So, today was my first official day of 7th grade! I am pretty proud of myself, because I started around 8:30, and finished at 1:45 P.M. on my first day!!! Yes, 1:45! Super happy about that. I'm happy with most of my curriculum this year, and I am hoping that I will be able to have good days like this all year long! Here's the rundown on my curriculum:
Math: Saxon Algebra 1. I've been doing Saxon for a long time now, so that's nothing new and exciting. :o)
Science: Bob Jones University Press 7th Grade Life Science. I love, love, love this science program! I have the online video lessons with Mrs. Vick, and I love science!
Grammar and Writing: Saxon Grammar and Writing 7. I have been doing Saxon Grammar for a couple years, so, once again, nothing new!
Literature: Life Pac American Literature. I haven't done this yet, because it's not assigned to me on Tuesdays. It's on the schedule for tomorrow.
Reading Comprehension: Reading Detective B1. This book is good for reinforcing reading comprehension, but it's kind of boring.
Vocabulary: Wordly Wise 3000 Book 7. I find this book to be very educational, and I really like the layout of it.
Handwriting: Universal Publishing Handwriting: A Self-Improvement Workbook: Book H. My cursive isn't very nice, so I do this a couple times a week to improve it. I usually write in print anyway, but my mom wants me to have good cursive.
History: All American History: Volume II. This is a pretty good program. Volume II is going to be waaaaay more interesting than Volume I, because I will be learning about the time period during/after the Industrial Revolution!
Geography: Discovering the World of Geography: Grades 5&6. I am in the 5&6 book because I didn't do geography one year, but I'm going to catch up this year.
Second Language: Rosetta Stone Homeschool: Latin. I'm not sure how I like this. I had an immersion program for Spanish in 1st Grade, and I didn't really like it. I'm hoping this program will be better!
Congratulations if you got all the way through that!!! I just put it out there for fellow homeschoolers who might be interested, and anyone else who's interested in what a 7th grade homeschooler does. I always like to see what other homeschooler's curriculum looks like, so if you have anything you love to do, please comment and share! I hope you had a nice weekend, and I wish everyone a fantastic school year!
