Our Curriculum Choices for 2012-2013

I'm a little late hopping in on the Back to Homeschool Blog Hop BUT, here we are. It's been a busy house the last few weeks. School is well under way, and we are moving right along in our studies. This is our 4th year homeschooling. I've finally learned what MATH we like, and I'm beginning to think that last years choices for English/ Reading were better option - but for now, the kids are loving what they are doing. So, as long as they are learning, and having fun, we'll keep on with what we are using. Here's our list!

Aaron - Age 9 - 4th grade
Rod & Staff Reading 4
Christian Light Reading (CLE) 4
Math U See - Delta
R&S English 3/4
All About Spelling Level 3
Handwriting Without Tears Cursive

Rebekah - Age 7 - 2nd Grade
(has some learning disabilities)
Rod & Staff Reading/ Phonics 1 and CLE Reading 2
Math U See - Beta
BJU English 2
All About Spelling Level 2
Handwriting Without Tears

Hannah - Age 5 - 1st Grade
RCLE Learning To Read
All About Reading Level 1
Math U See - Alpha
All About Spelling Level 1

Matthew and Benjamin - Age 3 - PreK
Rod & Staff Workbooks for 3&4 yr olds
All About Reading Pre-Level
Explode the Code Primary
Learning videos. =)

For History/ Geogrpahy we are using Road Trip USA by Confessions of a Homeschooler
Science - Apologia - Exploring Creation with Astronomy
Bible - Christian Liberty Press Studying God's Word B - and will start Apologia's "Who is God?" as soon as it arrives in the mail.

There is is - our current school list! We have double reading programs for the older 3 because we already owned our CLE, and we really like both of the programs we are using. Because of that, we chose to switch back and forth with the readings we are using from day to day so that we can enjoy both!
Have a great day!


  1. That's a good looking class that you have. Lots of fun options. You guys are going to have a blast with the astronomy.

  2. Oh my goodness, your kids are so cute! I just love the picture at the top of your blog!!!

    We used Apologia's Astronomy last year with similar ages and everyone loved it, including mom (and even dad joined in sometimes). Your kids will really enjoy it!

    I have twins too (and one's a Benjamin), they are almost 17 months! It still amazes me that the Lord blessed us with 2 at once!!
