We are really excited to get back to homeschooling! This year Alexis enters 2nd grade and Alexander enters 3rd grade and Grandpa will be joining us again on Fridays to homeschool for 4 hours – 3 cheers for the world’s greatest Dad (besides my husband of course ! )
To prepare for our new school year, this week we have been attending Classical Conversation’s Practicum which is a learning camp for kids and a training camp for moms.
We will once again be attending a local Classical Conversations class on Tuesdays.
To go along with the Classical Conversations Curriculum we have begun an awesome lap book created by Karen Gill from WisdomandRighteousness.com. If you are doing Classical Conversations too – I highly recommend you check out these printable lapbooks here. They are an excellent resource and tool that we have just begun to use for the new year!
So here’s our full list of curriculum for 2012-2013:
Classical Conversations provides our history, science, geography, grammar, latin, art and some music.
For math, we are using Saxon.
For Phonics, we are using All About Spelling.
For literature and grammar, we are using Sonlight.
For Handwriting, we are using Handwriting without Tears (cursive).
For Beginning Typing we are using Typing Instructor.
My son is playing Flag Football again this summer/fall with the local public school and continues to take Karate. In the winter, he plans to try out for the public school basketball team (he has been playing on the team for 2 years and practicing all summer for tryouts this year!) My daughter is continuing her gymnastics tumbling class and piano lessons and they will both return to the Sunday Evening Olympians program at our church.
So it’s a full year of fun and learning and we can’t wait to get started!
