"Not" Back to School Blog Hop 2012 : Curriculum Week

This has been the fastest summer ever for our family … where does the time go? I am joining in this week in the annual Not Back to School Blog Hop – hosted by the iHomeschool Network. Join in on the fun by heading over there and linking back to your own blog or just reading through all the posts so far. I always enjoy reading what others are doing!
Not Back to School Blog Hop
Thankfully, I had a plan in place for the 2012 – 2013 school year in May, so no need to stress about that over the fun summer months.
Here is our plan for the year ….
Bible ~ Apologia’s “Who Am I and What am I Doing Here” from the What We Believe Series
History/Science ~ My Father’s World – Countries and Cultures – we are trying something new this year and doing this study with another family. We will divide up the teaching between the two of us.  We will take one day a week to complete everything scheduled for that particular week in the lesson plan. I am sure there will be a learning curve as we figure out the best way to fit everything in but, I am really looking forward to this opportunity.
Devin {5th grade}
Math ~ Abeka
Language and Spelling ~ Abeka
Reading ~ Abeka
Handwriting ~ Handwriting Without Tears, Cursive Review
