I wanted to share what curriculum and programs we are doing this year, because it’s a little different…
For American History year 2, we are lightly following Biblioplan‘s guide, which is their YEAR 4 in the classical history cycle. Last year we didn’t really use a guide and I wanted something to help me out this year. So, Biblioplan has a great book list and other things to go along with it and I think it will be great!
Right now we are learning about the civil war! 🙂
For science this year, we are still using Apologia but are learning about Swimming Creatures of the 5th Day together!! I think the kids will love learning about ocean animals!
For Spanish, we had to find something different and are trying out Spanish for Children. This is quite a leap in ability and difficulty level, but I am excited and hoping we retain some spanish this year!
Finally, we are adding ART this year!! My kids were SO excited!! We are using Atelier Level 4 and so far so good. 🙂
I hope to blog, as I did last year, with ideas we find for teaching history and science!! Stay tuned for all our co-op fun!!
