"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Our Homeschool Curriculum 2011-2012

I'd like to share what we're doing for homeschooling this year!  I'll do it one child at a time each day, starting with the oldest.

Andrew is 16.  He is basically doing 11th/12th grade simultaneously this year.  He's been working really hard to complete 4 years of high school in 3 years.  That is one of the joys of homeschooling--being able to do that.  So if his list looks LONG....that is why!

Bible--Switched on Schoolhouse: 12th grade Christian Faith and Living, Vision Forum's "Defending the Christian Worldview", the book "In His Steps"

Algebra--Teaching Textbooks (math is not his strong suit, and we are not making a big deal about it.  The line of work he is going into does not require high levels of math.)

Language Arts--online writing classes through Time4writing.com.  He'll take Essay Writing, and then Essay Writing for the SAT.  Wordly Wise 11 and 12 for Vocabulary.

History--Truthquest History Age of Revolution III

American Government (1st semester)--Alpha Omega Lifepacs

Economics (2nd semester)--Alpha Omega Lifepacs, "What Ever Happened to Penny Candy?"

Spanish--Rosetta Stone online: he has half of Spanish 2 to finish (he would have finished this summer but we ended up with computer issues), then he'll go onto Spanish 3 and 4.

Flash Animation: online class

Biology:  Alpha Omega Switched on Schoolhouse:  He has the second half of this to finish.

Health:  Abeka

That's it for Andrew!  He's excited to finish up.  We're going to do a graduation ceremony through our local homeschool organization.  He's excited to go to the local college and get into radio broadcasting.

I'll share more tomorrow....

    I can't post comments on most blogs when I'm signed in..sheesh!

    Looks great, April! We are getting prepared here, too!

    God Bless!

  2. Wow, this looks great April! Was wondering how you guys liked Truthquest? Have thought about using that when my oldest gets in high school if not sooner, it seems like a very flexible curriculum...like a book list with ideas for how to teach things? Am I right? Hope you have a blessed school year!
