ok so this is what I have picked out.

Five in a row for both Brandon (9) and Ashlie (4). I plan on intergrating history/geography and language arts with the stories. I will have them both keep a notebook Brandon can write a paragraph and Ashlie can draw.

For Ashlie I have
A reason for handwritting kindergarden
Some type of journal I figure I can get a spiral bound book or something at ACMoore or Micheal's
I don't plan on doing any formal math with her yet. Just introducing counting and numbers through the stories and in general
I am debating getting the get ready for the code series from sonlight but I think I may wait till next year or at least further into the year.

For Brandon
A reason for handwritting- transition to cursive
Singapore math 3
Grammer practice simplified
love to learn K-5 journal/lanuage arts program

I'm also thinking about getting story of the world from love to learn at a later time. IS anyone using this could I adpat it to suit both their ages? I am sure Ashlie could just listen in on the stories.Do you all think that alright? Should I try and find a science? Do you have any suggestions?

That sounds really well thought out! I haven't used The Story of the World, but I've heard a lot of good things about it.

That sounds great to me. You can always get a hands on science experiment bood from the library or find them on the net once you get going on the other stuff really good. I am excited for your school year.

There is some science in the FIAR teachers book.

i have used Story of the World and you could easily adapt it to suit any ages... younger or older.
