Homeschool Open House

I was surfing through some of the blogs I visit and found this Homeschool Open House. There are alot of blogs signed up to share a bit about their homeschools. Over 200 now I think!!! That's alot!

I am homeschooling our son age 9 and going into grade 5.This will be our 3rd year of homeschooling. We will start our 2007 - 2008 school year in just a few weeks. Truly though I think we are always learning lots of new things everyday. I guess when I say school year I'm thinking getting the text books out.

I should say that we are blessed to borrow textbooks from the church school that he used to attend and is now closed.
Here is what we are using this year.........

Math - Journeys in Math 5 (I've looked for a website to share, but I found nothing. The series was published by Ginn & Company in 1987. Great Math book. They don't make them like this anymore. lol ;o) I did find one on ebay for $99.99 Not sure if that was a typo.)

Reading - Miracles & Milestones Another oldie but goodie. :o) I tried to link to it, but couldn't. You can find it at Adventist Book Center, by doing a search of 'Miracles & Milestones'.

Grammar - Building English Skills Again this is from the 80's, but very good! Sorry I couldn't find a link, but if you google it you should be able to find it.

Canadian History - We'll read our way through Canadian history with the help of this reading list

Science - We'll use a mixture of resources such as Considering God's Creation, Usborne books, Creation Illustrated magazine and the Internet.

Phys Ed - Bowling weekly (all year), skating weekly (October - Feb/March) swimming weekly(March/April - May)

Life Skills - household chores, etc.

I feel like I am forgetting something. lol ;o)

Now to visit those other 200+ blogs. :o)

I always like to see what others use curriculum wise. We really enjoyed using "Considering God's Creation" a couple of years ago.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
