It’s time for the first-ever themed Weekly Wrap-Up: The “Share Your Curriculum” Edition. Last week, I listed the curriculum we’ll be using this year (and I’ve already made one small change by adding TruthQuest back into our history line-up). In case you missed it, you can click to see our 2009-2010 Curriculum.

So what are you using this year? Post about it and link up, so we can all come and take a peek. It’s okay if you posted it sometime earlier than today, just be sure to link directly to your curriculum post so that we can all find it easily. Be sure to link back here, so that your readers can stop by and link their curriculum posts, too. Happy browsing!

**Links are now closed. Please join us on Fridays for the Weekly Wrap-Up.**

  1. I think I am going to try the Easy Grammar this year. I've fallen short in teaching math and grammar and plan to "fix"that this year.

    It looks like you will have a fun and productive year. How many more 50 state fridays do you have left?

  2. Hi, Kris! I am finally back to posting the weekly wrap-up. We are going to be getting started with school on August 10.

  3. Two things…

    First, in your last post you mentioned as survival tip #1, "Wear comfortable shoes". I know this! I really do, but for some reason my brain said that I could survive just 3 and 1/2 hours in my fashionable shoes. Wrong! I'll be wearing my tennis shoes tomorrow…..

    Secondly, I'll be changing up my Abeka grammar and possibly spelling now that I've already posted my curriculum for the year. Funny how a curriculum fair can do that to me…..

  4. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I will let you know how we like Real Science 4 Kids. I downloaded some samples and it looks pretty good, but it is rather expensive. I keep putting off buying it, but I can't find anything cheaper that looks as interesting to me!

  5. I finally got around to posting our curriculum choices for this year, with the move and baby coming soon life has been hetic. Thanks!

  6. HI! I saw your comment on Mckmama! I wanted to share my website with you: Sugarandspice1.etsy.com
    I will be donating a portion of all sales to the String of pearls to help families and babies like Stellan! I am trying to get it out there in any way I can! Please let your family, friends etc. I would really appreciate it!
    Thanks!! 🙂

  7. Thanks for doing this. It has been neat to see the wide variety of teaching and learning materials.
    I added your button to my website. I like what you do and have to say and I hope many more people find you!

  8. I love reading about all the curriculum options! I followed all the links and got some very good ideas for things to investigate further. I am only just beginning homeschooling – my son is 4 1/2, but I was homeschooled and have always known that is what I would do.

    I am primarily going to focus on learning to read. I got a relatively new (I think) curriculum at the home school convention. It's called Reading Rivers by Christian Cottage Curriculum. It uses a metronome as a reading tool and I am excited to try it. If that doesn't suit, I have the Explode the Code books as Plan B. I am going to use lots of homemade games and phonics manipulatives also.

    I am also focusing on math, since that is a high priority to me and my son seems to have quite an interest. I am starting off with Singapore Earlybird Kindergarten Math, and will probably move to Math-U-See in a year or two.

    For science, nothing formal, but my son has a HUGE interest in all things science-y. When he asks for television, it's always for "Something cool on the Science Channel." So I bought the Sonlight preschool science books, which he loves already, and also have gotten a number of animal books from Learning Train publishing. We will be taking advantage of our zoo membership and also have a few trips to the Natural Science Museum planned.

    I am so excited to begin! I do feel overwhelmed looking at how many subjects some of these moms teach, but I know I will find my way eventually!
