"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 Part 2

Finally, I am sharing what I am using this year for my girls!  Here is what we are doing:

Annamarie (8th grade):

Bible:  Reading through the New Testament, weekly memory verses, and required book reading.  This year she is reading Before You Meet Prince Charming, So Much More, Joyfully at Home, and Raising Maidens of Virtue.

Math: Teaching Textbooks Math 7

Language:  Online writing class through Time 4 Writing, then after that we will use Wordsmith for writing; Wordly Wise 8 for Vocabulary.  We're taking a year off of formal grammar, but grammar will be covered in the writing courses.

History:  Truthquest Ancient Egypt/Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome, Map Skills Workbook

Science: Apologia Zoology 2: Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day.  I know it's technically an elementary book, but I've found these books to be quite advanced.  I myself am learning sooooo much and find them so interesting and fun!  She'll be doing the notebooking journal with it, along with extra projects I assign, and a frog hatchery kit with her sister.

Critical Thinking:  Building Thinking Skills software

Foreign Language: French 1 through Rosetta Stone online

Music: Flute and Piano lessons: Flute with instructional DVD, and Piano with Adventus Piano Suite Premiere

Art:  She is hoping to take a cake decorating class.

Abigail (3rd grade):

Bible:  She is hoping to return to our local Awana program, but as of now we are still waiting for a leader to step up.  Right now, we are using our Keys for Kids devotionals that we get from our church.  She is also assigned a memory verse or two each week, always from her handwriting books, and sometimes from church.

Math:  Teaching Textbooks Math 3

Language: Alpha Omega Language 3 LIFEPACS, Wordly Wise 3, and A Reason For Handwriting Transition, Typing Instructor

History:  Truthquest American History for Young Students 2, Map Skills 3 workbook

Science:  Apologia Zoology 2 like her sister, along with the notebooking journal and frog hatchery kit.

Critical Thinking:  Building Thinking Skills software

Music: Piano using Adventus Piano Suite Premiere

PE: Gymnastics

Art: Drawing class

I also have a list of read alouds that I would like to get through.

I must say that if you were to do all that I am doing, it would get veeerrryyy expensive!  I have been very blessed to be able to do all of this, and have it funded for me.  My parents pay for all of the Christian curriculum, and everything else--including gymnastics, art class, etc--is funded by the school district.  I am very grateful for this!
