HomeSchool Agenda for 08-09

agenda photo

I have set our official date for school as September 15th. My daughter's birthday is September 2nd and so that gives us a whole week to enjoy the Labor Day holiday and her birthday and then another week for me to plan for school and recuperate.

This year we will be using:


Adventist Sonlight Curriculum-This curriculum uses the color coding of the Rainbow to cover all subjects

Red-Health

Orange-Math

Yellow-Music

Green-Nature

Blue-History/Geography/Prophecy

Indigo-Language

Violet-Voice


The Curriculum is Bible based and so we cover Bible everyday along with two other subjects. The lessons are made for the family and so everyone learns together.



Math U SEE-We use this as a supplement to our main curriculum. I like the math in our main curriculum because it teaches math from a Biblical perspective. I also love Math U See

Italics Handwriting- I absolutely love this handwriting program. I love the fact that the print and cursive are very closely related and follow the natural flow of the hand.

Charlotte Mason- I will be using Charlotte Mason's method's of habit training as found in Laying Down The Rails-A Charlotte Mason Habits Handbook. We also use Charlotte Mason's Scripture Memory System
