Homeschool Sixth Grade


"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea." ~~ Antoine de Saint Exupery

School Plans/Reviews that include sixth grade: 2016-17

Religion

  • Faith and Life 6 along with paper activity book.
  • The Mass Study
  • Baltimore Catechism #2
  • CCD

Math


Reading / Language Arts

  • Independent and read aloud using Seton's Faith and Freedom Readers (I love these books, and so do my children. Good for reading comprehension and small writing exercises.)
  • Independent Reading -- child's choice, my choice, and historical books to add to the history curriculum.
  • Book Study: King Arthur (written narrations by chapter).
  • Vocab (look up and write out in journal).
  • Beginning writing (attempted Writing with Skill but had to simplify further for my son and taking steps to outline and narrate multiple paragraphs along with other writing exercises).

Science

Apologia's elementary Exploring Creation through Anatomy and Physiology.

History

U.S. History and Modern History -- wrapping up western explorers with main focus on Civil War, Industrial Revolution, WWII, and bits from 1950s forward. Using independent reads alongside some lapbook type work from Homeschool in the Woods.

Other Stuff

Naturally, plenty of other learning goes on - dance class, karate, homeschool group activities, faith extras, cooking, drawing and painting, etc.
