Right now we are using A MESSAGE OF ANCIENT DAYS and Scott Foresman Reading, Level 7.

I've been using this book called "Enrichment Math" which is for gifted kids.  It is fun so that's been math lately.  :)

What are you using?  Anything you particularly have liked?

Adam & His Kin

The Bible in 90 Days

God is in the Small Stuff for Kids

The Bible in Picture for Little Eyes


I'm using a computer program for phonics, online games for math (telling time) and an online interactive program for art. So right now we aren't using many books at all other than for our Bible/history studies.  I will be "rowing" Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening soon, using Five in a Row Vol. 1.  I have also found Reading Rescue 1-2-3 to be a great resource.

We are using Apologia Astronomy and love it.  I am learning so much about the solar system.

We just started with Singapore math as well.  I've never been so excited about math before.

We are using Early American History by Beautiful Feet Intermediate. It uses real books. In just a few more pages we will be finished with the read aloud "Pilgrim Boy, William Bradford" and moving on to "Landing of the Pilgrims". I have been finding some of the books we need for the program here.

We just started reading Pilgrim's Progress. My son is begging to read more.

We also use Spell to Read and Write, RightStart Math, and Small Talks on Big Questions. Oh, and we are studying birds. I swapped The Little Guides Birds and picked up The Bird Feeder Book at a used book sale.
