Curriculum Planning for 2014/2015

Since we have recently received our tax refund, it's time for me to start thinking about what curriculum to purchase for next school year. I will have a 7th grader, a 6th grader, a 4th grader, and a 3 year old.

We have been using mainly Abeka curriculum along with Schoolhouse Crew review items.

I do plan on purchasing for my 7th grader, the Abeka 7th grade curriculum. He is a year ahead in math and will be using Pre- Algebra for his math. He will continue to use Mango (review coming this weekend) for his foreign language.

My 6th grader will also use mostly Abeka with whatever Schoolhouse Crew reviews we get chosen for. he will continue to use mango for his foreign language.

My 4th grader has made me rethink (from this year while she has been doing 3rd grade) what curriculum fits best with her learning style. while I will use Abeka for cursive, history, science, and language; I now know she needs something different for math and spelling. I'm not sure what I will end up purchasing for those two subjects, but I have been researching and have a few possibilities. For spelling, I am waiting to read my fellow crewmates reviews about Spelling You See. I am also looking into Math U See for her math curriculum.

My 3 year old will be learning her ABC's, learning to read, and learning to write. She already knows how to count and knows some of her colors. She does know her alphabet, but can't recognize the letters yet.

I hope to have my choices finalized in a few weeks.

Valentine's Day Boogie Wipes Giveaway



I am sharing a great giveaway ~ the Use Boogie Wipes and Really Smell the Roses Giveaway.

I first learned about Boogie Wipes when my almost 3 year old was about 6 months. It was her first winter and she had a cold. She kept turning away and crying when using tissues and her nose was raw. I saw the Boogie Wipes at the store and decided to give them a try. They helped my little one so much that I eventually signed up to be an ambassador. I tell and share product with others about these great wipes.















Now for the giveaway ~ Use the rafflecopter below to enter. Open to US residents only. Have fun and be creative.
