So after MUCH deliberation and searching blogs and curriculum sites, prayer and help from friends; I think I have finally decided on what this school year will (generally) look like!
JACK (1st Grade)
Math Mammoth 2A/2B
Language Lessons for the Very Young
Explode the Code book 4/Spell to Write & Read (for Spelling rules and reasons)
Adding in January for Jack:
Possibly Writing with Ease
Main focus is helping Joshua learn to read fluently!
Math Mammoth 1A/1B
Language Lessons for Little Ones 3
Explode the Code book 1/Spell to Write & Read (same reasoning as above)
Subjects that will be done together:
We will begin with a Unit Study of Psalm 23 (slightly modified to our family) then decide if we will continue in a topic/unit study format. If not, we will begin using Bible Study Guide for All Ages (Beginner)
Continued work on Big Truths for Little Kids (Catechisms)
5 Solas : Sola Gratia/Sola Fide/Solus Christus/Sola Scriptura/Soli Deo Gloria (Jack)
Elemental Science's Introduction to Science w/experiments
No formatted curriculum. We will do seasonally appropriate unit studies & some biographies along with plenty of reading aloud by Mommy!
