Natalie is entering 7th grade in August. (Why does just typing those words make my hands shake?) This year will be the first year in a long time that our homeschooling plans are significantly different. I have always taught science and history as group subjects with all of the kids together. Now that she’s in middle school, I’m going to require more of her in those subject areas, and she will be working on her own.
Here are the programs we will be using for Natalie this upcoming year.
Realms of Gold, Volume 2 – This is an anthology of all the short stories, essays, poems, speeches, and autobiographical selections that the Core Knowledge series recommends for 7th grade. She’ll also be reading Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
I’m also going to be using two other study guides with her: Introduction to Poetry: Forms and Elements Study Guide and Literary Genres.
Shurley English 7 – This is a grammar and composition program.
Latina Christiana 1 – Natalie, Noah, and I will all be doing this.
