Today i’m going to share with you all of our curriculum choices for each kid this year.
Cruz (Preschool/ 4 years old)
I couldn’t just pick 1 curriculum to use with him this year, because there are so many good choices out there. So i’m doing a mix up of 4 different ones.
God’s Little Explorers – I used this in the past with Karina and we enjoyed it.
The Good and The Beautiful Pre-K Level (language arts) – This was super affordable ($15) and it’s much raved about in the homeschooling community. So we are excited to give it a go!
Confessions of a Homeschooler Letter of the week – I bought this years ago when i started my homeschooling journey and this will be my 3rd child i’ve used it with.
Encompass Preschool Curriculum – What really excites me about this one is the planned out field trip ideas and snacks to go with each week.
Karina (2nd grade/ 7 years old)
Math: Math-U-See Beta level
English: BJU Press English 2
Vocabulary: Wordly Wise 3000 Book 2
History: Abeka Book Our America
Science: ABeka Book Enjoying God’s World
Reading: All About Reading level 2
Language Arts & Literature: The Good and The Beautiful level K – This covers phonics/reading, spelling, grammar/punctuation, literature, and art.
Dasean (5th grade/ 10 years old)
Math: Math-U-See Epsilon
English: BJU Press English 5
Vocabulary: Wordly Wise 3000 Book 5
Science: Abeka Book Investigating God’s World
Language Arts & Literature: The Good and The Beautiful level 1-5 – This is a free curriculum!! And like i said above, it covers: phonics/reading, spelling, grammar/punctuation, literature, and art. I’m starting him on a very low level because he does need some extra help with spelling and i’m sure by the end of the year we will finish level 5.
Samuel (8th grade/ 13 years old)
Math: Math-U-See Algebra 1
English: BJU Press Writing & Grammar Grade 8
Vocabulary: Wordly Wise 3000 Book 8
History: Abeka Book America Land I love
Science: Abeka Book Earth and Space
Language Arts & Literature: The Good and The Beautiful level 2-7 – He also struggles with spelling, so i’m starting him low too and by the end of the year he will be where he needs to be at.
That’s all for their individual work…
The 3 oldest kids also do Typing Instructor for Kids on the computer.
They are all still learning piano.
So that’s everything, curriculum wise, we have going on this year. I hope you enjoyed hearing about our choices, and if you homeschool your kids, i’d love to hear what curriculum you are using this school year!
