Let the Planning Begin.
Curriculum planning is one of my favorite jobs as a homeschool mom.
I have eight classes in mind right now...this is too many. Emma is a doll of a student...but I think to cover things in depth and well I better think about thinning.
Geometry- Christian Light or Chalkdust
History- 400-1600 Lots of books!
Lewis/Tolkien Writing Class -Oxford Tutorial
Art- Exploring Art -Oak Meadow School or Potter's School Art
Science-Apologia Science or Physical Science NorthStar
English- Warriners Grammar and composition 5
Logic- Traditional Logic
We have not used any correspondence courses but this will be the year to try it out; now that our computer is fast, fast, fast.
I think I will let Emma choose between Logic and Art as her 'elective'. I know what I would take :o)
I took Art History when I was a Junior in college and was fortunate to go to Florence Italy two weeks later...It was the coolest thing ever.
Everything I saw in the books was right there in front of me.
Here is a funny Grandma Hansen story about the David...
I took three photos of the David while in Florence. He is very tall. The pictures are full length. David is naked.
As I was showing Grandma the photos of my trip she remarked, "One picture of him would have been enough."
I had almost forgotten he was naked...oops...Sorry Grandma :o)
Don't be shy
