Today I’m sharing our 8th grade curriculum picks for the 2018-2019 school year. This will be our first year using book curriculum from several different companies.
If you would like to see what my 8th grader will be using you can check out my 8th GRADE CURRICULUM FOR 2018-2019 video here:
Here are the basic subjects to cover in the 8th grade
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
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.
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.
8TH GRADE CURRICULUM 2018-2019
History – Mystery of History Volume 2
Science – The Rainbow Science
Konos Unit Studies – We will continue to use the online program Appear-in with my nieces and nephews that live in Michigan and Ohio every Friday. During the week they will do activities that cover Grammar, Literature, Writing, Language Arts, and more.
Typing – Free online lessons at www.typing.com
Coding – Free online lessons at www.code.org
Business 101: Kidpreneurs – Young Entrepreneurs with Big Ideas – I’m creating a class to teach my nieces and nephews to be kidpreneurs and start either their own business or create one together.
Foreign Language: We will continue to study Spanish using the free online program Mango like last year and include the little boys as well. I also purchased some inexpensive flashcards here.
As I said before, this will be our first year not using Easy Peasy All-in-one-Homeschool online. Almost everything we’re using is brand new and I’m excited to see how it works for us. I’ll keep you all posted!
