This week at Heart of the Matter, we're discussing curriculum. I'm very comfortable with the curriculum we're using this year for both my kids. It feels very organic.
I'm "doing" History @ the same level for both my kids. This is what we're using...
History Odyssey from Pandia Press
Story of the World from Peace Hill Press
History Odyssey uses SOTW and CHOW as well as Usborne for the spines. H.O. also has it's own activities. I use some of them and don't use others. It's just nice to have the activity book for SOTW for additional activities.
We've used MathUSee since the beginning. I love, love, love this curriculum.
Rod and Staff
All About Spelling
The first is Rod and Staff's Beginning Wisely. It's a very thorough curriculum for grammar and writing. The next is a repeat favorite, All About Spelling. We're very much about multisensory methods & this suits us quite well. My youngest will be working with Bob Books for reading. Cristian will be using a variety of books that correlate with our History and just for fun.
R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey
Again I'll be using the same curriculum for both munchkins. We'll hopefully get some nature study time, too.
Child's Book of Character Building, Book 1: Growing Up in God's World-At Home, at School, at Play by Ron & Rebekah Coriell
We've been REALLY happy in our experiences this past year with Roots and Shoots. It was a great combination of service to community and ecological awareness. We'll also be revisiting Popejoy's Schooltime Series. I loved the chance to explore cultural and theatrical experiences with the kids for a really reasonable price. Cristian has expressed an interest in pursuing JOAD again. While Isabella would like to get back into gymnastics.
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out our curriculum. Can't wait to do the same for you!
