Seems like we continually change how we homeschool, what we use, every year.
Maybe because we don’t like something we did or maybe we just don’t want to get in a rut.
Whatever it is, this year is no exception. A few changes we did this year are:
`W` is doing Composition-Rhetoric
It provides a series of themes covering description, narration, exposition, and argument. Each theme builds upon the other a little at a time. Along with the theme there are exercises designed to aide in learning the concept taught.
`D` is doing Creation Science unit studies (General, Geology, Astronomy & Anatomy).
I had previously steered clear away from unit studies. I felt they were too costly. By the time you buy everything you need. However, I was able to buy these books on sale (wonderful price), and the experiments use items easy to come by & very economic. The unit study gives ideas for Bible studies, Reading selection, Language Arts, Math Reinforcement, Science activities & experiments, Geography/History, and Art/Music. There are 3 sections divided by: K-3, 4-8, 9-12. You could actually teach it over again for each division. There is also a suggested reading list. I have been able to get most of these books through inter-library loan. All the study guides are packed with information. I like the fact that we are learning what the Creationists and the Evolutionists believe.
