I have divided our curriculum by subjects for easier searching:
Math: We are using Easy Peasy Middle School Math Step 2 for math this year.
Writing: We are using Writing With Skill, Level 1: Instructor Text (The Complete Writer).
Language Arts: Intermediate Language Arts Program My 8th grader finished Writing with skill, and so we moved on to do a few weeks of EP Langauge arts program. He detests it, however as it covers diction and grammar I really appreciate it. He is learning a lot!
Spelling: Spelling Workout, Level E
Grammar: First Language Lessons
Reading: They were able to choose their own books this year. Please see the bottom of this page for books read during the school year.

Art: We are using Easy Peasy Early American Art
