We're gearing up for school at our house. This year we'll have two second graders, a fourth grader and a fifth grader! Where has the time gone?
I'm excited that we've joined a homeschool group here in the area. It's an a la carte program that allows me to pick and choose classes for my kids. This semester I chose Art, Writing (Institute for Excellence in Writing), Science, and Classical Memory Master. The classes are taught by former or retired teachers. The church where we meet allows parents to check out books and materials from their extensive church library.
Here's a list of what we're using this year in school; all textbook names are links:
Bible--Children Desiring God Series: God's Names, God's Providence, God's Promises,
Grandpa's Box by Starr Meade
Science--Answers in Genesis: God's Design for Life,
My Nature Journal
History and Geography--Story of the World Volume 2
Character--Lessons in Responsibility for Girls, Lessons in Responsibility for Boys, Character Trails
