If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that we have been homeschoolers since the very beginning of our children’s school years. A few years back, I started writing down our homeschool plans since I would have friends and readers ask me what we used each year. If you care to look back, you can see what we used in the 2015-2016 year here or in the 2016-2017 school year here. 2017-2018 can be found here. 2018-2019 can be found here, 2019-2020 can be found here, and 2020-2021.
This year, we have kids in 9th, 6th, 5th, and Kindergarten and we are switching it up a bit. Since we graduated our oldest this past year and our youngest is officially school age, we’ve decided to make some changes. My youngest 2 will be going to a local hybrid homeschool/private school a couple times a week. They will be doing all their subjects there and then have homework to work on the other days. My husband or I will be assisting them with their homework on their off days.
The older two are going to be going to a one day a week program that covers English, History, Logic, and a few other subjects. Below, I’ll share a little of what we will be doing at home.
We are continuing with XtraMath.org for my 5th and 6th graders. It’s a completely free way to make sure your kids understand all of their math facts. As a mom, I can login and see how they are doing as well and what needs improvement.
For my oldest student, he will start his high school with Math-U-See for Algebra 1. 6th grader will start another year of Horizons Math. The other 2 will do math with their school and are using Saxon.
As a family, we are going to be working through Who is God? And How Can I Really Know Him? from Apologia.
Everyone will be continuing with American Heritage Girls and Trail Life, and of course youth group activities.
Hope you all have a great school year! I’m looking forward to having a lighter load this year and outsourcing more. Plus, if you missed this on a previous post, I’ll be returning to work after 18 years at home! So excited about that!
