Our Bible Based Homeschool Plans 2014-2015

Planning your homeschool year?


I am in full swing of planning our new year. As always, I tweak this every year depending on where we are at…each stage of life is different! This is the first year I will “officially” be homeschooling all four of my children, as I now have an “official” kindergartner! I also have an 8th grader, which means we have an eye on the next few years…

Here is what we have so far:


Bible: Our study will consist of Acts and Romans. We will tie this into our history studies as well. We will go through the book of Acts and read commentaries, listen to sermons, etc. as we go.

I am also planning on having the older kids write out a book of the Bible at a time into a notebook. We will probably start with Acts since that is what we are studying.

History: Mystery of History Volume 2: The Early Church and Middle Ages. I am SO SO very excited about this. I have been reading through it and it looks fantastic. It looks so perfect for our family. The activities are right up our alley. I can not wait to start! 🙂


Geography: We will study the geography of the lands that we are reading about in Acts and Mystery of History, but I also want to once a week review countries, continents, oceans, and states and capitals with my olders, and start teaching them to the kindergartner. I don’t have anything formal for this, except books, maps, etc.

Science: Apologia. The younger children will be finishing Exploring Creation with Physics and Chemistry. We started last year and took a slow pace. The kindergartner will listen in, and he will also explore his world outdoors- science will be informal for him.


My 8th grader will do Apologia’s Physical Science for middle school.


Foreign Language: my 8th grader will be using Middlebury Interactive Foreign Language Program online. I will be sharing a review in September, so be sure to watch for it 🙂

Language Arts: IEW for the 8th grader- another review coming on this in the fall 🙂 My younger boys will be doing Language Lessons from Queen Homeschool.


The kindergartner will be doing Explode the Code and learning to read.


Penmanship and SpellingPrint to Cursive Proverbs Copywork from Simply Charlotte Mason for my 4th and 6th grader. They will also continue with Spelling Wisdom from Simply Charlotte Mason.



Math: Math U See for all. (Alpha, Delta, Zeta, and Algebra)


Logic: The Fallacy Detective for 8th grader and 6th grader


Literature: Family Read Alouds and Individual Reading: various, I am working on book lists.

Robotics team- 4th and 6th grader

Photography class – 8th grader

Public Speaking with Institute For Cultural Communicators (all)

Fine Arts- Lots of music, dance, drama, and computer art classes at a local fine arts program for all grades.


Right now my book Simply Homeschool 2nd edition is available in paperback as well as Kindle!
