Fall Bucket List {Free Printable}

Hi Guys!!

Today is officially the first day of Fall!!

I love Fall most of all.

One of my favorite fall quotes is “Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.” – unknown.

I love apple picking, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, drinking apple cider, all the things…

So i thought it would be fun to create a bucket list to keep track of them all.

Homeschool Curriculum Picks {2018/2019}

Hi Guys!

Today i’m going to share with you all of our curriculum choices for each kid this year.

Cruz (Preschool/ 4 years old)

IMG_4390

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)

IMG_4386

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)

IMG_4387

Math: Math-U-See Epsilon

English: BJU Press English 5

Vocabulary: Wordly Wise 3000 Book 5

History: Abeka Book Old World History & Geography 

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)

IMG_4388

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…

Each kid is also doing some form of Spanish class. Some do it on the computer, phone app, and others do worksheets.

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!
