I get asked all the time what we use for this subject or that subject..and I want to know what others are using too. So here’s the low down for our homeschool curriculum choices this year. We’re adding in a whole lot of new stuff, which is always refreshing.

My Father’s World Kindergarten
Subjects we do together:
We will be studying US history from the Civil War to present using this book as our guide. We don’t cover every single chapter just because this is the story of the WORLD and we’re only focusing on the US right now…we do cover some world stuff, but mostly US.
Again, I’m choosing chapters from this book to create unit studies. We’ll use a ton of extra books for these units too. The Apologia book is our spine for this year.

We will be doing this once a month and using 13 Art Mysteries Children Should Know. This is a whole series and if it works, we’ll do more from it throughout the year.

I have a couple things I’m going to order when I get home:
Expedition Earth. I’ve heard great things about this geography curriculum…so we’ll be using that too.
And the Child Training Bible
…I’m planning on ordering this too and incorporating it into our bible time.
I would LOVE to answer any questions you have about our curriculum this year! Please make sure your name is linked with your user name so I can email you back. I get lots of questions from people without their names linked and it’s impossible to return their comment. Under settings you can change it…
I’m gaining confidence with this homeschool thing. Every year seems easier and easier. I used to be all freaked out if I bought something and it didn’t work for us. But now I know that really…it’s ok. If we don’t finish something, nobody’s gonna die. I love this time of year…gearing up for the new school year.
