What We Will Be Learning This School Year

If you are visiting from Bring the Rain or Heart of the Matter, let me say WELCOME to my little corner of the homeschool world.  I hope you enjoy your visit and come back real soon!

If you are super bored and wanna know more about our homeschooling journey you can read about why we are choosing to homeschool here, how we will homeschool here, and check out our super hip schoolroom here.

Over here at Kellye's School of Learning, Kellye {aka Me, the psycho mom who cannot ever decide on a curriculum} has FINALLY made final decisions and has clicked "buy" much to the excitement and eternal gratefulness of my family and my Internet service provider.

So here is what we will be doing this year...oh and by the way before you run away forever we really aren't naming our school Kellye's School of Learning...that is just what I have been calling it to all of my "school" friends who desperately want to enroll their kids after they saw how AWESOME our year is going to be!!!

Kamryn {4th grade}

Karsyn {2nd grade}
  • Abeka Arithmetic 2 {She has had Abeka her entire life and does really well with it, so I think that we will stick with it until she is ready for Teaching Textbooks in the next couple of years}
  • First Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind Level 2 {LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS}
  • The Complete Writer, Writing with Ease Level 2 
  • Abeka Spelling and Poetry 2 {I really want to make sure that she has all of her phonics blends down.  She is also a weak speller so I am not sure that she is ready for Spelling Power.  One more year of Abeka for her.}
Bible {All Together}
History {All Together}
  • My Father's World Exploring Countries and Cultures {I really wanted to do Story of the World, but then I realized that My Father's World uses Story of the World as its main text after this series. I'm so excited because that was a very tough decision for me.}
Science {All Together}
Art {All Together}
Literature/Required Reading
  • A veteran homeschool mom in our church that I very much look up to and love to pieces shared her system of required reading with me and it made so much sense.  She always had a list of books that her girls had to read for the year.  It was required of them {even though there was no A.R. test or book about that} and every day they used time after lunch to read their Bibles and/or to read from their required reading list.  We will definitely incorporate this into our day.  We may read together, I may read aloud, we may separate and have some silent reading, we may listen to a book on CD, I don't know but there will be a whole lotta' reading going on over here!!  I'm working on my "Required Reading List" {sounds so official, I love it} now!

That is all I have so far, but I am pretty sure that we will have a full schedule!!  The girls will have piano once per week and gymnastics once per week! They are very excited to be able to have the time to get back to doing the things that they had to put off because of homework and exhaustion.  I have to say that I am too!!  

Yay!!  I can hardly wait to get started.  Our schoolroom is almost complete and all of my curriculum is in route.  I feel so blessed to be able to follow the Lord in this area of our lives.
