2014-2015 Curriculum Picks

I can't believe it's time to start this school year already.  I'm just not ready.  We have been in the states for three months, living with family.  Hopefully next week, we'll be moving into a house, and then I'm hoping we can get organized and into a good routine.  I have a plan for our school work this year, just no plan as to when we'll start! : )

I learned so much about classical education this past year, and I'm so thankful for all the resources and people who have poured into me to help me refine what we're doing.  This coming year, I am grouping everything into three categories: Language, Logic, and Content.  So for this year in Preedy Academy, we'll be using:

In Language:
-McGuffey Readers
-Beginning Reasoning and Reading
-New American Cursive
-All About Spelling Levels 4 and 5*
-Classical Writing Aesop A/B

In Logic:
-Math-U-See Gamma and Delta
-Song School Latin 2 (this is arguable both language and logic)
-Yamaha Piano lessons

In Content:
-Daily Bible readings with Westminster Catechism songs and Training Hearts, Teaching Minds by Starr Mead
-Tapestry of Grace Year 4 Upper Grammar!**
-Harmony Fine Arts Year 4: Modern Times
-Apologia Chemistry and Physics

We're also getting an awesome school room in our new house.  The house has a small basement that is one large room.  It walks out to the backyard, and is really sunny with a fireplace on one side.  I've got big plans for this room, its going to be the happiest room in the house! :)  A very Pinterest inspired school/play/life room!  Pictures coming soon! :) It's going to be a great year, our first year homeschooling in America! Yipee! : )

**I'm so excited to be in the process of becoming a Tapestry Advisor!  I'll post more about that as I work through the program!
