2011-2012 Curriculum Choices

Here it is - our curriculum list for this year.

I will start with Norah:
My Father's World for History, Geography, Bible and Science
Spelling Power - spelling, obviously:)
Writing will consist of a little bit from Writing with Ease and Games for Writing
Art - A little from here and a little from an Art textbook a friend gave me (this same friend is an art teacher and she often blesses the girls by giving them art lessons!)
Read alouds - many of them are recommended here and here (a list of 1000 - that really narrows it down for me, right?)

My Father's World for reading and Bible. We are also using this to help with sight words.
Lucy will also do a few activities suggested in Games for Writing.
Lucy is joining Norah for history, art, and science.
Her read alouds come mostly from this list.

I think that about sums it up - although, I keep thinking I am forgetting something. Our history this year is American history - the girls are excited about it. They can't wait to learn about the pioneers!

I will save Daphne's plans for a post of its own.

Norah told me yesterday that she is very excited to learn about the pilgrims and Indians.
