The Homeschool Review Crew is having a Blog Hop this week for Back to School time! Look at the end of this post for a link to hop on over to see what everyone else wrote about!

 

Wow! Can you believe that we are starting another school year already? Where did the time go? This year we have an 8th grader and a 3rd grader.

 

It seems as though we just started homeschooling our oldest and now I am putting together his 8th grade year! Yikes! He's going to be in high school next year and I am looking at college admission requirements so that I can make sure that I set up his high school to meet them. It's a little bit scary to tell you the truth.

Bible

Wanting to really give him the information and help that he needs to own his faith, we will be working through the following books by Jack Cottrell:

13 Lessons on Grace

His Truth: Scriptural Truths About Basic Doctrines

Faith's Fundamentals: Seven Essentials of Christian Belief

The Holy Spirit: A Biblical Study

 

Grammar

Analytical Grammar Season 3. He completed Seasons 1 & 2 last year so this will complete the book for him.

 

Reading

In order to prepare him for books that he will need to read for high school, he is reading a book a month. I have put together a list of books that he can choose from. He chooses a book to read each month. Then he completes a project of his choosing that best represents the book. He will then complete an oral book report describing the book and displaying the project that he completed.

 

 

3rd Grade Curriculum

 

Math

We do not have a set curriculum for Math in 3rd grade. There are so many resources online that I can get for free in order to piece together what he needs to learn this year. He will be working through multiplication, division, fractions, measurement, time, and money. 

 

History

He listens along with his brother to America the Beautiful by Notgrass.com.

What's the Bible All About

I love this book! I used it with our oldest and now it is our youngest's turn. It goes through each book of the Bible and gives so much information, including: author, location in the Bible, main characters, and then a summary of the entire book.

 

 

 

Spanish

Whistlefritz

This will be a "hit and miss" sort of thing for us this year as he has so much else that he's working through. I'm going to really try to fit it in as he wants to learn it.
