I have homeschooled since 2005.
It’s been a wild journey and I have learned so much about myself as a mom and teacher over the years.
Here’s how I plan a homeschool year.
You can scroll through all the curricula we’ve used over the years for various levels.
This year, I’m only homeschooling 3 kids!
We’re still finishing up some maths, science, and history…but we should have about a month off from academics. We typically school year round with lots of breaks for holidays, resting, and travel.
My eldest is dual enrolled at a local university, and has all but completed her high school work of French and history.
We’ll take local weekly art classes again since we love the teacher.
My middle girls are 11 and 12 years old. We don’t really do grade levels, but I guess they’re in about 7th.
Katie is trying soccer again.
Tori loves being outdoors and walks, runs, bikes, rollerblades all the time.
This year, they’re studying:
- Beauty in the Heart Bible study
- Spelling Workout Level H
- New Elementary Maths 1
- Apologia Physical Science and notebook
My son is 8 years old. He is in about 4th grade.
Alex loves baseball and will play fall ball and spring league again this year.
He is studying:
Apologia Chemistry and Physics to coincide with his sisters’ physical science.
A winter Astronomy Unit
- Stargazer’s Guide
- Apologia Astronomy and notebook
- The Astronomy Book
- various library books
Some of this curriculum is no longer printed or has updated to new editions. I’ve had these books for years and if it ain’t broke…
