Ashley’s 12th grade year . . .

Florida 2011 025

Hard to believe that Ashley will be starting her senior year in high school.  Truthfully, I think we could have graduated her early; but, since she’s still not 100% sure what she wants to do after graduation, and  because there was still so much left that she wanted to learn, we’re doing another full year of school!  And who knows?!  We might just keep learning even after she graduates! 

Anyway, here are Ashley’s choices (with a little input from me) for the 2011-12 school year (which we’ll start in July):

Bible ~ Proverbs – The Fountain of Life from Positive Action for Christ

Math ~ Business Math from Abeka

Language Arts ~ Literary Lessons from The Lord of the Rings

Science ~ The Human Body (Advanced Biology) by Apologia

History ~ The Mystery of History, volume 1 (round 2) from Bright Ideas Press

Geography ~ not sure yet (may just do our own thing to go along with MoH, and use Wonder Maps from Bright Ideas Press)

Greek ~ take 2 (since it didn’t really work last year) – this year we’re going to use Basic Greek in 30 Minutes a Day

Critical Thinking ~ James Madison Critical Thinking Course (new!) from The Critical Thinking Co.

Art, Music, etc. ~ Ashley has taught herself to play guitar and plays often!  She also recently started voice lessons; and will most likely follow along when we study the composers this year (more on that on Gracie’s list).  She will also use the Building Thinking Skills books from Critical Thinking, as time permits.  She has some “must read” books on her shelf for this year as well.

Looks like it’s going to be a busy, but productive, year!

I’ll share Gracie’s list (7th grade) and Ian’s (K) in the coming days.

Wow, I can't imagine having a 12th grader. My daughter is entering 9th grade this year.

We just finished MOH 1. I am def. going to look into the Proverbs Bible study.

Thanks for sharing, and for linking up with me.
