Each new “school year” goes by and since we homeschool year round I normally don’t share what we are using. There is no official starting or stopping date; we just flow from one to the next. A first time for everything, right?
This is Bekah’s studies for the coming year – Ninth Grade:
Year 10 of Ambleside Online – We have always used a literature approach in our history studies. This year I decided to finally jump in and use Ambleside. Bekah is enjoying her studies and is thriving. Year 10 covers the 1800s with history, biographies, essays, literature, geography, worldview and more.
- Written narrations for history/literature and other reading selections.
- IEW’s Student Writing Intensive C
- Fix It Grammar from IEW
- Commonplace Journal – This take the place of copywork/handwriting. Lovely concept and you can read more about it at Charlotte Mason Help.
Math – Saxon Algebra 1
Science – Apologia’s Physical Science
Memory Work and Recitation – Scripture, poetry, etc ranging in length and difficulty. (I’ll update when I get her final selections.)
Choir – local homeschool choir
Life Skills – No set studies as of yet.
Bekah also studies poetry, art, and music. She enjoys knitting, drawing and reading in her free time. She also has a blog that she will be working on this year as well.
Since Bekah’s school load is a bit heavier than in previous years, we created a checklist to help her spread the work over the week without being overwhelmed.
I’ll update as any changes are made. Transitioning to high school has been an exciting time!
