Monday is the beginning of the new school year. We will be exploring education from home. Boo is in 6th grade now, and Bear is in 4th. As I looked through the myriad of books and curriculum I realized this is going to be our biggest adventure yet. I will need these darling girls to put aside their differences and work together to keep this home running. The curriculum choices I decided on are:
- Apologia Science (Zoology...Land Animals) ~ I intend to get zoo passes to make the most of this
- Mystery of History ~ I am starting at the beginning. One book a year...
- Grammar 4 & 6 by Saxon
- Wordly Wise 4 & 6 for vocabulary
- Aleks for Math
- We will choose a language and use Rosetta Stone for that as well
I am very excited about this, and the girls are as well. I get to work from home, I get to be with the kids, and maybe, just maybe, we can get control of Bear's anxiety issues.
I will post home school updates as we go, but this will not become a home school idea blog. Once my new contributor gets her page up and running, I will post it and you can venture there for all your home school needs.
