Our 8th Grade Curriculum Choices for 2015-2016

I'm still shocked that my middle son is already in 8th grade!  Where did the time go!  His school year was fairly easy to narrow down since I had quite a bit from his older brother to pass down.  This is just the bare bones - we will add electives through out the year.

Math:  Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra
Science:  Apologia General Science with Notebooking Journal 
History:  Masterbooks World History
Bible:  Lifepac from Alpha and Omega
Wordly Wise
Lightning Literature (review coming soon!)  
Music:  Piano lessons 

We will most likely add a foreign language to his schedule in the next month or so.

I expect this to be a good year.  We have used Teaching textbooks, Lifepac, wordly wise, Lightning Lit and Apologia in previous years.  We are already into week 2 of World History from Masterbooks - and loving it.  I'm suspecting General Science will be the hardest course as it is very heavy on facts but we will get through it.

  1. I have one child using Lifepacs this year for the first time. I think he's going to like them. :-)
