We are fortunate enough to be able to swap out things that don't work, for things that do. For our 2012-2013 school year, there were many thing we did not like. Even though our plan was thorough, it just wasn't a good fit for our family. As I said in that post last year, nothing was set in stone. Fortunately we learned a lot about what works and what does not. Our plan for the next school year is much more solid.
Because we homeschool year round, our school years blend together.
So far this is our plan from now until Jayden completes second grade. It is not final, nor is it complete.
*All subjects contain a link that breaks down what he will be learning.
Math: Math in Focus 2A & 2B
LA Spelling: Soaring with Spelling Level 2
LA Grammar: Growing with Grammar Level 2
LA Writing: Winning with Writing Level 2
*Both kids participate in a monthly writing club as well.
Science: R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey- Life
History: Story of the World Volume 1
Geography: Map work from our history lessons
Art: Art classes through the library
Spanish: R.E.A.L. Homeschool Spanish
Jayden & Caitlin are both in karate and gymnastics. In the fall Jayden did flag football. He did a winter baseball clinic as well. Caitlin is in soccer.
We also have a book list that we will get through this year. This book list is compiled of books that I will be reading to both children.
Apart from LA and math, all other subjects will take place on an alternating schedule.
Caitlin will continue to learn basic addition, subtraction, and practicing her reading and writing. We will also use various workbooks I have for her if/when she is interested.
Caitlin will join us for science, spanish, music, and art (all at an appropriate level). Because she is not required to do anything for another 2 years (kindergarten is not mandatory here), we will go at whatever pace she sets.
