Everyone keeps talking about having their plans all set for next year...I think I just started figuring out this year!
So next year, my oldest will be 12, chronologically a 7th grader...and my youngest will be 11, chronologically a 6th grader. However, they should be more like 8th and 5th graders at that point.
The only thing I know is that we will be moving on to Middle Ages for history. I have no idea where to go with science (they just finished Ellen McHenry's The Elements and will do Carbon now and will finish that by the summer)...math...I may see if I can get the older one into an online algebra class, and the younger one into an online math as well. We have a free online charter school in our state, we haven't tried it yet, but I think it could be worth a try for them.
Does anyone have any advice? Anything you think they really should learn next year? Any amazing curriculum? I still work outside of the home, I'm usually gone about 30 hours a week, so I like to have some independent stuff for them to do.
