Homeschooling 2012/2013

This year I have put in more time planning than any other year. I have struggled the past couple years with preparing for the school year due to my lack of planning. This year I wanted to be different. I wanted to start strong so my kids start strong. I did a lot of research and found the curriculum that I think best fits our family.

Here is what we are studying this year.

Third Grade -
Bible - Who Is God? - He will be using the notebooking journal.
Grammar - Easy Grammar 3
Reading - Explode the Code books as well as he will read 2 chapters minimally each day.
Math - Saxon 3
History - Mystery of History I
Geography - A Child's Geography
Science - Exploring Creation with Astronomy - He will be using the notebooking journal.
Spelling - Sequential Spelling I

Second Grade -
Bible - Who Is God? - She will also be using the notebooking journal.
Grammar - Easy Grammar 2
Reading - Explode the Code and Reading Eggs program
Math - Saxon Math 2
History - Mystery of History I
Geography - A Child's Geography
Science - Exploring Creation with Astronomy. - She will be using a lapbook I purchased through A Journey Through Learning.

Kindergarten - Twins
Bible - Who Is God? - They will be using the coloring book offered.
Reading - Explode the Code and Reading Eggs program
Math - Saxon Math K & 1
History - Mystery of History I
Geography - A Child's Geography
Science - Exploring Creation with Astronomy. They will also be using a lapbook.

They will each have independent time for some of their schoolwork. We will be doing Science, History, Geography, and Bible together. These subjects will be done once or twice a week with the exception of Bible, which we will study every day.

It looks like a lot, but I can honestly say this is the first year I do not feel overwhelmed. I am excited to see what God has in store for us this homeschooling year.

    1. Thank you! This is the first year that I feel comfortable with what we are studying. I was so overwhelmed the first couple years that I didn't know which way I was going. I hope you have a very bless and productive year too!
