Our Curriculum Choices 2015-2016

I've had a few people ask me what we choose for our curriculum, so I thought I'd share what we're doing this year.  We are finishing up week 4, and so far it's fantastic.  Every year I create our schedule and tweak it over the first couple of weeks until we find what works, but more on that later.

Pess (Ava) 1st Grade



I can't believe she's in 1st grade this year.  That's crazy.  She's so excited about the fact that this year she gets tests.  Go figure.  Strange child.  She's already taken 3 and made a 100% on them all.


Goose (Gavin) 4th Grade


This dude is definitely getting too big.  He is so incredibly smart.  Against my judgement, we moved him up a grade a few years ago, and now he is thriving and still ahead of the curve.  He started 4th grade this year, and he's loving it.

Big Man (Bryson) 6th Grade



It blows me away that I now have a child in middle school.  I can't believe how much he's grown and that we've been homeschooling this long.  Not to sound like everyone else, but time sure does fly.  Big Man understood that this year he would be taking on a larger workload so he said, "Mom, I'm ready!"


We also have Journal Writing before lunch and 20 minutes of private reading time everyday.  I feel like I'm missing something, but here it is.  I know it sounds like a lot, but it's not.  Let me know if you guys have any questions.  All for now.
