2015-2016 school year plan at a glance

This year we are going to try something different.  I am actually going into the school year with a PLAN!!  I am very much a fly by the seat of my pants girl. But I am not sure how good that is for the education of my children.   Here is the mess I am working with.




Math we are using Saxon
Reading we are using All About Reading
Handwriting we are using A Reason For Handwriting
We will be using Classical Conversations for Bible, Science, History, Geography, Latin, Math, English Grammar, and Fine Arts,

We are covering  
 World History: Empires, people, and Counties ( ancient through modern)
Geography Africa and The World
Science Biology and Earth Science ( completing experiments and projects)
English Grammar Verbs and Prepositions 
Latin Noun endings (declensions)

Art Masters, Drawing 
Music Composers, Music theory  


I am looking to add a typing program ( we haven't decided yet)

We are also going to complete Little House Books By Laura Ingalls Wilder
