I'm excited about joining in on the 5 Days of Homeschooling Essentials Blog Hop sponsored by the Schoolhouse Review Crew.
Today, my topic contains info regarding "Curriculum"
What Curriculum Are We Using for Grade 6?
This year we've stepped away from using our favorite curriculum "Heart of Dakota". The book my son was heading into was a bit too old for him so we decided to take a year off and wait until he hit middle school (grade 7) to work on the next level. So this year I worked hard finding curriculum that would work with the Charlotte Mason approach to teaching, which is what we follow.
Here is what we chose for 2013-14
For History, and Literature we are using Notgrass- Uncle Sam and You
If you'd like to learn more about this curriculum in depth I just did a detailed post
For Science this year we broke up two of the Apologia Exploring Creation with Zoology Series into two semesters. 1st Semester we tackled Zoology 1 and for the 2nd Semester we are tackling Zoology 2. I wrote about this curriculum recently HERE if you'd like to read more about it in detail
For Math this year we've chosen Saxon 7/6 with DIVE into Math CD to accompany it. I wrote a detailed post regarding this curriculum HERE if you'd like to learn more..
Language Arts- We've chosen a few books from Queen Homeschool which follows the Charlotte Mason approach to homeschooling.
Our Beautiful America (Copywork)
I wrote a detailed post about all of the language arts curriculum we are using above HERE. If you'd like to learn more about it, please visit my link...
