It’s 6th grade take 2!

My second child is about to begin 6th grade. He’s a vastly different learner than his older sister, so our plan looks quite different for his year.

He is my late bloomer – brilliant in math and abstract thinking, but a struggling learner in reading and spelling.

However, during his 5th grade year, he decided to bloom. And wow, nothing quite prepared me for the outcome.

After spending several years worrying about his education and my ability to teach him, it’s been humbling to watch his rapid progress this year.

He has become an avid reader, a deep thinker, and a motivated learner. While we’re still working to catch up in spelling, the amount of progress we’ve made in one year alone has been encouraging.

I’ve had fun planning curriculum for my mathy auditory learner.

Here is our plan divided by trimester, since we are now schooling year-round.

Several of the fall and spring items are done as part of our group school time (morning basket time). I’ll be doing a lot of reading aloud as my kids narrate, take notes, and create outlines.

It’s going to be a fun year!

  1. Hi Lexi,
    I enjoy looking at your curriculum choices because I noticed that we have chosen similar curriculum through the years. I am looking for a bit of direction for my daughter as we head into 6th grade. We have used Right Start Math since Kindergarten and have loved it. I noticed that in your curriculum plan that you used Right Start Level F, but then in 7th grade moved on to another math curriculum. Were you not happy with Level G? I’ve debated whether we should continue with Right Start for Levels G and H or if I should look into another option. Thanks so much for your help! I appreciate it so much!
