We have been using Learning Language Arts through Literature (gold book-American Literature) with our 10th grade daughter. It is a wonderful, rich literature curriculum that exposes your child to American authors like Stephen Crane. If you want a solid literature curriculum, then this is it. However, you will need another grammar/English program to meet graduation requirements in some states.
I love your reasons for hocmsehooling. I often wish we didn’t have the chaotic rush of getting everyone to school in the morning. I also would love to stay in my pajamas longer! Do you homeschool in pajamas? I think I would every day!We celebrate Halloween. Before I started reading blogs, I never really knew anyone who didn’t and never thought much about why people wouldn’t. I certainly understand the reasons why people don’t but for us Halloween is about dressing up and being silly. My kids would say it’s all about the candy.I would love to know more about your decision not to celebrate Halloween.
