Homeschooling Moms Homeschooling Moms

So, what does your curriculum line up look like and what grades are you teaching this fall?

Posted by   + Show Post

Down to the wire ladies - well into July!

What does everyone's curricula line up look like and for what grades? I've almost finished ordering (can't believe I forgot science!) and things are rolling in (poor mail man!).

What are you most EXCITED to teach this fall?

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

We are doing ABeka full curriculum for both kids...1st and 2nd grade.  I am excited to open the boxes which have been sitting my living room for 2 mos already.  I told myself that I wouldn't open them until both kids were done with school....the last one is finishing up late next week.
