For the third post in our series highlighting the resources our Homeschool Compass Team is choosing for their own students, today we hear from Venus. Venus is a long-time homeschool mom who graduated her firstborn in 2018 and has a tenth grader (and a cat or two) still schooling at home. Here’s what Venus has selected for curriculum this year:
For spelling I like All About Spelling. We’ll be using Levels 5 and 6 this year.
This year we’ll be using Apologia’s American Literature course along with Sharon Watson’s writing textbook, The Power in Your Hands: Writing Non-Fiction in High School. We might scale back the amount of work if it gets to be too much, or I might pick and choose assignments since these are both full-year courses.
We’re using Notgrass for history, not the literature component which we’ve done in the past.
Depending on what is available, my son might participate in Gymja warrior, Boy Scouts, possibly Sea Scouts or an art class.
