Faith, Family, Love and Reviews

Finalized list of 2011-2012 curriculum

on July 21, 2011

I’m very eclectic which works well since I also do reviews and can switch and implement as needed with other curriculum through the year, however this does not play into the paper work I submit to the super of our school district and for all intents and purposes this is what we will be using this year.

If you see a non hyperlinked title or author please click on the image to be directed to my Amazon affiliate if you want to purchase.

I’m not listing every single literature selection (I’ve been faulted on this by a reader however I’ll give you a few selections we’ll be aiming to cover this year).  So here is my list of intended curriculum:

Okay here are some of the literature selections I plan on including this year, this is not all inclusive but will give you an idea of what I plan for this year:

Black Beauty by Anna Sewell

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White

Animal Farm by George Orwell (Hannah, maybe)


The Last Days of Socrates by Plato

Greek Myths (Hannah, maybe)

I think this will give a good idea of what we plan to be studying over the next school year, it does appear I take a more Classical approach to education but we don’t do a lot of oral work – however I do plan on adding more into Hannah’s day.  Hannah does not do Latin, but Bethanne seems to thrive in fact she wanted me to add French into the school year but I decided working on English reading/writing as well as Spanish and Latin would be enough for this year – at least for mom LOL

I haven’t left Christian out, who will be working on a K/1st grade level, but I don’t have to notify for him this year but with him I plan on using the following:
