Sixth Grade Literature

Has anyone used this site? This looks really interesting how they've combined different books from different time periods.

It's spring again. This is traditionally when I've planned the following year and tradition holds firm here.

It's been a while since I've included weekly wrap ups or anything but since my eldest is going into 6th grade I would like to again for posterity.

I don't have a perfect plan, yet, but I think I have the basics set.

My kids in the fall will be 11, 8, 5, 2 (turning 3 in October).

I have the younger kids doing CLE, Eldest is doing Khan Academy, second doing Khan and CLE.

Language Arts
In order of youngest to eldest is probably easiest. #4 will do the Rod and Staff preschool books. This will be my fourth kid doing these! #3 will finish firming up phonics, handwriting, and grammar using a combo of Cursive First, Memoria Press, and some CLE. #2 will use CLE and Memoria Press. #1 is still somewhat up in the air. She has been using a combo of Memoria Press and CLE. I'm not sure if we will continue to use both together or use just Memoria Press, I need to really look at the samples and what is covered.

Foreign Language
Kids are doing Spanish. Big two are using Duolingo. Continue on.

Still determining. Lots of nature study with field guides, more work on the Scientific Process.

Memoria Press, Child's History of the World, historical fiction to match time periods at carious reading levels.

I still really like Lutheranism 101 for kids, in a continual loop. Catechism. CPH's Story Bible. Hymn memorization.

I have the content areas roughly grouped together so the kids can work in a group at their own levels. Skill areas separately since those are impossible to really group at the varied levels.

And I think that's that.

It has been a long while since I posted here regularly. I am going to attempt to rectify this-- we are still happily homeschooling and as we approach middle school I want to have a record to look back on.
