Sixth Grade Plans

I think I finally have my sixth grade plans for Christopher together! There will be quite a bit of overlap between his curriculum and his older sister’s, but  hers will be posted separately later on.

Grade 6 Curriculum

Literature & History



    Language Arts

          He will be doing logic-stage science WTM-style this year. I haven’t worked out every detail, but we will be starting with Creepy Crawlies and the Scientific Method, then doing science kits per interest. I’ll post more info later.


          Math 6 Teaching Textbook

          • Life of Fred Mineshaft, Fractions, and Decimals & Percents (or whatever he can get through)


            Critical Thinking Book One    Critical Thinking Book Two


            • Latin for Children A– he finished Lively Latin 1 last year, but I think a year to solidify and review would be helpful, so we are starting with Level A rather than B.

              • Rosetta Stone Spanish-we dropped this towards the end of last year because he was getting too frustrated by it. We will pick it back up if he is able. 

              Art, Music, Etc.

              And I think that’s it!!

                    Sixth Grade Plans

                    I think I finally have it, but all plans are subject to change until I actually order! (and even then….;)). It feels like a lot this year, but some of this stuff will be done on a very limited basis. For example, I have her down as doing Rosetta Stone, La Clase Divertida, and Getting Started with Spanish. GSWS will be our main Spanish study, while the other two will take place only once a week (at most). We own both Rosetta Stone and La Clase Divertida, so I want to use them, but they will be used as supplements only.

                    One of my major summer tasks will be to try to come up with a workable routine for everything I want to fit in!

                    Anyway, here it is…
