We started 6th grade using the Illuminations curriculum because we enjoyed Mystery of History (MOH) so much and it is the backbone of the Illuminations curriculum. But lo and behold I missed the ease of planning in Heart of Dakota and the variety of subjects. Since Heart of Dakota also uses MOH, I decided to switch for second semester (with Samuel's blessing...). It has been a welcome routine.
So the history of Samuel's schooling has been filled with variety but we have been having a lot of fun (when not arguing about getting things done...)
Resurrection to Reformation is the guide, from Heart of Dakota, we have chosen to follow for 6th grade, and I am glad to be back on old stomping ground. Poetry, Literature, Bible Study, Devotionals, Science, Storytime, Research, Projects, Grammar, Shakespeare, Art, Math and Geography. It seems like a lot, but with the Charlotte Mason philosophy as our foundation we are able to do all this in small bits every week.
I am thankful to the HOD author/editor. When I mentioned that we were doing our own thing and then Unschooling she was so understanding. I bet she knew I'd be back!
