Caitlin 2016/2017 School Classes Grade 7:
Math: Saxon 7/6 with supplement of Prodigy Math game, once or twice a week.
History: World History with focus on Geography. I will be posting some fun things to do for this class.
Spanish 1: Along with textbook, and workbook, there is a really fun app she likes.
All other subjects will be grade 8 Alpha Omega including Bible. I got a really good deal, but it was a grade higher but I have heard they are not real challenging, so it should be OK. She could use a good challenge anyways. I will be giving her books to read, but have not decided yet, besides Ann of Green Gables. I am looking at her taking at least one FLVS class next year. DJ will take his second year of Japanese in his senior year. Both kids are deciding what they want to do with 4H, and I don't want them overwhelmed with activities anyways. Caitlin will resume Gymnastics in October, and DJ of course guitar.
DJ 2016/2017 School Classes Grade 11:
World History: CLEP study guide with exam at end of year, will also be doing fun activities with me
English/Language Arts with focus on Writing
Chemistry with Labs
Digital Media 1- full credit certificate course with FLVS
Psych 1- half credit elective course can also count as 1/2 credit of History with FLVS
Typing will be squeezed in somewhere, probably 2nd half of year as a 1/2 credit elective. He really needs this class. He has no clue about typing rules, such as for spacing.
So far DJ has chosen Dracula to read, and I still have to consider which ones I want him to read. I am leaning towards classical literature as opposed to newer options.
