Our Homeschool Curriculum – Grade 8 and Grade 1

I’m finalizing my plans for our school year and I love getting down where I can see everything. I love reading other people’s homeschool curriculum plans as well. This year I have an 8th grader, this terrifies me very much because I’m just so nervous about whether or not I have prepared him enough for high school. There is definitely a lot that we need to work on in terms of time management and note taking. I really want him to own his school work and create a schedule that works for both of us.

I have 3 math programs listed for him because we just discovered Tabletclass Math at the end of last year. He really likes it but I had to back up and review some topics before we could progress in it. My son also loves Life of Fred so he wanted to continue on with the series. I don’t believe that the books alone work well for him as a standalone so we will work through the Saxon 8/7 test booklet to see where in the book he will need to start.  I want him to continue on with Tabletclass math and see how it goes for him because it is working for him. I think we will work on Life of Fred in December and the end of the school year to over the summer as  break from our regular program.

  1. My husband lost his job in May, and we are expecting #2 this fall. Any little bit would help right now!

  2. Miriam Matheny says:

    This giveaway would help us tremendously in preparing for the arrival of our baby boy.

  3. will help a lot since I don’t work making money last more it’s very hard this days

  4. Mandy Martin says:

    A friend of mine told me of this “bless a homeschooler giveaway” and I immediately visited to find out more and entered. This would help so much right now. My mom is having major surgery and this is very high risk for her with her health issues so I have to uproot my children and move them 2300 miles away so that we can be with her during her surgery and help her during her recovery. As a result I have to take my children out of school and switch to homeschooling so that they don’t miss out on any education. My children are very much okay with this because they want to be there for their grandma even though they will have to leave all their friends. I am a disabled mom of 4 so funds are very tight but in order to take care of my entire family I have to do what is best for everyone. I am so greatful for my wonderful children who are so willing to make this move for their grandma. I am very proud of all 4 of them.

  5. Jessica Snow says:

    I lost my job this past June, due to being ill. So this would help greatly with bills that are falling behind.
    Thanks for the giveaway! =)

  6. We are saving up for a house so this would bless us tremendously to give us extra money to put toward school supplies, some extra pieces of curriculum and organization for this year.

  7. Emily Suthoff says:

    We just brought home #3, so every little but helps.

  8. With 7 kids (6 that are school age). This would help us round out and finish up our curriculum picks for this year!

  9. I just decided at the last minute to homeschool my youngest so this would help with that (and supplemental material) a lot!
