2016-2017 Curriculum Choices (10th, 9th and 2nd grades)

One week until school starts!  AAAHHH!  

Seriously, we are ready for school to be back in session.  I've picked out all our curriculum for the year and have a good grasp of what we will be doing.  Things always have a way of changing, but for now--this is the plan. 

Since Tera and Daniel are only one year apart in school, we have decided to combine FOUR of their core classes this year.  Easier for me and hopefully easier for them!   

At the beginning of the school year, I print out a different Bible reading program for the older kids to work through, while I read selected passages to Michael.  Personally, we do not count it as a school credit.   

This year's plan:  90 Day Overview of the Bible
