Posted by   + Show Post
For those of you who buy curriculum, what have you gotten so far?

I've only gotten All About Spelling so far. Still deciding on math and language/literacy...sigh


Any suggestions for first grade history & science?

9th grade - ABeka math and language/spelling, College level child psychology, Catholic Heritage Curriculum     for everything else, even PE

2nd grade - All Catholic Heritage material 2nd grade, reading books ABeka 2nd grade

Got the white boards, big atlas, and tablets

Still need to get a microscope, binders, folders, pencils, pens, and the like.

Music - piano, have piano like keyboard, have books

Think that covers it. Don't have report cards yet, ooops almost forgot to put them on ordering list, writing this reminds me.

It'll be a lot of fun. Looking so forward to it.

Doris Have to order the books but have them all listed already, just need to click on order. :)

For my Kindergarten DS-

Horizons Math- Kindergarten/1st.. haven't done the placement test yet but its looking like he will probably be in the 1st grade book before Christmas

McRuffy Reading

Not sure about science or social studies yet.. Don't know if I am going to buy a curriculum for these yet or just wing it. (I am a certified science and social studies teacher)


PK DD- Explode the Code A/B

Handwriting without tears

not sure about math for her yet...


Haven't bought anything yet but after my research these are what I have decided on
