9th Grade Curriculum Plan 2012-2013

I think I’ve finally figured out my 9th grader’s homeschool curriculum for 2012-2013. Once I start the actual schedule planning, some of this may change. Hopefully I’ll have everything finalized by August. If you’re a homeschooler, you’ll understand what I mean about having a curriculum plan and then tossing it all out of the window, only to start over.

I’ll post the younger kids once I get that all figured out.

Summer Work

This is just a list for my own needs. I thought I’d post it in case someone else would like to get ideas. I’m always on the hunt for ideas.

This is a list of books we will consume this summer. Not all of each book will be read. I have a list of chapters necessary. They are to prepare us for our upcoming school year. Summer school? Kind of. But the kids enjoy it.

I will be editing this list from time to time. We may leave some things totally off, or add something else we find interesting. If you’re a homeschooler, you know how that goes. Check back if interested.
