School Curriculum for 2011/2012

I normally start planning around January and have everything purchased and ready before we finish up with school. However this being our first year round school year its kinda thrown me off my normal. I am behind in getting things simply because I haven't took the time to order online. I have tried to save money by looking in the used homeschool sections of several stores to get what I needed. However I have my list complete with items needing to be ordered and this is my run down of all items for our school year starting August 15. We will once again be using the Workbox System, without it I don't know how some one can homeschool! LOL -- Anyway of course I have unit studies on top of this stuff and some items will be rotated around but this is the break down of what will be used in our year.
