Started 3rd with my oldest using Heart of Dakota for the first time, Bigger Hearts for His Glory (ages 8-10 and extension options for 11-12).  I really like it but notice there is quite a difference in the work between the previous book (Little Hearts for His Glory for ages 5-7).  My ds likes the reading portion & is very good at narration but he hates writing and we will do most work verbally and/or I will write down what he dictates to me so I can keep a record.  He is on Dreambox Learning for math and still struggling to finish 2nd grade.  His reading is above-grade and comprehension is great as well.  He has an analytical mind, he likes to build things and is a great problem solver. I have strongly considered unschooling and am just slowly making my way towards that with him while also trying to convince DH that unschooling can still have a solid education.

Have you thought of using math u see for math? He could work things out with the manipulatives and even build with them

I am using Queens. There are links from my blog. I LOVE it. My 8 year old loves it too.

I switched from HOD to Queens this year. It was a great switch for us. There is a lot less reading. The seat work is shorter and more fun. I do write down my 8 year old's narrations sometimes.

I am teaching two third graders. I use several different curriculum's but the only curriculum I use yearly is Ace; I love their math Paces. I put together my own writing, science, and social studies lessons every semester but I supplement my lessons with Time for Learning. I use Dianne Craft's Reading program for one son who is dyslexic and we just finished Hooked on Phonics for my other son. For now our bible studies consist of random devotionals that I find and like for their age group.
