by BoobahFebruary 8, 2013 at 9:07 PMWe are on a different track than most, but right now, Roman numerals, the planets, fairy tales, baking, knitting, cooking, how to do laundry start to finish. In a week we will be working on addition/multiplication/subtraction and division.

We hit spelling, reading and math really hard here. For math we are working on division and fractions and my DS is working on finishing the captain underpants series. Science we are currently talking about dinosaurs because that is what interest him. We also work a lot of geography and globe/map work.
Overall, I think you have a well rounded curriculum!
Birds, Eli Whitney and America's expansion in the 1800s, fractions, beginning archery, as well as lots of free reading time - he loves non-fiction and right now is studying a book about teeth! We have Life and Planet Earth DVDs that we watch to correspond with our science (we've been watching the Birds movie lately). We just finished a lesson on Vikings. Writing is our weak area so I am letting him make Valentine's for co-op and Catechism kids (19 total) to count for writing. He has a co-op art class and we listen to a variety of classical music throughout the week.
