The 2013-2014 school year is off to a rockin' start!!
We are starting our fifth week of school and the kids are doing great and having fun with our new curriculum. I completely jumped out of our homeschooling boat and switched up just about everything that we do for school. And I can truly say that I couldn't be happier. Here's our line up:
BJU Fundamentals of Math 7
BJU Life of Christ
BJU World Studies
Apologia Human Anatomy (1st sem) and Physcial Science (2nd sem)
Literature ~ I am creating this as we go
Cover Story for Grammar and Creative Writing
Culinary Basics ~ created by me as we go
BJU Math 3
BJU English 2
A Beka Health, Manners and Safety 2
Apologia Swimming Creatures
A Beka Our America Social Studies (as well as various unit studies)
Five in a Row
A Beka Kindergarten Learning to Read
Lots of lapbooking
A Beka K5 Math
A couple of classes we haven't started yet because we are doing co-op classes starting in September, so I have been doing unit studies for Social Studies and Science with Sam. We finished up our Twisters! study and this week and next we will be doing Knights and Castles for Social Studies and Honey Bees for Science.
We are having a lot of fun, enjoying learning. It's been a couple of years since we were really, deeply excited about a new school year because we were all bored with our curriculum. Now we are approaching this year with great joy and flexibility. It's grand!
I will be blogging a lot more this year and documenting our journey with pictures! Happy Monday everyone!
