Homeschool Planning 2013-2014 Part III: Curriculum

I sat down the other day and planned out the boys’ course of study for the new school year.  It was surprisingly easier this time around.  I even managed to order the necessary supplies off Amazon and they have already arrived.  Part of me is really pleased with how well things are going so far…part of me is afraid, very afraid.  ;)

Ds3 12yo 7th grade

Math  Abeka Basic Math, work on multiplication with 5x5 does not equal 10
Language   Writing Skills book 2
Science  Tops Science units on electricity and chemistry to begin with
History  Complete Book of US History
Geography  continue Trail Guide to World Geography
Nature  The Nature Connection
Reading  various classic books

Ds4 8yo 3rd grade

Math  Abeka work on basic skills with 2 plus 2 does not equal 5
Language  Writing Skills book A, continue Explode the Code series
for all the other subjects ds4 will follow along with ds3

I have some PE, art and music courses that we have tried and dropped (or not even tried at all) that I’ll try once again to implement.  For whatever reason, those three subjects have never really taken hold in our schedule.  Maybe this is the year…
