For both of my children, we use the New City Catechism to introduce foundational truths of our faith. We are also using the Awana program (whether or not we can do it in a church setting this year) for memory work, including the Trek middle school program for my daughter. She will also continue to choose Bible studies from the Discover 4 Yourself series by Kay Arthur to hone her inductive Bible study skills. In addition to these things, we will be adding the Memoria Press Christian Studies program (level 1 for my son and level 4 for my daughter) to round out their Bible learning.
Along with English language arts, both will be learning Latin. My daughter is finishing First Form Latin, and will begin Second Form sometime in the winter. My son is beginning Latina Christiana. And I am learning right along with them! My daughter is also dipping her toe into Greek with a weekly lesson from the Greek Alphabet.

And that is it, plus our extracurricular activities if those actually happen in the fall. I will give a more in-depth look at each of these areas, as well as how we are structuring our days, in the coming weeks. If you homeschool, what curriculum choices are you making this year?
