We started out in a very Charlotte Mason type manner, in which you teach using literature and nature. As the kids got older we transitioned from that methodology to a more Classical manner in which uses literature as a base for science and history, but it has a bit more structure when it comes to other subjects.
C. is a very inquisitive and curious little girl who is determined to do work. She is self motivated and often found working early in the morning among a stack of workbooks. This year she will be working on:
Saxon Math K and 1- she is almost done with the K so we will finish that up before beginning 1.
Primary Phonics Book 3 and 4 with supplemental stories
Spelling Workout 1- I don't know where she gets her love of spelling
This year C. is also going to take ballet, tap, and possibly tae kwon do
W. is growing up fast! he is becoming a bit reluctant to do work that is not his idea he instead prefers to spend his time drawing cartoons and reading the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. He will be working on:
Saxon Math 3
Primary Phonics book 6- We're almost done with the series!
Spelling Workout 2
This year W. is also going to take tae kwon do and continue his therapies to help his body develop
And in case this list looks skimpy, we are doing the following subjects together:
Song School Latin- A very basic introduction to Latin
Science Explorer club (hopefully if it all works out!) and unit studies for Earth Science and Astronomy
The Story of the World Volume 2: The Middle Ages
-supplemental books including Beowulf (any suggestions on a child's version?) Augustine, and Vikings
