Bible-Based Homeschool Plan: 5th and 1st Grade

this post contains affiliate links

Recently I shared what my older children will be doing for the upcoming school year! 


Today, I am sharing what the younger children will use!

5th and 1st grade

Keep in mind, we loosely plan. We know God is the Master Teacher and He will guide us. We add lots more real life learning in, but this is the “core.” We still will study Bible as a family, first and foremost in our day together. This is our {loose} plan. We always are open to God changing it at any time!

5th Grade

Bible study with family

Language Lessons for Elementary from Queen Homeschooling
Language Lessons - Charlotte Mason Style Language Arts

Handwriting without Tears Cursive

Apologia Exploring Creation With Zoology- Swimming Creatures













American History- lots of living books, videos, field trips, and discussions. We will use Truth Quest as a loose guide for books

We will use some of these books too:
