Our 2014-2015 Curriculum

Another year is about to begin. This year I feel a bit out of sync with school. We are in the midst of moving and I feel very unorganized without a classroom and being at the in-laws until we get into our new home. We are not even going to be on a full schedule for a month or so.

Usually, I am pretty consistent every year. All those reviews have made me step out of my comfort zone!


Here's a look at our 2015-2016 curriculum:

  Bug will be starting 7th grade this year!

Language Arts:

Christian Light Education Language Arts.

Reading:

Pathway Readers looked like it might be a good fit for my struggling reader.

Handwriting:

Rod and Staff Penmanship for Christin Writing grade 3 which we should finish up here shortly and then we will switch over to New American Cursive. You can see my review from the TOS Crew here.

Spelling:

All About Spelling we are going to review and go back a bit as she has regressed in spelling a lot due to seizure activity. I am not sure which level we are going to start with yet. I

Phonics: 

This is a integrated into the Essentials: Logic of English and All About Spelling. If needed I will add on some other programs we have on hand.

All of the above subjects we are going to do some online subscriptions like Learning Palette, Essential Skills Advantage, and other manipaltives.  

Math:

This has been a hard one for me with my child with severe learning disabilities. She has a good grasp of the basics like addition, subtraction, basic multiplication, and some other concepts. We hit a large boulder in some areas a while back.

We are going to finish up Christian Light Education Math 3. this 3x's a week with her. Then she will do Teaching Textbooks 3 with her

We will enjoy our online subscriptions like CTC Math, and Ubersmart software, and manipulatives.

My sweet little Bug is always a challenge as I never know what the year will bring for her. She keeps me on my toes and on my knees praying for wisdom.

Little Man is in 4th grade.

Language Arts:

Bob Jones Writing and Grammar.

IEW Student Intensive A. You can see my review here from the TOS Crew Review.

Reading: 

My son use to love to read but, lately he is too busy with exploring and adventures that he doesn't want to take the time to SIT and read without me reminding him(begging) to do so. 

Christian Light Education's Reading 4. Not to mention a whole host of boy's books that I picked up this year for him.

We are going to finish up Cursive Logic and then go to the next level of New American Cursive.
