We are going computer this year, so the girls can build up computer skills. So, we went with Alpha Omega's SOS (Switched on Schoolhouse) for our core subjects and a few of our electives. We are also using Amanda Bennetts unit studies for some more electives. Of course, like many homeschool families we are also supplementing with classes from Coop, church, sports, 4H and Girl Scouts, as well as music lessons.

My kiddo is in 2nd grade and is high functioning autistic. So ours varies a lot depending on what works.

Curriculum wise we use:
Handwriting without Tears
Maps (a workbook)
My Body Book (helps you make a body of yourself including your organs)

Not using curriculum we do:
Experiments (science)
Verbal Dialog (science)
DVDs (history and sign language)
Journaling (English)
Hands-on Activites (American History and different countries flags)
Story Writing (English)
Listing to classical music (music)
Nature Walks (Science)
Printable lists (Spelling)

This is what we will be using throughout the year but we'll see how it goes. Sometimes we need to change things around due to how he learns or what he's interested in.
