2014-2015 Curriculum {4th/5th & K/1st}

CurricChoicesI cannot believe that summer is almost over! This year we decide to take the summer off. There was just so much going on, including my moms 70th, my grandfather’s 98th {and subsequent illness that has us waiting to get the call that he has gone to be with the Lord} The biggest reason we decided to take off the summer is because of my husbands summer term {I mentioned in the past he is currently working towards his Bachelors/MBA} We wanted to make sure we got as much family time as possible before the Fall/Winter semester starts for him {next week} Ahhh I digress…lets talk Curriculum!

We are really excited for the 2014/2015 School year to begin! As always I’ve selected a very eclectic homeschool Curriculum {meaning I don’t strictly do a curriculum in a box, Classical, or  Charlotte Mason. I fall in the category of, well…eclectic!} If I told you that all of our school curriculum has been selected and we know exactly what we’re going to do for every single subject, well…I would be lying to you. The reason being that I’m still trying to decide between a couple different things, so look for a more in-depth ‘curriculum by grade’ post in September!

All Together {as a Family}:

Our family is very spoiled, my husband’s office is downstairs! He works from home 100% of the time, which means that he is very involved with our children’s homeschooling!

My husband and I want to instill faith, humility, honor and character in our children. Here are some of the resources we will be using to accomplish this:

Along with all of our Bible time together we will also together do:

4th/5th Grade: {Boy}

As usual Elias will be participating in our  Thursday ‘co-op’ throughout the school year! Classes he will be taking include Archery, Pottery, Leatherworking, Woodworking & Theater!

*Please note Elias is doing a mixture of 4th & 5th grade this year to ensure he is working at his level for him! These are all the ‘main’ books for the subjects we have a many ‘filler’ resources. I’m planning to having a large post coming up in late September about some of my favorite resources.

Kindergarten/1st: {Boy & Girl}

I would really like to find a local “school age” play group. I’m not interest in a co-op for the twins. We shall see what happens.

* Please note that the twins will be working at their paces, so if they don’t accomplish anything in for ‘first grade’ that’s absolutely okay! If they’re anything like their brother they were all in excel in certain subjects, I just wanted to be prepared.

My husband and I also have some really fun family field trips and activities planned for the school year!
