We've only been in school officially one week, and I swear my son is already eyeballing next June on the calendar. Buddy, you've got a lot a learnin' to do before then! I find it helpful when other bloggers post their annual curriculum because it sometimes exposes me to ideas, topics, and books of which I'm not aware. So I thought I'd post my son's curriculum this year, just in case anyone has a child in a similar situation and is looking for something different.
4th grade boy/2011-2012 curriculum:
Math - Saxon Math 5/4 supplemented with "Life of Fred: Fractions"
Writing - Institute for Excellence in Writing: Ancient History-Based Writing Lessons
History - History of the World: Ancient Times supplemented with: Usborne Internet-linked Encyclopedia of World History, Trail Guide for World Geography
Science - Apologia Zoology 3: Land Animals of the Sixth Day
Bible - Apologia "Who is God?"
Grammar - Shurley Grammar 4
Reading: "real books" on ancient history and land animals
Cursive - Handwriting without Tears
Latin - Latina Christiana I
Spanish - outside class
Art History - outside class
During the first week, my son got a little restless because his mind was still on riding waves at Edisto Beach, canoeing on the Broad River, watching "I Love Lucy" on TV, and generally staring up at the sky.
So we put History in action by building a "home" like the first nomads would have built.
Happy school year to you!
