So here we go! These are the basic subjects we will be covering for the 8th grade. I’ve included our morning time activities as well. These are things we will all do together after breakfast and chores. I might add a few more things to this time and will do a separate post on our morning time activities.

Our Morning Time Subjects

BibleSmashed Tomatoes, Bottle Rockets and other Outdoor Devotionals You Can Do With Your Kids

Art – We will be using Art for Kids Hub on Youtube with art journals to create in everyday. We will also be doing World’s Greatest Artist from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

Music – Maestro Classics Cd’s (Stories in Music) and World’s Greatest Composers from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

PE – We love playing Just Dance Now or just turning on the Amazon Echo to play our favorite songs to dance to. I have several park and Zoo dates planned out for the year.I’m in the process of creating a fun P.E circuit for us to do a few times a week at home. I’ll post those in the shop when they are ready!

Tons of read alouds and audiobooks from the Read Aloud Revival book list.
