Homeschool Plans for 2012

As we start our school year in mid-January in South Africa, I have been spending a good amount of time planning for the year ahead. Here is what we'll be using:

Tapestry of Grace, Year 1
Writing Aids (part of Tapestry of Grace, but new to us)
Math U See
Spelling Power
Easy Grammar and Daily Grams (New to us)
Exploring Creation through Botany (Apologia)(Marissa)
Apologia General Science (Brandon)
Slow and Steady, Get Me Ready (Mya)
ABC's & 123's along with African Animals - Rhymes & Recipes (Mya)

It should be an interesting, crazy busy year ahead, but I'm looking forward to it!

We may add Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) later this year, as a friend found the DVD's for me second hand for only $1! I just have to get it from the US to SA.


  1. It has been a blessing to us as these homeschool curriculum providers give discounts to overseas missionaries:
    Tapestry of Grace
    Math U See
    Easy Grammar

    Thanks for allowing God to bless us through you!

  2. My kids really enjoyed Apologia Science Curriculum which we started in 8th grade - Biology, followed by Chemistry, Physics, and advanced Biology. Have fun! :)
