As always, we are sticking with our Charlotte Mason inspired homeschool life. It’s been a great journey so far.

Now… Let’s dive into our curriculum choices.

Language Arts

For Language Arts we are using The Good and The Beautiful level 5. This year I gave my older kids a few options for their curriculum, and this is what they chose.

I think what drew them to the curriculum was the art that was incorporated throughout. My kids love anything to do with drawing or painting.

A bonus has been the selection of good literature that is definitely twaddle-free! Our most recent read was The Hour Book by Evaleen Stein. We really enjoyed it.

What’s included?

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Spelling
  • Grammar and Punctuation
  • Vocabulary
  • Literature
  • Geography
  • Art
  • Poetry Recitation

The fact that it has so many subjects wrapped up into one book is awesome. I like that I don’t have to have separate books. And it is filled with Charlotte Mason inspired goodness!

We were planning on using a separate Spelling curriculum for my son, but after trying out the sentence dictation in the program, I think we are going to stick to that.

Typing

For typing, I found a website with free typing lessons that we are using. When we complete that, we will find more typing games or lessons online.

The one I am currently using is part of Easy Peasy’s computer course. She has a lot of good ideas and typing games on her website if you look for them.

Math

My son is using Easy Peasy Math Step 2 (the updated online version), and my daughter is using Easy Peasy Math Step 1 Offline. Easy Peasy Step 1 can be used for 5th or 6th grade depending on the child’s math skills. Sometimes Step 1 can be completed in one year, and other times it takes a couple of years to get through the book.

In our case, my son came from doing Math-U-See. Whenever we made the switch to Easy Peasy Math he tested into Step 1 and my daughter tested into Math 4.

My daughter uses the offline version because she does better with Math when it’s pencil and paper. My son, on the other hand, has mild dyslexia. So, he responds better to the online version. He gets the same kinds of videos that he had in Math-U-See except now all of his problems are online too.

I believe that Step 2 is now available offline as well. Her offline versions are super affordable, too!

We also use Musical Multiplication as a refresher for their Math facts.

Science/Nature Study

 The Good and The Beautiful Intro to Energy and Marine Biology.

I plan on doing a separate review of her Science units after we complete them. So, be on the lookout for those!

So far we have completed Intro to Energy. The science experiments were very simple, and none of the materials you needed were hard to find. A lot of what you need is laying around the house already.

For Nature Study, we are using some of my Nature Journaling with Nature Anatomy printables. Click on the link and check them out. They are free!

PE/Health

PE and Health are a state requirement for us. We are using  Easy Peasy PE/Health-Evens this year. It’s simple and free!

Foreign Language

We chose to use Easy Peasy Online Spanish 6th Level. We are six weeks in and so far they are learning a little bit of Latin along with their lessons.

Bible

We read from the KJV Bible. We are reading Acts, 1st and 2nd Corinthians, and Proverbs this year.

We always use the KJV bible for a couple of reasons.

#1: We want our children to use the same version that is read in our church. It’s used for their Sunday School’s memory verses and read by our Pastor.

#2: We feel like the KJV is the truest version, and we want our children to be able to understand the complex speech.

History

Exploring American History by Christian Liberty Press. I have always enjoyed their Nature Readers and History resources.

We plan on using other resources from the library as we go along. We will choose biographies and such for a few of the mentioned people.

What about Artist/Composer Studies?

As I mentioned before Art/ Picture Study is included in our Language Arts program. However… it is not the traditional sense of Picture Study according to Charlotte Mason. So, we are doing a few extra things to supplement with that.

We have been checking out books from our local library to study artists and composers. We’ve also pulled up some free resources online.

It isn’t really the most formal plan, but it’s working for now.
