Official Plans for the 2010-11 School Year

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

So I think I have finally nailed down what we will be doing for school next year.  Here is a overview of our plans....

Bible  Both boys will read the Bible on their own in the morning before we start.  Zach will be using the SPECK method and Noah will use this Bible...
We will also do Plants Grown Up together in the morning.
Math Both boys will continue with Math-U-See.  Zach will take Algebra I and Noah will work on the Delta level (division).  Zach will also use Life of Fred for review, and Noah will use Hands-on Equations.
Language Arts In language arts we use a lot of the materials from the Institute for Excellence in Writing.  Zach is going to be doing Medieval-themed writing lessons.  Noah will be doing Fables.  The boys will be using Fix-it for their grammar.  We will continue will Spelling Power.  Noah will do Getty-Dubay Italics. Zach will do Word Roots.  We will also be using Teaching the Classics to do some analysis of some great literature.
Science For science, we use Apologia.  Zach will be doing General Science.  Noah will finish botany in the fall and then start human anatomy.

Social Studies For history we will be doing the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the Reformation using Biblioplan.  We will also be doing some geography using the Trail Guide to World Geography.
Electives  Both boys are using Rosetta Stone for Spanish.  Noah will be working on his typing skills using Typing Instructor Deluxe.  I want to have Zach do some things with technology and/or computers, but I haven't figure out what that would be.  Any great resources out there?
