For sure, we'll be doing Apologia's General Science and continuing with Math U See (finish Epsilon & on to Zeta). I am considering Diana Waring's History Alive beginning with the ancients. We also will use Sequential Spelling & maybe Easy Grammar (for review or practice if we use TLP).

We also use Kay Arthur's Bible Studies for kids for Bible. When he finishes all in that series, I plan to look for some worldview type studies.

I am still considering Above & Beyond (Hitty), a few titles from Total Language Plus and Apologia's Jump In! for writing...

IEW themed writing on the Middle ages
My Father's World Rome to the Reformation (loving this) this covers Bible, history, literature,vocabulary, and science.

This year my 7th grader did:

MUS Pre-Algebra
Sequential Spelling
TRISMS History Makers
Apologia Exploring Creation with Physical Science
Shurley English 7
Precept Upon Precept John

I feel like I'm forgetting something but I'm too lazy to get out my course of study and TRISMS coveres more than just history (literature, composition using IEW, etc) so maybe not.

This year my 7th grader did:

Learning Adventures (first 4 units; covers Bible, writing, literature, history, science, and fine arts)
Teaching Textbooks 7 and began Pre-Algebra

Bible/Catechism memory work through church

My preliminary plan for my to-be 7th grader is:

- finish MUS Algebra 1, possibly move in Alg 2 or do Stewardship
- FUFI unit study
- Apples 2 spelling
- Mavis Beacon typing
- piano

That looks short. :unsure: I'm usually in the less is more crowd though, so it may end up being just that. :lol:
