Yesterday, I told you about all the fun books and supplies we are using this year for our Group Subjects. Today, I’m going to tell you what each kid is using for their Independent Subjects.
Connor ~ 4th Grade
Math: Teaching Textbooks 4 – we started with Teaching Textbooks last year, and it has been wonderful. Math used to be a fight, but no more! (We just use the CD-ROM, not the workbooks.)
Spelling: Spectrum Vocabulary 4
Handwriting: Star Wars Cursive – because Star Wars is his favorite.
Composition: Prompt, Plan, & Write 5
Other: Spectrum Test Prep 4 – to prepare for the inevitable standardized tests someday.
Lia ~ 2nd Grade
Math: Teaching Textbooks 3
Reading: Daily Reading 2
Spelling: Sylvan Spelling 3
Handwriting: Cursive Handwriting Workbook for Girls – she just loves this book!
Composition: Daily 6-trait Writing 2
Sophie ~ Kindergarten
Math: Horizons K
Handwriting: A Reason For Handwriting
So that’s it! All the books we are using for 2015! Well, maybe not ALL of them. We do love the library, and we are also flexible if we decide something isn’t working for us. But this is the plan. Today was Day 1 of school, and things are going very well so far!
