This is my 9th year of homeschooling. People frequently ask what grade my girls are in but that's not a simple question. Their test scores state that they're at a college level in some subjects and at the same time they detest math like their mom.;)
Oh, but I do love choosing curriculum. Here are our high school choices for this year:
Starting Points Worldview Primer by David Quine Amanda is taking this class and loves it. It's intense and time consuming but she's learning so much. Highly recommend.
Key to Algebra- Just bought this set last week. Love, love, love it. Wish I'd learned Algebra this way. Very user friendly and thorough. Highly recommend.
Guest Hollow High School Biology- I adore Guest Hollow. This homeschool mom is a creative genius that teaches just the way I love. Great books, multiple choices for experiments, oodles of options. Highly recommend.
Charlotte Mason Pictures in Cursive- After attending the Teach them Diligently convention this summer I'm all about Charlotte Mason. I want my girls to be able to write in cursive. Yes, it's all about computers these days but I want my children to be able to sign their names and handwrite letters as well. Beautiful pictures and quick copy work. Highly recommend.
Nutrition 101: Choose Life!- Purchased this at the Teach them Diligently convention. Gorgeous pictures and I loved the content. This book encourages health with anatomy, recipes, nutrition and education. Can't wait to start using it.
Dave Raymond's American History- I reviewed this curriculum over the summer and absolutely loved it. Exciting and thought-provoking video lectures, student created portfolio, amazing projects, etc. I'm learning as much as my daughter! Highly recommend.
Language Lessons for the High School student - Great grammar review. Short and complete. Highly recommend.
Marmee's Kitchen Primer- I'll be using this with both my girls for Home Economics. The class I laughed about in high school. When would I ever need to know about Home Economics?! 4 years of French were much more valuable and are used each and every day in my life.
I've started the daunting task of creating my daughter's high school transcript this year. It's actually not too difficult, once you get your head around it.;) This is what else she has going on, just so the world knows that she's well rounded- lol!
