Curriculum for 4th Grade



We have been busy here finishing up school before spring break. We have about a month left then we will take a 6 week or so break and start our new year in July. We do school year round with 2 or 3 three longer breaks throughout the year.  It works great for us, Kiddo can’t handle the heat of summer so it is a great time to get school in and then in spring and fall when the weather is cooler we take a break and enjoy the outdoors

I have been researching and researching curriculum for next year, with geography being the trouble subject this year. I just can’t find what I want so I will piece it together.  Kiddo wants to learn Japanese this year, really Japanese!  I have tried to talk to him out of it without much luck  so Japanese it is.  I am going to use LiveMocha and see how it goes. I have started a list of literature I want him to read this year, he reads so much on his own I have never really made him read certain books but this year I have started a list with his input.

Here is my curriculum list for next year I have not ordered yet so it is subject to change Smile
