For 11th grade
my dd usually helps decide what to do. We are almost set for next year
Math: Jacob;s geometry
Reading: LLATL gold - British lit
Voc: Wordly Wise
SS: Streams of Civilization 1
Science: We are still deciding...maybe Apologia Advanced Biology
Still need something for grammar too
This will be our first year doing Sonlight. We are hoping it will be more challenging for my almost 3rd grader. We dd LLATL this year and it was too slow paced for her. We also did Horizons, which wasn't bad, but too repetitive.
Forgot to add. Sara Beth, my soon to be 3rd grader, will be doing 5 days for reading/history, math and spelling. Ashley, my soon to be 11th grader, will be doing school 4 1/2 days a week. She has scored a great babysitting job for the fall!
We won't start till Sept sometime. We are still finishing up this year.

We plan on starting just the basics mid-July, full time mid-August.
Basics will be done daily (reading math handwriting bible)
History 4 days a week
geography 2 days a week (states)
science 3 days a week
grammar 3 days a week
writing 4 days a week
spelling will probably be 5 days a week but will be very light.
I'm doing 2nd (mostly) with Ben and preschool with Daniel.
Song School Latin (almost finished)
Latin for Children A (starting in Aug)
R&S English 2 (and maybe 3)
Sequential Spelling 1
Miquon Math (as far as we can get, no schedule for this one)
Handwriting w/o Tears (Fall)
Possibly Abeka cursive in the spring... haven't decided
Early Reading Comprehension from Varied Subject Matter books C & D (late Spring after English)
Apologia Zoology 2 & 3
Mystery of History 1
Abeka Art 2
My own music curriculum (Fall instruments and Spring composers)
Spectrum Geography 3 (finishing by Aug)
Abeka Health 1 & 2 (already finished)
Spectrum Reading 2 (almost finished)
Leapfrog, Starfall, lots of books, lots of play, lots of bugging his brother and stealing his brother's stuff!
Daniel doesn't have a schedule.
Ben will do science 2 days a week, history, art, and music 3 days a week, and everything else daily (Latin, English, HWT, math, Bible, Spelling). It takes us appx 2 hours per day.
Forgot to tell you when we're starting. First term started the first week of May. Second term starts Aug 16th. Third term starts Jan 3rd.
For my kindergartner, we're using My Father's World kindergarten curriculum. We started June 1st and do school every other day, usually 45 minutes to an hour at most, and will keep going until we finish (except for taking off the month of December). The curriculum is based on 6 days for each unit, so we take 2 weeks to finish each unit, as we only do a 3 days per week. We're also working on Spanish (just basics like numbers, colors, names) and some social skills and facial recognition videos.
preschooler will do 2-3 days at home; 1 day at a local preschool
3rd and 5th grade- school every weekday.... Bible is only 4 days with completing Sunday School papers on Fridays.... Health starts last term..... Writing is only on Tuesday and Thursday
starting new year August 9th
stay at home, homeschooling momma to Jacob(12), Alisha(10), Andrew (5)
We started Kindergarten this week and we are using:
Little Hands to Heaven (Heart of Dakota) substituting Spell to Write and Read for the phonics (learning phonograms right now while continuing to practice current reading level daily) and MEP Reception Year for math. I'm also trying out Miquon and Horizons K for math as I try to get a feel for our preferences (me for teaching, him for learning). We're not using the devotionals or CD scheduled in LHTH.
We are doing that daily and anything/everything else is informal and unscheduled.
