Homeschool Science Curriculum 2017-2018


2017/2018 Homeschool Curriculum for 2nd Grade 

Reading & Language Arts:

This fall my son will continue finishing up Sonlight Core A that he started in January. We have a few read alouds left to go through. He’s finished up Sonlight Language Arts 1, and will be moving on to Sonlight Language Arts 2. We love the LA program with Sonlight! It fits this boy perfectly. 

Science: Finishing up Sonlight Science A and sitting in on big brother’s chemistry and physics study.

Math: Teaching Textbooks 3 (we love this program) 

History & Geography: from Confessions of a Homeschooler

Critical Thinking: Mind Benders from The Critical Thinking Company

Handwriting: A Reason for Handwriting B

He will also be taking a fun Foundations class that is kind of like a Five in a Row type class at our local co-op and he will also be taking art there. 

2017/2018 Curriculum for 4th Grade

Here is what we’ve settled on for my oldest son for 4th Grade.
