(which we blew through...we were done by January except for a handful of lessons I was saving for Lent/Easter, in hindsight I should have started him with 1st grade religion).  But like you, I'm looking for something that teaches a progression of art, so I appreciate the feedback!

 


If you liked Seton Art 1, you'll probably like CHC's A Year With God as it's a lot of the same, but more projects for older kiddos. We have both and do a little from each.

 

I'm still on the hunt for a good art program as my dd REALLY likes art and is pretty good at it for being 4.5yo.

RightStart Math

Continuing on with Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading accompanied by BOB books and Explode the Code

Handwriting Without Tears

Story of the World Ancients

Life Science/Biology using Handbook of Nature Study and Lesson Pathways as guides

Lots of reading/read-alouds

 

we are ecclectic/welltrained mind/charlotte mason - if you CAN be all three of those at the same time?!?!?!?!?!

I'm still in the thinking stage.

RightStart Math Beta and the rest of BFSU for sure. I want to start French but not sure what to use. Cursive, geography, writing stories and poems, increasing her reading stamina (longer novels).

We did History Odyssey Ancients this year and I want to go more in depth with the same subjects this year.

The problem I'm having is that I want to buy/do fun stuff but can't really find anything in Canada. For example, I think dd1 would really love Top Secret Adventures, but they don't ship to Canada. I need inspiration for how to go about these subjects. We work best with things laid out in detail.

I think in the end I'm going to have to take some time to sit down and write/plan out my own stuff for us to do.
