I've got next years curriculum almost figured out! Can you believe it? I know, me neither. I really didn't have a problem with figuring out Science or History. I am going with CLE and Story of The World again. We may just do SOTW as a story rather than using the tests and activity pages. I'm not sure about that yet.
Science was a no brainer because I hate Science. Yes, I know most homeschoolers love the Science part but I'm not one of them! With Christian Light you can order the Science kit that goes along with the book for every grade! You don't have to go looking for all the stuff to do the experiments. The books are all workbooks that are intended for the student to do on their own which is nice when mom hates to do the Science! I add library books and DVD's to the Science curriculum to spice things up and add variety.
Tink will be sticking with Teaching Textbooks for Math and Bob Jones for Reading and Language Arts.
Peter will be doing Math, Science, and History with CLE. His reading is still to be determined which means his Language Arts is still to be determined. I keep those two subjects in the same curriculum because publishers and writers usually match the grammar workbook to the workbook in the Readers.
For Spelling both kids will be doing Sequential Spelling by DVD. They are starting that this term and it is amazing! They are both doing book one so I only needed to buy the one DVD!
Music lessons and Orchestra classes will continue like this year. I am also adding a computer class for Peter and a photo editing class for Tink. The !classes will qualify as technology and therefore they will make the state happy! Yes, I try to keep the state happy and I am totally aware that it sets me apart from most homeschoolers but that's just how I operate.
So what about you? Are you thinking of next year yet? I have never had a year where it was just so easy to plan the fall term. I think it could be that my kids are happy with the work they are doing so I only had to make minor tweaks to the program.
