2011-2012 Curriculum

I always post our intended curriculum on my blog for anyone who might be interested (these things always interest me when others post them, and it is an easy way for me to look back and see what we did on a particular year). I realized last week that I hadn't taken the time to do so. It isn't too late, so here it is!


Intermediate Language Lessons (This encompasses grammar, writing, poetry, literature, speaking and more!)
Teaching Textbooks Math 5
Various Chapter books from library and personal resources
Bastien Piano Level 2


Explode the Code 3 and 4
Pathway Readers
Sonlight Readers (after we finish the Pathway)
Math-U-See Beta (after we finish a few units in Alpha)
Memoria Press Copy Books 1 and 2
Bastien Piano Primer Level


Answers in Genesis God's Design for Life (Animals, Human Body, Plants)
Victor Journey Through the Bible
Bible: New International Reader's Version
Homeschool in the Woods New Testament Lapbook (possibly in the winter/spring)
Homeschool in the Woods Civil War Study
Five in a Row, which is really for Ava, but Lukas always sticks around for it and sometimes helps with the teaching and reading 
Artistic Pursuits

After we complete the Civil War study, I'm not sure what we're going to do after that, but, at this point, I'm leaning toward spending some time on Ohio history. I don't have a curriculum for that yet, so I have research to do before making a definitive decision, but we've got a while before that matters anyway. We're also doing regular journals using some prompts I found on-line and a nutrition program that I found on-line as well.

If you post your curriculum on your blog, leave me a comment so I can come and see what you're using!

  1. I wrote about our curriculum choices here: http://tinahollenbeck.blogspot.com/2011/07/do-over-new-start-of-our-new-academic.html. Since I wrote, there have been a couple of changes: 1. We're not going to use WriteShop, but will, instead, either begin IEW or just continue with CM-style narrations for now and begin IEW next year; 2. I bought a devotional Bible from Secret Keeper Girls the other day so we're using that as our primary devotional at the moment; 3. I'll be changing the math I do with my little daycare girl (going to The Complete Book of Math for Grades 1-2 soon).
