It never ceases to amaze me how quickly summer rolls past. I barely unearth my cache of sunscreen, and suddenly July arrives, and I find myself ordering curriculum.
This year will be a little different for us, as we’ve decided to enroll Noah and Fiona (10th and 9th grades) in a few online classes. We didn’t want to do a full cyber option, as that would not leave room for our co-op classes, which we are not willing to give up. After extensively searching and reading reviews, we decided to go with Time4Learning. There they will each take a Math, Social Studies, English, and Health class. The only potential drawback is that there are no live teachers for them to consult, which could be a problem in Math. The other classes they will be taking are at our co-op: Spanish 1, Forensic Science, Film Studies, Photography (Fiona) and History of the American Superhero (Noah)
Silas and Judah will also be taking classes at co-op. For Judah: Earch Science, Speach and Presentation, Spy Class, Survival, and Lego. Sy: Earth Science, Intro to Writing, Speech and Presentation, and probably Spy and Survival classes.
You all know how much I’ve enjoyed using My Father’s World, but last year we finished with the final year of history, and I felt it was time for something fresh and new. A friend recommended Geography Matters, and we are going to try it..
This curriculum will include Geography, History, Social Studies, Art, and Writing. Some of the materials are:
For math, Sy and Judah will still be using Teaching Textbooks, which we have found meets our needs well.
Now, I just need to get it all organized and ready for our start date of August 25th. What curriculum are YOU using this year?
