Curriculum for 2014-2015

This coming year, I think may be my easiest yet.  I will have Emily in 5th grade, and Michelle will be in 7th.  Michael is a senior this year and fully independent at this point.  He will be dual enrolling in three classes each semester at USF, taking bible classes with Ligonier Connect, and a persuasive writing/speaking dvd class from IEW.  The biggest change will be that Don will be handling the teaching and grading of Michelle's work this year.  I will still be responsible for her curriculum, lesson plans, and record keeping, so I guess we'll be co-teaching.  He seems to handle the difficulties I've been having with her all these years much better than I do, so hopefully this plan will work out well.  She does most of her work independently now anyway, so teaching her involves accountability, direction, and answering questions.  I am looking forward to spending more of my time focused on Emily's education, as she really needs my undivided attention now.

I have the following curriculum lined up for next year:
