One of the biggest challenges of Homeschooling and Working is finding curricula that will work for you and your family.
Below you will find a list of curriculum resources we personally plan to use for C for Grade 9.
in this post for your shopping/research convenience.
I have divided our curriculum by subjects for easier searching:
Language Arts/ English:
The Complete Writer: Writing With Skill Level 2 – We used level 1 last year, and C loved this book!! You will need an instructor’s textbook and a student workbook. (for Amazon.ca: Instructor’s Textbook, Student Workbook)
Spelling Workout 2001/2002 Level G Student Edition– A family favorite for years, easy no prep needed. (Amazon.com/Amazon.ca)
Analytical Grammar Set -I have not used this program before but I am super excited to use it. I choose to invest in the Analytical Grammar: Reinforcement & Review Worksheets & Answer Keys so I can use it for 3 years.
I let the kids pick their own books, I did not care what they read as long as they were reading. C chose:
The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook (Junior Edition) -For the record, I loved this book! Very practical yet written to appeal to teenagers. (Grab your copy here from Amazon.ca)
Junie B., First Grader: Boss of Lunch (Junie B. Jones, No. 19) -I think he was hungry! (Get your copy from Amazon.ca)
This one is “just for fun, mom not for school”! 😉 Sure thing kiddo! Loamhedge (A Tale of Redwall) My son loves these books, it is a series, I have not read them. He does want to make scones, keep posted for the outcome of this idea 🙂 (Get your copy from Amazon.ca)
Secret Garden-this was his assigned reading for the month.
Anno’s Mysterious Multiplying Jar -cute picture book on math, the back pages are amazing.
Girls Think of Everything: Stories of Ingenious Inventions by Women – amazing book and we made the chocolate chip cookies!
The Wind in the Willows – Our read aloud
The Last Safe House– Our read aloud
Redwall books another series that gets pulled off the shelves over and over.
I chose National Velvet as a book I wanted him to test out. He decided to finish it on his own.
(I will update as the year goes on-check back each month!)
Instead of book reports we will be using Notebooking pages! (grab your free resources!)
Geometry– This is from Easy Peasy Highschool!
Algebra 1 This is from Easy Peasy High School
Chemistry/Physics-This is from Easy Peasy
Notebooking pages just for science here: Basic Science & Experiment Pages!
Story of the World vol. 4 This program continues to be well-loved in our house. This has been our favorite for years. We have purchased the textbook, I will be purchasing one activity book this year for the activities, recipes, and coloring pages. We also have on hand The Kingfisher History Encyclopedia which I am beyond thrilled to try.
History Geography This is the course we started last year from Easy Peasy and will be doing the second half this year.
