I thought I would share the materials that we are "starting" our year with. We all know as homeschoolers, things change as we adjust to our children's needs. But so far these have been a good fit for Ms. Caty.
Now these are not all typical 4th grade level items since Caty is slightly delayed in math and reading (but almost caught up). But she's on grade level with other subjects.
Life of Fred - We started at basic for her early in the summer to help her get caught up. It's definitely clicking. She'll be on track by winter at her current rate.
Math Lesson for a Living Education - Book 3
And as she finishes her phonics review, we are going to work on just basic spelling lists. I found some fun Dollar Tree books that will help her with that. If she makes the progress I am expecting, she'll start Spelling You See by January and be up to grade level soon.
Language Smarts - Level E
From Adam to Us - Part 1 Creation to Cathedrals
Let's Go Geography
Draw Write Now Series
We will be doing Science Club again this year. Various topics would be animal adaptations, habitats, chemistry and oceanography to name a few topics. We meet weekly.
Spanish 1- Middlebury Interactive
Caty has asked to take drum lessons. So we are working on getting her into a drum program near us. She also will continue active in American Girl Book Club, 4H and Girl Scouts. We'll also have a bunch of field trips to go along with various studies. For Sports, she just finished competitive cheer. She'll be continuing in Bowling, Basketball cheerleading, and Youth Basketball. So we definitely have a full schedule!!
