2015 Curriculum Overview



Our school year has already started and we're two weeks into 2nd grade with both Ash and Garrett so I thought I would share what curriculums we are currently using.


Math - CTC online Mathematics (Grade 1 and 2) - We started using this for a review for and will continue to use it.  We are about halfway though the Grade 1 curriculum and will be switching over to 2nd Grade most likely in December.  We're also working our way through A Beka Arithmetic Levels 1 and 2.


English/Language Arts - Horizons Reading and Phonics Grade 2 and BJU English 2 Writing and Grammar, and IEW's Writing Lessons in Structure and Style: Bible Heroes.  Literature selections will be Tales from the Odyssey (Books 1 and 2), Because of Winn-Dixie,  Stone Fox, The Cat of Bubestes  and The Phantom Tollbooth.



Science - Apologia's Exploring Creation with Astronomy followed with Apologia's Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the 5th Day.

History:  Mystery of History Volume 1: Creation to the Resurrection will be our main history text while also introducing American History with A Beka's  My America and My World (Grade 1) and Our America (Grade 2). We are also currently doing a unit study while reading from Youth With A Mission's HEROES OF HISTORY Captain John Smith: A Foothold in the New World.




Electives:

Art:  Tuesdays - Madcap Logic's Creativity Express Online  Thursdays- Artistic Pursuits as well as World's Greatest Artists Vol 1 Study from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

Foreign Language - French:  We will be using both Middlebury Interactive Languages Elementary French 1 for Grades K-1 as well as the French Essentials course through Schoolhouseteachers.com as well as using Duolingo for French for practice.
