- Chalkdust Pre-algebra (which if you are gasping at the price, I did not order new, but rather one piece at a time used, making the total cost about $35)
- Life of Fred: Pre-algebra 1 with Biology (Probably the only math book I have ever heard someone giggling over.)
- Michael Clay Thompson's Voyage series for grammar, vocabulary, poetry, and some writing (We used the Town level last year, and it was the first year that my oldest truly loved grammar. And he wrote some good poetry too.)
- WriteShop (We haven't tried this one before, but so far I like the looks of it, once I figured out how it worked.)
- The kids will all be doing physics, using the Kingfisher Science Encyclopedia, Handy Physics Answer Book, Basher Physics, Gizmos and Gadgets and various other experiment kits.
History & Religion
- History of the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Reformation (This is the lesson plan I spent a month or so writing for my kids.)
- It uses a lot of different books (probably too many, but we'll see how it goes). The main spine for my sixth grader will be A Light to the Nations.
Art & Music
- The Phonics of Drawing and piano lessons
- I had planned on just using our collection of art books to do a little art history, but then I found this site and this site, which I may well use instead.
How will all this fit together? We'll also do circle time in the morning, which I have yet to map out for next year and here's a link to my almost completed first quarter lesson plans (I haven't yet scheduled in logic, since the book arrived just today).
