian Character.
- Math -
- Language Arts -
- Reading -
Plus various books throughout the year
- History -
- Science -
- Art -
Currently it will be whatever I come up with. Need to do a little more searching on some formal art. They love to craft though.
- Music -
Listening to classical music mostly. Would like to teach them both how to read music.
- PE -
Wii and Wii Fit during the cooler months
- Typing / Computer -
Still searching for a good typing program
Plan on setting Hannah (9yrs) up a blog so she can work on designing and writing online
So this is our curriculum for the year. We will also supplement with unit studies (download n Go as well) and lapbooks, etc. Also, we will be doing Co-Op at our church this Fall (meeting once a week for three hours to include two classes, formal PE, and lunchtime).
Thanks for reading! I’d love to hear what you think and would also love to know what you are doing in your school this year! Share away!!!
