2011 “Not” Back to School Blog Hop!

Not Back to School Blog Hop

Last year while I was gearing up for my first year of Homeschool, I came across a Blog Hop. At the time I had no clue what a Blog Hop was… glad I found out. A blog hop is a place where bloggers with common interests can participate in a theme and submit their blog to one place. I poured through so many blogs, I was so inspired.

Home of the Matter Online is sponsoring another one for August.

This week’s topic is Curriculum. I am going to share 2 lists with you. My “dream” list and my “real” list! I have 2 simply because of budgetary reasons.

My Dream List:

Writing: Institute for Excellence in Writing

Science: Apologia Zoology 1 (Flying Creatures of the 5th Day)

Character Training:  Positive Action Bible

Math:  Math U See

History:  History of Mystery

Here is what we will be using for my Kindergartner:

Sonlight Core 1

Sonlight Core 1

We used this for Preston this past year.  Oliver is already doing math and reading so I am going to try Core 1 with him this year .  He will probably end up doing the Apologia Science with us.

For My 2nd Grader and possibly my Kinder – Adventures in my Fathers World.  I have this curriculum and it is for multiple kids.  I am going to work through and may discover that I do not need the Sonlight Core.  I will keep you posted!

Preston will also be using Horizons, we used it last year and liked it.

For all 3 boys I am going to use Positive Action for Character Training.

Thanks for stopping by!  I cannot wait to see all the blogger Mommies and what they are using!

Next Week:  SCHOOLROOMS!!!  (did I tell you an IKEA just opened up in my city?!?!)

This looks perfect:

 Love IKEA Inspiration!
