Looks good to me other than you might add more about Science.  How many lessons, any experiments etc.

 Yes he will do some book work then he is going to have to build different structers built out of different stuff to hold different weight and such. Plan to show him different buildings (get books out about historical buildings and what not) and then maybe even get him to build one of them (pyrminds or the leaning tower of pisa or which ever) out of sugar cubes or toothpicks and marshmellows...

This is the bare bones...I have to/plan to add a lot more...

I'm so glad we don't work with a teacher.   Having four kids from 1-11 would be REALLY hard to keep up with that schedule.

We do lots of combined things and projects and more.  Plus, with the baby, I'm needing to be flexible.   We have a little bit of school on Saturdays and Sundays sometimes because of it.

 I wanted to stick close to what they learn in public school just in case he has to go back next year.
