Not sure about all you other homeschool moms out there, but I am finally getting ready for the year! We are keeping some old favorites and branching out with some new and fun things.
Here's the grand tour...
Easy Grammar! It's easy. It's grammar. Enough said.
The only spelling book you'll ever need. Yay!
Now, for the New and Exciting...
The Time Travelers series from Homeschool in the Woods. Basically you get a history lesson and then project ideas that correspond. For each lesson you prepare an addition for a lapbook that will be finished at the end of all of the lessons. I am so excited to do this! The lapbook templates are amazing in detail and not childish at all. AND we are reading LOTS of historical fiction. That will have to be another post, as there are too many to include here!
Noeo Science is right up my alley...not a 'textbook' based curriculum, but rather interesting books and it includes a teachers manual and <drum roll> a physics set from Thames and Kosmos and an electric circuit kit. Yay!
This seemed fun. The book gives a scenario and the kids have to finish the story with their own imaginations. I think it will be well received.
Another 'new-ish' addition...more notebooking! Lots of notebooking. Writing across the curriculum and such.
How about you? What is the one subject you are looking most forward to this coming year?
