    I don't post on here as much as I should! I really love fellow secular homeschoolers. I'm feeling the lack in my neck of the woods.

    7th Grade -
    Jacobs Algebra and Waldorfish Geometry through Art
    Industrial Revolution for history (This is the first time I planning something like this!)
    Chemistry - either OM high school course or You Be the Chemist, haven't decided
    Spanish via HSA
    Language Arts is a hodge podge this year: Lord of the Rings trilogy study via Online G3, Judy Blume Master class (She will be at our library next month! ) Figuratively Speaking, Elements of Style workbook, They Say, I Say, The Lively Art of Writing, NaNoWriMo, maybe a Bravewriter class if I can scrape the money from somewhere in the budget, and then more Lit, considering Lightening Lit but also just continuing to read good books. I was an English major so I kind of have a hang up paying for lit curriculum. (Except for the Lord of the Rings class because I do not want to read or talk about those books lol)
    Piano & Swimming
    Chalk pastels

    3rd grade
    Horrible Histories & Gombrach book studying Middle Ages through the Renaissance
    BW Partnership Writing
    AAS
    New American Cursive
    Keyboarding without Tears
    BA online for one twin
    Singapore for the other twin
    Prodigy Math
    Chemistry with You Be the Chemist and Mystery Science
    Maker Lab books
    SYRWTLF, Skaldo and Know it All French videos
    Chalk Pastels
    Piano for one
    Violin for the other
    soccer, gymnastics, etc etc

    Morning Basket (everyone)
    Shakespeare
    Asia study
    Greek Myths
    Nature study
    Art History and Modern Artist studies

    I'm sure I forgot something!
    Amber

    DS (almost 6) 1st grade, starting 9/17

    Literature/Poetry/History/Copywork/Art/Science: BYL Level 1

    Math: Math in Focus Grade 1 (it's a Saxon/Singapore combo for public school. It's definitely "school at home" which I didn't really want to do but they used it in his PS Kinder class last year and he seemed to do well with it, so I didn't want to reinvent the wheel until I understand his math learning style).

    Phonics: Explode the Code online

    Reading: BoB books

    Social Studies: BrainPOP Jr. and non-religious "morning basket" time with holiday read-alouds, memorization stuff we haven't done, exploring rabbit trails, etc. DD (almost 3) will be accommodated here (hopefully lol).

    We will also do swimming lessons and some extra-curriculars for homeschoolers (theatre class, art classes, etc.). I'd like to start music lessons (piano) but I'm going to wait and see how these things go before adding too much.
