It’s that time of the year again! It’s time to share our large family homeschool curriculum choices for the 2020-2021 school year! It’s no surprise, but we are once again using My Father’s World homeschool curriculum as our main family curriculum. I love the family style subjects and how packed full of goodness this curriculum is. So, let’s just jump right into it!
Large Family Homeschool Curriculum – My Father’s World Rome to the Reformation
My Father’s World Rome to Reformation is designed to be taught to children in 3-8th grades, or 2nd graders with older siblings. I will have a 2nd, 4th, and 6th grader using this curriculum. I love the chronological history aspect of MFW, so this year we are studying the time period of ancient Rome through the Reformation.
Our Bible curriculum will consist of learning about the New Testament. We will also study How the Bible Came to Us, as well as Trial and Triumph. Since we are now Catholic, I plan to try to find some Catholic resources, as well. Those will most likely be added to our morning time.
I will, of course, be using the teacher’s manual and following it pretty closely this year. Our history books include the Make It Work! Roman Empire book, Augustus Caesar’s World, Usborne Medieval World, and The Story of the World Volume II.
For the first half of the year we will study human anatomy. We are all really excited about this! We’ll use the First Encyclopedia of the Human Body, The Body Book, The Human Body for Every Kid, Galen and the Gateway to Medicine, and The Wonderful Way Babies are Made!
We will continue on with English Roots from the Ground Up and study Latin roots this year.
I decided to go ahead with My Father’s World suggestion and use God and the History of Art. This will be our first year with this program, but I’m excited!
Morning Time Subjects
Most of our morning time subjects such as composer study, poetry, artist study, handicraft ideas, etc will come from The Homeschool Garden! You’ve got to check it out. It’s beautiful and simple to use.
And that’s it for our “together” subjects. I’ll be back with our independent subjects soon!
