Yes, I know it's Tuesday. And not the Tuesday after Labor Day. Due to a schedule mess-up with the carpet cleaners (who were supposed to come last week) we started today. Yesterday we were invaded. That said, however, The List is complete to my satisfaction, and we started school today in a sparkling clean house with all my little duckies in a row.
In the next week or so I plan to blog a bit about the materials we've chosen this year and why. Making the change from Classical Conversations to Tapestry of Grace has been a huge decision, and one that deserves some attention here. Many have read my "Coming Full Circle with CC" posts and this change is an extension of those thoughts. CC was a very important part of bringing us to where we now are, and as any homeschooling family can tell you, the needs of the students change--one program that works great one year may not fit at all the next. Stay tuned.
That said, here is our curricula for this year, first for Molly who is now 6:
Tapestry of Grace, Lower Grammar
The Phonics Road
The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading
I Can Do All Things (Art)
For Matty, who is now 10:
Tapestry of Grace, Upper Grammar
The Bridge to the Latin Road
All About Spelling
Getty-Dubay Cursive Italic Handwriting
MUS Epsilon and Zeta
Life of Fred Fractions and Decimals
Feed My Sheep (Art)
