Well, it’s spring, and aside from thinking about gardens, birds, bugs, and warm weather, my thoughts start turning to preparing for the next school year.
So far, I have my DS’ Classic Literature:
- Death on the Nile – Agatha Christie (he loves her work)
- Around the World in 80 days – Jules Verne
- Treasure Island – Robert Louis Stevenson
- Robinson Crusoe – Daniel Defoe
- David Copperfield – Charles Dickens
- Death Be Not Proud – John Gunther
- The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway
- Huckleberry Finn – Mark Twain
- Swiss Family Robinson – Johann Wyss
- The Red Badge of Courage – Stephen Crane
- Thirteen at Dinner – Agatha Christie
He’ll be working on Shakespeare for “Summer School”.
Another biggie – he has signed up to be a Full-Time Pioneer!!
He hasn’t gotten approved yet, but I’m planning his schooling around it, so we’re ready when/if he is!
His science will be Biology, and I’ll also have him reading the Creation/Evolution book.
His history will be American History, and I think we’ll use the Proclaimers book for some of that, too.
Some of the materials we’ve been covering this year will still be used next year.
I haven’t really begun thinking about the girls’ curriculum… well, not enough to discuss, anyway.
