~ Asa's Homeschooling Materials ~

So, right now this is what our curriculum looks like for Asa, he is doing work in the third/fourth grade range.

Science: Apologia ~ Exploring Creation with Astrology, we are using lap books instead of the note booking method. Asa has tried note booking in the past and didn't like it.

English: Language Smarts level D by The Critical Thinking Company

Spelling: Spelling DooRiddles by The Critical Thinking Company

Math: Mathematical Reasoning level D by The Critical Thinking Company, Extreme Dot to Dots

History: Christian Liberty Press, I wanted to do an broad overview so I order workbooks for kindergarten through fourth grade. We stared with the kindergarten book and are doing a quick read through and overview before digging in to the fourth grade material.

Music: A Young Scholar's Guide to Composers and we are learning to play the guitar.

Art: God and the History of Art, books one and two. We love this so far.

Reading: We go to the library once a week. Both Asa and Zach love the Boxcar Children series, The Magic Tree House series, Little House on the Prairie, Max and Liz series, Treasure Island, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, The Truth Seekers Mystery Series,...we read lots!

Computer: Building Thinking Skills, Critical Thinking Skills for Reading, Math, & Science Level 2

We don't do all of this in one day. We tend to have a rotating schedule and we just pick up where we left of last time. I don't worry a ton about missing a day here and there simply because we get so much done in such a small amount of time.
