My "curriculum" list for this school year is going to look something like this... I hope : )
Mystery of History, volume 3
Truth and Grace - scripture memory work
For Esther, Isaac & Sarah-
Apologia's "Exploring Creation with Astronomy"

Phys. Ed. (various team sports and work-outs at the YMCA)
Roots on the Vine
"Elements of Literature" lapbook
"A Peek at Poetry" lapbook
Shakespeare's "A MidSummer's Night Dream"
Research paper process
probably have them each pick a Biome to research - want to deal with
facts not opinions at this point
4 book reports on books of their choosing.
"Reformation" unit lapbook - correlates with Mystery of History
"Mary, Queen of Scots" lapbook - correlates with Mystery of History
For Isaac & Sarah
The Arithmetic Primer then Saxon's Math 2 when ready
Dinosaur unit study
various animal lapbooks - hedgehogs, penquins, polarbears
Copywork from Scripture, AAMilne, Aesop, RLStevenson, Mother Goose etc.
using resources such as "Teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons",
Scholastics phonics readers,
the "Bob" books and Step 1-2 and Level 1-2 books
Reading (by me to them)
"Redwall", "The Hobbit", "Arabian Nights", stories from C.S. Lewis,
Hans Christian Andersen and
other classic fairy tales (not Disney - nothing against Disney, just want
them to know about the
originals that Disney "modifies")
Literature lapbooks - Flat Stanly, The Horse and His Boy, A Fish Out of Water, etc...
Journal writing (and coloring /dictating)
Spelling Power - in January for Isaac
I'll have to check back at the end of the year and see how we did.
