Our 3rd Grade Curriculum

Image
Gulp! I could not believe it when I realized my youngest was going to be a 3rd grader this year!

I can still remember our first year of homeschooling and boy have we come a long way from learning letters and sounds!  Yet when I think that Evan is the same age now as Ian was when we first started on this journey it just boggles my mind.  I felt like Ian was so old and grown up when we began homeschooling and yet I feel like Evan is so young!

It's been so great and affirming to look back at where we started but I also know that it's fall and time for me to look ahead and plan what we'll be working with this year.

Because curriculum choices are so unique and so abundant I do enjoy seeing what other people are using for their homeschooling and so this week I vowed to share what we're using...

These are our pick for Evan's 3rd grade year.


We are a very eclectic homeschooling family and we tend to put together most of our own work but there are a few books that we use…

Wonderful Wednesday's Linky Party: Last Wednesday of August

Sadly, this will be my last time co-hosting the wonderful Wednesday link up for awhile.  We have a pretty busy fall lined up and I just didn't think I would be able to pull my own weight with all these wonderful ladies... so I'll be taking a temporary break.  I just can't believe it's already the end of August, the end of summer... where did it all go?!  We're determined to enjoy every last day outside that we can and spent four days in the past week entertaining friends at the lake, enjoying the barbecue, and swimming all day.

Our 7th Grade Curriculum

Image
I find that the older my kids get and the higher up in grades we reach, the more my anxiety about teaching "the right" way and "the right" skills occupies my every waking thought.

It hardly seems possible that I have a 7th grader.  We're entering our 5th year of homeschooling and while I do find homeschooling easier now that I feel like we really know what we're doing I still find that I am constantly worrying about what else we could/should be doing.

Because curriculum choices are so unique and so abundant I do enjoy seeing what other people are using for their homeschooling and so this week I vowed to share what we're using...

These are our pick for my son's 7th grade year.


We are a very eclectic homeschooling family and we tend to put together most of our own work but there are a few books that we use and try use on a fairly consistent basis and here they are:
