Last year we used Sonlight (secularized) and we really enjoyed all the book selections. After two years of creating my own curriculum it was really nice to have a planned out schedule. However, I decided this year to try out Pandia Press History Odyssey. I really like the Classical approach to history rotation, History Odyssey is already secular, and the book selections are similar to those used in Sonlight. I really had a difficult time making this decision. Hopefully I made the right choice. We are staying with Math U See, Noeo Science, Growing with Grammar, Artistic Pursuits, and The Outdoor Hour. We needed to add in spelling, reading, and geograghy programs since these were included in Sonlight last year. I also added in some resources for Art and Music Appreciation, something we have struggled to included in previous years.
Little M - Preschool
I did not purchase any curriculum for Little M for preschool this year. He will continue with the letter of the week that we started before the summer. He also listens in to the poetry and world folk tales that we read together in the morning. Here are links to the websites I use for free resources and printables for him.
