Our Plan for 2009/2010


Life with my 3 Boybarians is hosting a Not Back To School Blog Hop. This weeks feature is curriculum. So, I figured now would be a good time to post our complete plan for the upcoming year. After a lot of back and forth, I finally have decided on what we're doing and completed all purchases.


My oldest son just graduated , and the youngest is not yet school age, so for the first time in a while, I will only have two "doing" school this year.


Our hands down favorite History/Literature curriculum is Sonlight. We have used this for most of our twelve years of homeschooling. This will be our second time using Core 5, which is the Eastern Hemisphere. I am looking forward to it even more this second time around as I was our first. This is by far my favorite core in the program. While complete as is, I chose to supplement with some items from Geography Matters and Amazon to make it a little more hands on for my younger child.

Geography Through Art:




Global Art:





Eat Your Way Around The World:





Uncle Josh's Outline Map Book:


So, both boys will be working on these together as well as their Bible which consists of; Training Hearts Teaching Minds.



And Luther's Small Catechism:






While I love combining as many subjects as I can, so both boys are working together, it is getting more difficult with the age difference. So, for the remainder they will each work on their own subjects, with individual help from me when needed.


For 7th grade:


Language Arts: Learning Language Arts Through Literature(Green Book)


Math: ACE Paces


Science: Apologia General Science



For 4th Grade:


Language Arts: BJU English, Spelling, and Reading. Handwriting without Tears.


Math: Rod and Staff


Science: Exploring Creation With Zoology 2


So, we are all set for the new year to begin, although we are still working on completing some loose ends from this past year. I am looking forward to starting afresh soon with all new materials. One thing I am most excited about was a brand new to me recent find:

The Well Planned Day Planner! This is great! I will probably write a full review here in the next day or two, but let me say, THIS is the planner I have been waiting 12 years for! I am so excited about it. I just received it in the mail this weekend and have been going over it. It has everything you will need for planning your school year(for up to FOUR children!) all in one handy place, as well as space for personal and household items as well. The layout is beautiful. You can go to the site for sample pages to download. The price is more than reasonable for all it includes. My personal opinion is that this is a homeschool MUST!(no, I am not affiliated with the company in anyway, nor do I personally know the makers, I am just one extremely happy customer!)

Be sure to check out all of the blogs participating in the blog hop, you are sure to gain new ideas whether you are a new homeschooler or seasoned. Plus, it's just fun to read what others are doing!

I'm doing Core 5 too, although this is our first time through it. I'm doing Core K for the second time, however, with my younger crowd. Thank you for sharing on the Blog Hop!

簡善琳瑜珈補習班創辦人簡善琳老師,在三十幾年前瑜珈風氣尚未盛行的少女時代即對它產生濃厚興趣少時體質贏弱敏感也因瑜伽而獲得顯著改善,所以立志貢獻所學,藉由瑜珈來達成幫助國人身體健康的願望。高雄瑜珈中簡善琳瑜伽養生會館除了硬體設備在會館環境上建立最精緻、最優質的多功能複式場所外,為避免其他瑜珈教室之師資情況(即投入教學工作則無力再學習進修之窘境),對於師資的培訓與要求更是不遺餘力,所有師資不分資深資淺每個月都要接受新的瑜伽課程訓練,期盼與國際接軌,隨時給予學員最新的資訊與知識。針對初學者教授九大關節操、拜日式、基本功法、淨脈呼吸法等,溫和而緩慢的瑜珈,透過簡單的延展動作及呼吸按摩身體各部位的經脈,奠定初學者學習瑜伽的基礎。會館裡有初級瑜伽、整體瑜伽、哈達瑜伽、養生瑜伽、有氧瑜伽、塑身瑜伽、氣功瑜伽、瑜伽提斯、Ashtanga、孕婦瑜伽、進階瑜伽、體位法瑜伽…等數十項豐富瑜伽課程提供選擇。

What's with the weird looking comments?

We are SL users. Core 4 this year. And the planner I'll have to look into!

Can you give me the link for the planner? The one on your blog isn't working.

SamuraiMom said...

knit1kids4,
I am not sure what is up with those comments, but I have to admit to being quite annoyed with them by now....

Try this for the planner:

I hope you like it as much as I do!

We are just finishing Core 4 and LOVE it! Although Core 5 is still my favorite.
