Time4Learning: Language Arts and Science
Evan Moor: History books shown below. She really likes these and retains the info well.
Writing: Creative writing once a week, to be posted to her blog. Topic TBD by myself
Spelling: AAAspell.com This website worked wonders for her last year
Reading: Even though reading comprehension is done on T4L I will probably have her read other books as well.
Math: We will be focusing on Math a lot. I have decided to do Saxon 54, Life of Fred, and the Math card game we are currently playing. I will share that on Friday.
It seems like a lot of Math, but she needs a lot of Math right now. That is my main priority and focus. On Friday, I will also share the standards I want each of them to accomplish. I still have to finish them, and update or change things. I am not making a calendar this year. The last few years we did not stick to it anyways. We are doing Run Club every Wed, and that is all I am certain of right now. Time 4 Learning does Ancient Civilizations for 5th grade. Caitlin did this in the 4th grade. That is why I opted for the Evan Moor books. There are a couple of extra books shared, that I am still considering, but have not decided. Right now I am holding off on the 4H project books, until I know which book our group decides the group is going to be doing. I also like this Florida Unit Study, and she will most likely be doing that a well for History. We will also be doing an Art curriculum this year, on Tuesdays in the evening. She will be doing a basic cooking class in the evenings as well. Here is the link to the cooking lessons.
