Curriculum 2012/2013 Plans

So its that wonderful time of year to figure out whats working and whats not and re-evaluate.
I've been doing that since January. However this is when it gets crunch time.

This is what our thoughts are so far for 2012/2013 that will start for our homeschool in August.

Reading daily passages and talking about them. 
Going to read the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelations.
The kids will have devotion time as well. 
DS1 will be using Jesus Calling. 
DD and DS2 will be doing Beginner Bible stories with Questions following.

Math U See of course! 
Don't see that one changing anytime soon!
DS1 - Zeta
DD - Gamma
DS2 - Beta  
We will supplement some topics with Math Mammoth, such as Time & Money. 

All About Spelling Level 1(DS2) & Level 3(DS1 & DD)
All About Reading Level 1 & 2(DS2)

Write Shop A(DD & DS2) and D(DS1) 
As well as using their wonderful story builder cards for writing center once a week.

Still trying to decide if we are using Progeny Press Literature Guides or Veritas Press.

Simple Schooling interactive units until November. 
Considering Gods Creation after
Lab's will come from Janice Van Cleave's wonderful books, we had been doing these once a week but we may start doing them twice a week. My kids crave experiments. When asked what they wanted more of for planning. This was it. More labs mom more!! So I will cater to that as long as I can.

Road Trip USA & Time Traveler Packs.

Unit Studies & Lapbooks
No real plan for these. DD is the only one who has requested them so I will finish those plans soon.
I will be using our entire collection of Amanda Bennett's Download N Go's we own. As well as the wonderful items from Homeschool Share.

Yes yes yes... Our new favorite. There are so many different types of notebooking. It fits all 3 kids and they enjoy it rather much. We will be doing this on a variety of topics. 

The Worlds Greatest Artist

We will work on American Sign Language more in detail this year.

Typing will become a priority.

Read Aloud Plans:
Ben and Me An Astonishing Life of Benjamin Franklin by His Good Mouse Amos
Rabbit Hill
Farmer Boy

The Indian in the Cupboard
Foot Prints in the Barn
Baby Island
(Maybe Stuart Little)
Can't wait to get moved and settled. Please continue to pray for our move!!



  1. Looks like a good, well organized up coming year. I will soon write our plans as well. Can't wait to order =)

  2. Looks like a wonderful year! We're big MUS fans too. Love the Progeny Press Guides. I plan on adding some into our Sonlight studies once we're done building our new house and I have a extra money again. lol

  3. How fun!! We have used Math Mammoth and I like it a lot. We will also incorporate many of our subjects with notebooking because they are GREAT for almost everything. Have a great year starting in August!!

  4. Stopping by from the Curriculum Choice Blog Roll.

    I love to see what others are using in their homeschool.

    I have never used Veritas Press guides, but I have used Progeny Press for several years and have been really satisfied with them. I love how they integrate the Bible into the stories, and they also do a good job touching on my different aspects of literature. I highly recommend it.

    We are in the process of moving too. Our house should be finished at the end of August. Right at the beginning of our school year. Let's just say, this year is not going to start of the way I envisioned. Oh well.

    Praying for your move!


  5. May I ask how you will be implementing Road Trip USA and the Time Traveler Packs? I'm not familiar with either, but they look fabulous!

  6. I like reading what others are doing. It is out sixth year homeschooling and I have never done note booking. I'm going to look them up. Thanks.


Thanks so much for stopping by and reading about our journey! Leave me something that will make me happy! Have a blessed day!
