    I have been REALLY struggling over next year. I will have senior who cant write and a sophomore that wont get her history credits if I keep plugging along at our current pace. I have to be creative if I want to keep using my beloved SCM history guides without skipping anything. I have been searching all over for a different history plan, or trying to figure out how to race through them. Here is what I finally settled on. I think:


    IEW writing class

    Worldviews Class

    Economics – Uncle Eric books

    Family (sophomore and 7th grader only, senior is on his own)

    History: SCM Greece 2X week, SCM Early Modern 3x week

    Bible: Lessons from SCM Greece

    Geography: Visits To (cant remember which one)

    Artist/Composer/Poet – SCM or Ambleside, depending on budget

    Latin: Continuing with Latin


    Handicrafts: Inspirational Lettering class, drawing

    Classical Astronomy (over the next 3 years)

    Family Literature – still working on Lord of the Rings series.

    10th grader

    Math U See Pre Algebra

    English: Analytical Grammar, Beyond the Book Report 3, written narrations, SW/ULW 3, Using some history reading towards literature.

    Science: light this year, possibly Master Books Origins course

    Self Knowledge – continue

    More than a Carpenter and another apologetics or worldview type book

    7th Grader

    Math U See Epsilon

    English: Analytical Grammar, written narrations, SW/ULW 2

    Read alouds: Countdown, Times of Trouble                                           Stronger than Fire, The Spanish Bible Triumphs Over the Inquisition    (that’s all I have decided on so far!)




    Already a change. I think we will dig out Genesis through Deuteronomy and Ancient Egypt for this year and focus on African geography instead of me making a big geography year. I think it would keep things from getting too the same to combine history and geography. We will add in some missionary biographies and some great African animal book I have.


    6 year old – Heart of Dakota Beyond, Queen Language Arts, Queen Printing, Masterbooks Math


    11 year old – Masterbooks World Story (that’s the plan at least, if it doesn’t work, we will just read living books), Masterbooks Math, Queen Language Arts, Queen Cursive, maybe Apologia science if our co op doesn’t have any science classes


    9th grader – Apologia Biology with our co op, To Every Nation (from Not Consumed), Jensen’s Grammar, CLE Math


    11th grader – Masterbooks American History (if it’s too much, we will find some living books), CLE Home Economics, Jensen’s Punctuation, Personal Finance


    And I will have my first graduate this fall!


    Feeling like I’m going to crash and burn, as usual. 😛
