Our 2011-2012 Curriculum

Woohoo! It is almost time for "Back to Homeschool" in our household. We always begin the day after Labor Day, so that day is almost here. I worked hard today to get our curriculum sorted out and organized, I accomplished that goal! 

I really enjoy having the boys so close in age as it makes it really easy to combine some of their subjects and have them work from the same level/book  as we will be doing with some things! Nathan is a Struggling Learner and we found last year that is because he has a Vision Issue. He just got new bi-focals a couple months ago and they seem to be helping. He is doing some of the same level work as Danny due to his Vision Issue, but I am very happy with where he is at and I know he will do fine!  

Soooooo without further stalling... Our Curriculum for 2011-2012 Homeschool Year are:

All the boys:
We will also be using WonderMaps by Bright Ideas Press for our map resource and work. 
Bible: Illuminations provides bible reading. We will use the reading from there to begin. I may use something different down the line. The boys will also have AWANA verses to be memorizing.  
Handwriting: Getty Dubay Italic

The boys Curriculum

Language Arts: Scheduled through Illuminations Year 1 by Bright Ideas Press
SpellingNatural Speller provided through the Illuminations Year 1 by Bright Ideas Press and also Spelling City
English: Easy Grammar 3  when we finish this we will move onto Easy Grammar 4
Math: Horizons Math 3 when we finish this we will move onto Horizons Math 4

Joshua's Books

Nathan and Daniel: 
Reading: Once I get Nathan and Danny reading better I will purchase and use: Pathway Readers

Nathan and Daniel's Books
We will also be doing a 50 States Study, which I will talk about in a separate blog post in the very near future, as I have many resources and ideas, that it deserves it's own post. I will also be posting our "Daily Schedule" in a couple of days.

Here are some more pics of the boys Curriculum and how it is organized:

Storage Area

I have "ebooks" and internet resources that I will add in as we go along. 

We will be using Notebooking and Lapbooking and I will post about those resources and how we will use them in a few days. 

We are very excited about our Homeschool Year and all our curriculum! I am looking forward to sharing our year as we go along!!
