Weekly Wrap Up

An overview of our homeschool Curriculum

Before our family gathering and before breakfast we read the Proverb of the day and a couple of Psalms.

The Mystery of History Volume IIIn the Morning we have a family gathering during which time we cover some subjects together:

  • We are using Mystery of History Volume 2 along with History in the Woods Middle Ages projects.
  • For Science we use Answers in Genesis God's Design for Heaven and Earth. We absolutely loved doing this series last year and I expect we will enjoy it again this year!
  • Baptist Catechism we use Truth & Grace Books this covers memory verses, hymns & catechism questions based on the an adjusted Westminster Confession. 
  • We also do IEW Linguistic Development in the morning and even our 3 year old twins have gotten in on the act memorizing poems. 
  • Read Alouds- this is the time we have family read Alouds , we will start the Bronze Bow and Trial & Triumph next week. 
  • US State Study Notebook 
  • In the Spring (MOH Vol 2 is 28 weeks long) we will do Soli Gloria Deo Map Skills

Map SkillsAfter the Family Gathering we start on our individualized  lessons I try to meet the individual needs of our children without killing the teacher in the process. We basically have the curriculums that have worked well for us in the past and then if a child is struggling with that curriculum we look for something that is a better fit. For instance our 7th grader has mild autism and the repetitive, predictable nature of ACE is a great fit for her so she does several of their wonderful curriculums while our other children do other things.


  • Our 3rd & 5th grader are doing Christian Light Education Math along with Life of Fred Math for added depth.
  • Our 7th grader is doing ACE Math she also does a consumer math. 
  • All of them are doing Xtra Math  an online drill

  1. You'll have to tell me how MOH 2 is - it took us 2yrs to get thru Vol 1 !!

    Have a great year - visiting from WUHS

  2. We do it in our co-op so we are able to make it through in a year plus we use the Audios. Without the encouragement of the co-op it would surely take us two years also.So far it's been really good. And it si only 28 weeks so we will get a chance to a little geography at the end of the year. Thank you for visiting!


Thank you so much for your encouraging words!
