Curriculum Plans 2013-2014

Choosing curriculum would be great fun with an unlimited budget.  Wouldn't you agree?  I have spent weeks narrowing down my choices trying to use what I have available (so as not to break the bank!) and still try to make my life be manageable.  I am going to try to be more scheduled this year and want to start each day with Circle Time activities.  (Will be posting a review on this this e-book.)

This is the plan:

Katie-11th/12th grade-
Katie is planning to graduate a year early and has been working toward this.  This is the reason she has more than one English course

Bible-Notgrass World History
History-Notgrass World History
English-Notgrass World Literature, LLATL British Literature, IEW-SWI and the Elegant Essay
Foreign Language-French (still deciding on this)
Science-Chemistry 101
Math- Geometry PACES
Music- pipe organ lessons/theory

Ryan-8th grade

Bible- New Testament Workbook
