I mentioned the Hop the other day, and I am happy to share my curriculum for my kids. I love the order in the photo above. Our homeschool will not look like that, but it will be filled with some wonderful, classic stuff this year…stuff we can read on the couch!!

Today, I am posting the curriculum for Nick. Nick is in High School this year (9th/10th).

    I so like ALEKS! Did you see the 2 for 1 sale that is on right now? Nutrition 101 is really interesting too.

      Hi, Cynthia! No, I did not realize they had a deal–I need to check that out–I am amazed at how well N is doing with ALEKS. It took all the struggle out of math for us:) With Nutrition 101, we keep coming back to it–over and over and learning a bit each time. I like that. I need to come by your blog and see youe=r curriculum as I am trying to go more classical with my youngest…

  2. Hey! Excellent list! Just wanted to run something by you. My oldest daughter will be doing Apologia Biology online in the Fall also.

    We were introduced to a free online Apologia Biology class. The site is: http://www.virtualhomeschoolgroup.com

    Just thought I’d share.
