8th Grade Curriculum


Time goes by so flippin' fast. Seems like just yesterday we cuddled and read all day perhaps there will still be days like that!

My baby girl is growing into a wonderful young woman and it does my heart good to see it.

This year we changed a lot of things for her. We are a more relaxed homeschool style but normally for her I only provide material because she digs deep and learns so well, you know one of those easy children lol. 

Bible life study everyday.

Math this year is Life of Fred. She struggles with math (the only subject that is a struggle) and so this year we wanted to change up her curriculum with something that would appeal to her - reading!

 WriteShop E for her writing she will be required to write all of her assignments in cursive.

 She loves science so she will read Christian Liberty Nature Reader 5 along with tons of other books and we will be doing lapbooks and notebooking with Zachary.


We will continue with Mystery of History 3.

Lexi also has a Language Fundamentals as a drill every day. 

She homesteads as electives so she will be caring for goats and we are expecting babies so that will keep her very busy. She has 30 chickens and enjoys doing things with them daily and then there is Charlie her miniature horse.

Another elective she has this year is aromatherapy and herbal study. We actually have already started this within the last month but we have a lot to learn and we are loving every moment of it.

Reading comes natural to her, she will grab a book and go outside and sit with her animals all day if able. She has lots of hero's of faith books to complete this year. 

Here is our 6th grade curriculum with our smallest. 

We start school soon - Happy Schooling!
