This week starts the 3rd Annual (Not) Back-to-School Blog Hop – however, this is my first year participating. I’d like to send a BIG shout-out to Heart of the Matter for hosting this hop. Thank you!
So, each week in the month of August is a different theme within this hop – this is week one and the topic is curriculum. WOOT! Being homeschoolers, if there is ONE THING we LOVE to talk about ~ it is curriculum. How many of us are curriculum junkies? Raise your hand with me ladies! 🙂
Well, I have two boys – a 14 year old (9th Grade – yes, the FIRST YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL – YIKES! how did that happen???) and a 3 year old who will be working on some different pre-k stuff.
For the older boy (I mean, young man), here is what we will be using:
History: Ancient Civilizations
Science: we are going to start with Botany then see where we go from there. We were going to do Biology, but a couple of his homeschool friends will be doing that next year and they all want to do it (the labs, etc) together. THIS is ONE of the awesome things about homeschooling…PLANS CHANGE so the kids get more out of it!
Bible: we were going to do The Life of Christ, but now I’m not sure – still deciding on this one. 🙂
Art: Artistic Pursuits
For the “lil man” we will be using a mixture of anything I can get him to do for a minute or two! 🙂 I have several things for him:
For him, I just want learning to be FUN! so that is where our focus will be.
I am SO EXCITED to hop over to other ladies blogs to see what they have planned. If you stopped by, please say “Hi!” so I can make sure to visit you as well.
