Aaron's 4th grade curriculum choices


image
Aaron is 9 years old, 4th grade

I think this is the basics for Aaron this year.  I feel like he needs something more, but I'm just not sure yet what that is.  I feel like I need more of a spine for him like Trail guide to learning possibly.  I will update as I add new curriculum throughout the year, but this is what he has for now.

Math:

He will be doing Teaching Textbooks 5 this year for math.  I was so excited when I realized I already had this from when April used it. He mainly just uses the CD's so I haven't needed to replace the book yet.

Science:

Along with his brother he will be Exploring Creation with Botany, and he has a journal to go with it. For a supplement I also have Skill Sharpener's science (not pictured) by Evan Moore.

Art:

He will use Home art studio grade 4 (not pictured), Drawing basics with Thomas Kinckade, and for fun a step-by-step drawing people Usborne book.

Language arts:

A lot of these books are from last year, and he'll just keep working through them because he didn't get very far in them! Writing and Spelling: Daily 6 trait writing, with maybe a change to  write shop D halfway through year.  A reason for handwriting, word roots. Spelling: language smarts D

I don't have a reading or history program for him yet. I need to make some more decisions as we get into the school year. So for now these subjects will just be included with other stuff or in unit studies.

Back to homeschool photos 2015

It's that time of year again. We need some fresh new pictures for the sidebar over there, and the kids of course keep growing.  So, we got some fun shots one morning at the park. I saw someone had used sidewalk chalk for a fun way to do back to school pictures so that's what we did!

It was really fun drawing all these up, and I think they came out kinda cute. Except the boys just wanted to do funny poses and faces, so this is the best we got of them.

April's of course came out great.  She knows how to get a good picture!
