Okay I have been doing a lot of research and if you know me personally you know I am a research the heck out of something before I decide on it. Especially when it comes to homeschooling my children. The reason why I am already thinking about next year it is just the time of year I do this and buy things I will need for next school year that way it is spread out for a longer period of time instead of just buying all at once. So I have a few options I am thinking about right now. I am not sure the exact curriculum I will be using but I here are what I have narrowed them down too.
History- Will and VInny would be doing this together. Then Croix sitting in and taking in as much as he can at this age.
This is from Creek Edge Press. I have been wanting to do Ancient World history for the up coming school year. Then do a 4 or 5 year cycle starting with Ancient then moving to medieval and so on up to present day. This looks like a very neat way to do history. We would be using task cards. With these task card you use one pre week and do the list of things on them.
Science – This will be for all 3 again just like above.
So here again is from the same company and the same kind of style using the task cards.
Math – .
Croix will be finishing up his book he has started. There are actually 2 books to the set he is working on. He is is doing a first grade level book and about half way thru the first set
Will- This is wills book that I found at an antique store. I love these old books that I find here. This one was actually printed in 1934 and was owned by a district school here in Nebraska. I love thinking about how many kids learned using this book. I also love these older arithmetic books because they teach how to actually understand math not just do this because this is the formula. This book is actually for 3rd – 4th grades. But the level of this book is higher then most of the grade level books out there you buy now.
Croix- will be doing copy work and learning phonics using the McGuffey readers.
Will – Is going to start probably half way thru this book. Called New Language exercises. He will also be working thru the next McGuffey reader.
Vinny- Pinneo’s Primary Grammar THis book he will start somewhere in the middle also.
This is from Rod and staff. I really like this site.
Creation to the Greeks from My Fathers World for all 3 of the boys. I have been wanting to try this curriculum for quite some time now.
These 2 books are recommended by My fathers world.
These are my top 3 choices for the next year. I am kind of stuck with what to pick. I guess I could get my dear husbands input *smile*. Any ideas for you all what we should do? I am really wanting to find something affordable and that would not cause me extra stress because we will have a new baby in the house.
