I'm excited that we're continuing with Sonlight this year for Bible, History/Geography and read-alouds. The boys and I are excited to start filling in their Timeline Book with the Biblical and Historical figures we'll be learning about together. I decided not to purchase all of the read-aloud books but that we would find those at our local library. The boys and I really enjoy our trips to the library and this not only saves us money but space on our already full book shelves.
The boys are going to continue their Language Arts (Explode the Code) and Math (Horizons) at their own levels.
Nathan is only 4 1/2 but he is ready for Kindergarten so this year we will have a Kindergartener, First grader and toddler.
I debated for a long time whether Nathan would be considered in Kinder or Pre-K but he has demonstrated time and time again the past few months that he is ready for Kinder. I never thought my boys that are 2 1/2 years apart in age would only be a year apart academically but we are using homeschooling to our advantage and going at their own pace :)
I had originally planned on using Sonlight Science but then discovered the Magic School Bus Young Scientists Club for half off and since the boys LOVE Magic School Bus, and receiving mail, I decided to go with that for our Science curriculum this year. So far it's been a big hit! I'm sure next year we'll have plenty of Science fun with Sonlight's living books and experiments.
Last year, in our Sonlight curriculum, there was an Art book with beautiful pictures we would discuss once or twice a week, this year I decided to go with ARTistic Pursuits.
In addition to the subjects we'll be learning together at home the boys will continue to memorize their verses in Awanas on Wednesday nights, Community Bible Study on Thursday mornings and subjects with their friends in our co-op on Fridays.
A lot of fun times ahead :) What is your favorite curriculum?
