Caleb didn't start his Spanish studies soon enough so if he goes back to NMMI he will graduate a year late. He was o.k. with graduating late but not a whole year so he has decided to finish his school career at home. He does want to go back to NMMI for Jr. college next year.
So here are the subjects he will study this year and some of the resources he will use.
Advanced Math- Saxon
English- Easy Grammar daily lessons program, daily essay, lots of reading, my husband and I will work with him to improve his writing skills
Spanish- Tell Me More and I will have him do lessons and tests from Spanish I and II textbooks that we have.
World History- DK History of the World, Timetables of History, R.C(Robinson Curriculum) books, one research paper on a topic of his choice each semester
Economics- Fiat Money Inflation in France, Economics in One Lesson, What Has the Government Done To Our Money?
P.E.- daily workouts, teach siblings different sports
Leadership/C.A.P(Civil Air Patrol)- study daily to earn next promotion, mentor his younger brother
Art- we will rotate through drawing, sculpting, and watercolor
My son is very good at math so I know he will do well. He doesn't like to read so we are going to emphasize improving his reading and writing skills. We are starting his studies now so he will have enough time to master the first two years of Spanish by next summer.
I am a little worried about whether he will get all of this work done. He made the decision to stay home and he knows what he needs to do so I just need to let go and let him take on the responsibilities of his decision.
