Our plan for the new school year!

We have finally finished the 2009-2010 school year. It was a long year with several moves across the country. From NC to Or then to Va we drove and flew and drove some more! Our new school year will not begin till mid-Sept as we need a well deserved break! However, I have been planning out what we will study and am starting to organize all the books!

Ashley will be an 11th grader this year! Wow, how time flies. Although she would be a 10th grader in PS, she has enough credits for 11th grade. So her studies will be as follows:

History: World History- Streams of Civilization 1
Reading: British lit with LLATL
Voc: Wordly Wise 11
Grammar: Diagramming 1 &2, Easy Grammar 11
Writing: Writing Strands
Science: Apologia Physics
Math: Jacob's Geometry (she has finished Algebra 1 and 2, so we thought we would take a break
Spanish: continue with Rosetta Stone
Also, she will be finishing up a bowling PE credit and working on her Art through painting and charcoal.

Sara Beth will be doing 3rd grade. It is unclear what grade level her same-aged peers would be in due to birthday cut-offs...either 1st or 2nd.

Sonlight Core 3 will be our main course. She will be doing Reading, American History, Language Arts and Science with Sonlight.
Math: Singapore 3A and 3B.
Vocabulary: Wordly Wise 3
Spelling: Sequential Spelling
Spanish: some store bought Spanish books

I am getting excited to start Sonlight. I have heard great things about it and it looks awesome!

Our local homeschool group is doing a not-back-to-school picnic the end of August. The following week we are visiting my mother in law for her bday and then we will slowly get back into the swing of things! Hopefully we can fit in some hiking, some lake swimming and other activities before we start back up!
