My soon to be ninth grader is a big reader. Instead of using a science textbook, he is going to read several different non-fiction titles to learn about Earth Science. Here is a list of all the books he’ll be reading for this class.
Next year, my 9th grade son will be taking a Geography and World Cultures class as an elective. Here is a more detailed description of what he’ll be learning for that class.
History education is always selective. Who’s stories do we choose to tell and why? My son will be a Freshman in Highschool next year, and he is going to study World History spanning from the first humans to the industrial revolution. Obviously, far more happened in that time that a student can learn in a single year. Here is what I’m planning to teach him.
Next Fall, my youngest son will be starting 7th grade. This past year’s homeschooling adventure was a huge success, so we’ve decided to continue homeschooling again next year. Here is the curriculum he will be using for 7th grade.
The school year is almost over, and many people are preparing to order curriculum for next year. I wanted to take a moment to share my thoughts on the curriculum I used this year for my 6th grader. In citations where I’m planning to continue using the same curriculum next year, I’ll let you know.

What does it mean to be human? This is a question we humans have been asking for millennia, it is also the question I’ll be asking my son as he enters high school. I’m currently in the process of pulling together my soon to be 9th grade son’s freshman curriculum. At it’s core every single class he’ll be taking asks this same question. I’m excited to see what he learns and how he answers this timeless question for himself.
Next year, I’ll be home schooling high school. What! I made things up as I went for most of my son’s eighth grade year, but for ninth grade, I feel the need to plan ahead. Here is what my son will be reading in the 9th Grade World Literature course that I’m creating for him.

Comparing Math Curriculums
Math was always my favorite subject in school as a child, but it’s both of my kids least favorite subject. Both of my kids were below grade level and disinterested in math when I started homeschooling a year ago. In the past year, I’ve tried a LOT of different math curriculums.

This year, I created my own US History homeschool curriculum for my eighth grade son. Here is a list of all the books he read, or will be reading this year.
