This past weekend was our local homeschool convention. I love going and cruising the books and curriculum. I would prefer to buy books over clothes and food :o). The number of curriculum choices is staggering. It really is about finding what works for your particular family and child. My biggest struggle this up coming year has been science. I pretty much have settled on what we are using but as always it could change.
Grade 2 Year
First Language Lessons - year 2
Spelling Workout - Book B&C
Daily Language Review grade 2
Writing Poetry by Evan Moore
Cursive (still not settled on what I am using)
Just Write (beginning writing program)
Jessica over at Trivium Academy created lesson plans for Earth Science and Space according to the WTM plus some. I love living books for science. Scroll down to "Lessons Plans" on her right sidebar. I was going to use Apologia Science but it felt too close to a textbook for me. I am not ready for that with my 7 year old yet. We might use Apologia next year. I love the exploration and wonder of God's creation in science. My dd is fascinated with this too and I want to be able to pursue interest in the area of science. We will use Jessica's lesson plans as they suite us. So grateful for all her hard work and generosity to share them.
We will be using Story of the World Vol. 2 The Middles Ages. We will be reading the History Lives Chronicles along with it. I am also using The 100 Most Important Events in Church History and may throw in the Veritas Press Cards. Very much looking forward to this year of history. My daughter and I both love to curl up with SOTW with a cup of tea to read and color. My 3 year old is sleeping of course ;o).These will be fond memories for years to come.
I will also be doing some Canadian Studies over the summer.
Singapore 2A and 2B (already into this)
Horizons 2 as supplement.
Music For Young Children/ Piano (level 2)
I feel like I am forgetting something. I bought some really great books to read together and individually this year. Will share those later.
