Our 3rd Grade Homeschool Curriculum Picks

This summer, we have camped, traveled and explored Texas, but all good things must come to an end. 😉 This fall, I’m setting off to a new adventure, I will be homeschooling my 3rd grader. I’m excited and nervous about our upcoming year, and I think it’s going to be a memory maker!

I’ve been researching and attending conventions preparing for this day for 5 years. We will have “structured” class Monday through Thursday with Friday open for “Life Lessons” and exploration. When life moves in a certain direction, so Real Posh Mom seems to follow. You can expect more homeschool posts from me, as I plan to share more of our journey with you. I hope you like that idea!

Reading and Literature
Reading and literature is definitely an area where we have so much freedom as homeschoolers, and I plan on fully embracing it this year. We’ll be using Honey for a Child’s Heart for our literature journey, and I will be sure to keep you posted on our reading and activities!

Math
We have used MathUSee for lower grade levels. It is a great curriculum, especially for the child that is visual and loved tactile learning. But, this year we are trying Singapore Math. It’s comprehensive and gives a solid foundation in math.

Science
I cannot say enough great things about Apologia. We love their science curriculum and will be working our way through Exploring Creation with Astronomy and Exploring Creation with Botany.

Social Studies
Preparing for our overseas move, we will be studying Around the World in 180 Days.

PE, Art, Music & Other Electives
Local gym studios and private lessons will round out our electives.

What are you most excited about this school year?
