Bible, History, Science, Grammar & Writing

Well I've made some changes yet again to our curriculum.  We were using ACE paces for English, Science,  Spelling.  I was really feeling like I was not involved enough with Joshua's schooling so I've been on a quest for the last couple of months to find something new. I made my final decision today and we will be starting new curriculum Monday.

For Bible & History I've decided to use Veritas Press along with the Greenleaf Guide to Old Testament History.  For Science and Grammar & Writing we will be going back to BJU.  For Spelling it's back to All About Spelling. I had tried ACE for spelling but I should have never tried to fix something that wasn't broken. I also subscribed to Meet the Masters for art through the Homeschool Buyers Co-Op. We will be starting Heart of Dakota's Drawn Into the Heart of Reading for our reading curriculum.We will use Handwriting Transition Student Worktext (Reason for Handwriting) for penmanship.

For Jacob I am using ACE Kindergarten with Ace & Kristi. I am giving serious thought to using BJU's K4 program with him in the fall. I would probably use the online streaming classes for him.

Well that's all for tonight folks. See ya'll after next week when I do a week in review.

Why did you change so much at this point in the school year? Why not wait until the new school year starts?

Sara, Things just were not working for my son. He wasn't retaining much of the pace work he was doing. I needed to have something where I could really be involved & make sure he was really learning. We also school year around so I don't really have a "school year". We just move onto the next level if it's working or change when needed.

Thats what is sooo great about homeschooling! Being able to use what is good for our children, and i its not, we can correct it and move on since we aren't on anyone elses time frame :)

Hi. I happened upon you through the HomeSchoolReviews forum. I am brand new to HSing next year and I have purchased a used set of OT&Ancient Egypt from VP. I see that you used it 2 years ago. Can I ask if you enjoyed it and for what age you used it? Do you still have the card set?
Thanks for your help
