2017-2018 5th Grade Curriculum Choices

2017-2018 5th Grade Curriculum Choices

My second oldest son is starting 5th grade this year... He is still figuring out  where his interests lie, and what he wants to pursue.  He is most definitely still interested in birds, however, so is SUPER excited about science this year!!!

5th Grade Curriculum Choices:
BibleApologia What We Believe Series - This year we are starting with Volume 2, Who am I?
LiteraturePrairie Primer, with lots of other stuff added
WritingShurley English, Level 4
SpellingAll About Spelling, Level 3 and 4
ScienceApologia - Zoology I
MathMath U See: Delta
Geography: Finishing up Asia and then starting Europe, hopefully in January
HistoryMystery of History Volume 4 and Time Travelers for more in depth on the wars
Civics: Amanda Bennett's American Government Unit Study with more added :)
Other: Still hoping to add Violin and Woodworking
Extracurricular Activities: Homeschool group, 4-H, and Birding

We are still looking into the various groups for birding, as well as where he can learn more about woodworking.  Right now he leans some towards being an architect, and at other times being a general contractor.  (There are other days he wants to be a farmer.)  With his interest in wood, however, we will be putting him to work with the multiple projects we have coming up for the homestead.  Everything is a work in progress ;)
