Eek my little guy is going to be in the fourth grade and I’m finding that when you jump out of the early elementary age, then you may need to step things up. I know he can handle a little more challenge so this year I’m prepping some fun history and science projects for him. If you’re not sure, what you’ll use for him take a look at my list of homeschool curriculum for grade 4.
Gathering some materials for this year’s homeschooling? Check our Best Homeschool Curriculum blog post and find out what curriculums we recommend.
He loves those subjects and wants to do more with them and has requested so. We stuck to our old curriculum but found the last half of the year a bit of a bore at least for him. He coasted through it and I know he’s capable of more.
We’ll be adding some coding this year since he’s played around in Scratch. He wants to design Minecraft mods so I’m still deciding what program we’re going to go with for that.

Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
Notice Alice in Wonderland in our read-aloud list, I’ve been trying to read this to him for the last two years but he loses interest when I gave it to him so I’m going to read it this year with him. I know he’ll love it once we get into it.
I’m hoping to find the Howard Pyle books on audio but I read them with my oldest and he loved them. My book list is short but I leave room for my son to find his own books and my selection may change after reading the books. If it’s a series he may want to read all of the books in the series or books by the same author.
I just need to order the math workbooks and put our science together so he can get started. We’ll be starting school next week and I desperately need to organize our bookshelves then.
