Curriculum Planning 2014-2015

I am willing to bet that curriculum line up is on the mind of many homeschoolers at the moment. I am no exception. I have been meaning to sit down and draw up a tentative plan for the up coming school year. I finally get to do it, and decided to share it here.

The boys will be officially in grade 4 and 6. Wow, the years are mounting up!

For the 2014-2015 year I am hoping to still be on the crew, through which I am getting a lot of curriculum to try, so I am trying to not buy too much stuff.

It is neat seeing what works for different families! We spent 2 years with the Crew and it was a good thing, we tried many new items and it really helped me refine what worked for us and what didn't. Enjoy the new year and thanks for linking up!
