It's hard to believe that I have a 3rd grader… or that we've been homeschooling since Jonathan was 3 years old. My how time flies! We started our 2014-2015 school year in July and here's a list curriculum that we're using this year.
Bible and Worldview
- Reading Old Testament – 2 chapters per day.
- Kids in the Word Bible Reading Journal
- Grapevine Studies Old Testament Overview
- PictureSmart Bible for K-3
- Who is My Neighbor? from Apologia's Worldview series and corresponding Notebooking Journal
- Mystery of History Volume 3 Text
- MOH v3 Student Pages Download
- MOH v3 Notebooking Pages from Bright Ideas Press
- Additional books on topics along the way
- Math Mammoth Light Blue Grade 4
- Splash Math and other apps for reinforcement
In addition to these things, we're doing some fun things along the way like drawing and computer programming. We also take other interesting rabbit trails as they come along.
Now that we're living in California, the laws governing our homeschool have changed. We're registered as a private school in California. One of the greatest benefits to homeschooling in California is no testing requirement. In North Carolina, we were required to administer a standardized test once per year. The laws and requirements in general are more relaxed and less defined than what we're used to from the past few years in North Carolina. For this reason, we decided to join HSLDA for an extra layer of protection and advice in our homeschooling this year. I also rely heavily on Scholaric homeschool planner for planning our daily lessons in advance but also as documentation of what we did and tracking attendance should either of those things be required of us.
