Day 131. Curriculum Plan for 2010/2011.

I can’t tell you how good it feels to have the basics for my curriculum, picked out for nest year! I started WAY too late last year and with baby #4 arriving in time for turkey dinner this fall…this mama better have my act together. Not too mention, I have things to do this summer, you know important things like going to the beach and sleeping in. I do not want to be working on school.

I wondered before I homeschooled how much it actually cost, so I’m gonna tell you. I have three orders written out ready to go and they look a little somethin’ like this.

Abeka $156.60

Sonlight $875.77

Teaching Textbooks $242.90

for a grand total of 1275.27 to fill in the core curriculum for the 3 kids for next year…(this does not include electives)

EMMA~ KINDERGARTEN

All core subjects~Abeka

Bible ~ Sonlight

TAYLOR (5TH GRADE)/  CAMERON (6TH GRADE)

Spelling~Abeka

Read & Thinks (reading comprehension quizzes)~ Abeka

Bible~ Sonlight (Almost went with Positive Action curriculum)

Language Arts~Sonlight

Science~Sonlight (Almost went with Abeka)

History~Sonlight

Math~Teaching Textbooks

ELECTIVES FOR ALL THREE KIDS~

Cooking (1x per week) ~ William Sonoma COOKING TOGETHER. Purchased at Borders for 40% off. I have seen lots of kids cookbooks, but this one is fantastic. Very basic ingredients and lots of pictures. We will be doing one recipe a week throughout the year.

Art (1x per week) ~ I am putting together my own gig for this. I wanted actual art projects, not art history etc. I will be sharing this with you when it is complete! I am excited about this one…love love art! Love getting messy and creating things! All three kids will be doing the same thing.

So, after much research, prayer, and thought….this is where it’s at! Of course this plan is always subject to change until the books are in my hands, but I am 99% sure this is where we are headed! Email me with any questions!!!!

Now there are just 39 school days left until summer.

    Good for you!
    I sure wish I had the patience to do this too.
    My kids are 16, 14, 9 and 7 and I’ve always wanted to h/s, but I know I don’t have the time or patience. I do my own thing on the side with them as well as public school, but I know I could do better. Good job girl! You rock! cant wait 2 see the art projects! niki

    Interesting, thanks for sharing! I wish my kids could come to you for art and cooking! I absolutely can’t stand either one and can’t stand messes! I know I will need to get over it. Thanks for the inspiration!

    always i used to read smaller articles that as well clear
    their motive, and that is also happening with this paragraph which I am reading here.
