3rd Grade Homeschool Curriculum // First Semester // 2015-2016

When I have done curriculum posts in the past, I have done it as one post for all grades. I am going to divide these into separate posts for each grade and then a post on how I scheduled it out for the year and our weeks. 

Keep in mind : This is for my daughter, Brie, who is in 3rd grade. Not all that she is using is for the typical 3rd grade level. She's advanced in math but on a 1st/2nd grade reading level. This is totally okay for me. 

The beauty of homeschooling is being able to move at HER pace. My husband has the same reading disability. I think she might be dyslexic, the way that she mixes her letters up, but I haven't gotten her tested or anything.

See Our 5th Grade Curriculum Here. 

Bible // Missionary Study // Character Study
- My Brother's Keeper Junior : Learning to Love Your Siblings God's Way
- Hymn & Worship Music Study. Resources : 123 [several on the third one]

- CLE [Christian Light Education] : This is similar to Saxon, just a bit less pages. It works out to be one full grade ahead of our local public schools. So she's doing the 200s books for  3rd Grade. 
- Big Brainz Math for math fact mastery
- Xtra Math for online extra practice 

- Nancy Larson : Science 1. This is the one that my kids chose even though they aren't in 1st grade. You can see our unboxing video HERE.
- Nature Study Using : 
              Nature Activity Cards
              Nature Portfolio
              Nature Readers [Books 1-5]
              Nature Anatomy by Julia Rothman

English // Literature // Grammar // Reading // Penmanship // Vocabulary
- Robert Frost Study in the Winter
- Easy Peasy Learn to Read We are using the Printed Book because it's better for us.

- Easy Peasy History Year 4 [for additional info/videos, etc]

Health // Physical Education
- Gymnastics : Weekly


- Let's Find Out About Manners [The cover has cartoon kids from the 70s. It's charming]

Handicrafts // Music // Art // Electives
- Hand Embroidery Kit & Her own designs
- Watercoloring [doing this with Bible Art & Nature Study]

She doesn't do ALL of these every day. I'll show you how we schedule and link it here when it's up.

Please feel free to share your curriculum choices below, link to your curriculum post if you have blogged it or share any experiences you've had with anything I mentioned!

Aloha, Jane
