A spin off on my "I hate pulling it all together."

Would you all look over what I chose?  My daughter doesn't like text books, but likes work books.  My son loves being read to doing just about anything at the moment.

Daughter

History - Medieval from Beautiful Feet

Math - Saxon Algebra 1/2

Science - ScienceSaurus with DayBooks

Writing - Jump In!

Grammar - Easy Grammar Plus

Literature plus study guides - Anne of Green Gables, Call of the Wild, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Christmas Carol, The Giver, The Hobbit, Little Women, The Secret Garden, Witch of Blackbird Pond and A Wrinkle in Time.

~update~. We are also planning on watching movies of most of the books we read.  To discuss the difference between them. 

Son

History - 2 years Early American from Beautiful Feet

Phonics - McRuffy Phonics

Science - McRuffy Science

Math - Math in Focus K

Handwriting - D'Nealian Handwirting

And lots of reading books.

Hehe.  I wish I could do what you do.  Since i can't, I try to let my daughter pick what she wants to learn, and I try to find what fits.

You know what? That's pretty much what I do as well, except its daily instead of them choosing a curriculum. That's the beauty of HS...finding what works for your unique family and having the freedom to choose it!

Those are just the books we are going to study, not all the books she will read.  I'm going to have her pick out something to read while reading things she doesn't really want to.  So she will have something to look forward to.

Looks great.  We just listened to a wrinkle in time and my sons loved it.  My son has read most of Roald Dahl books many times over.  I have to admit I don't plan out books.  When I read one I just go pick another.  We are currently working on heidi.
