2013 – 2014 Plan

I was just cleaning up my blog “dashboard” and stumbled on this old post that I apparently never posted!  So I am extremely late adding this, but I still wanted to include it (so I can look back some day and say, oh yeah, so that’s what we did…you know one day in the future when all of these years are a hazy fog!)…so here is what we did for 2013-2014 (I apologize that not everything is linked…could be why it never got posted!)…

Joseph and William and sometimes Andrew:

Faith: Catholic Mosaic books and copywork; Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (in our home with Moira Farrell’s handbook);

(Science and History: We are following the recommendations from The Well Trained Mind, with an emphasis on living books and narrations; since this was our first year formally studying history, I also used RC History’s Syllabus and Lesson plans)

Science: Biology (including animals, human body, and plants)

World History:  Ancient History following RC History plans and supplementing with The Story of the World

American History: Beautiful Feet

Memory Work: Classically Catholic Memory

Art: Picture Study (covering 1 artist every 6 weeks);  Artistic Pursuits Book 1 (K – 3)

Music: Composer Study (covering 1 composer every 6 weeks); recorder lessons

Geography: A Child’s Geography of the World by V.M. Hillyer, supplementing with Children Just Like Me, What the World Eats, Material World and Stories from Around the World.  Map Drills depending on which continent we’re studying (using Uncle Josh’s Outline Maps and Sonya Shafer’s method) and Joseph’s favorite part of Geography: Eat Around the World

Handwriting: Memoria Press New American Cursive II
