We don’t provide a math program but we’ve got some suggestions, so you can pick a resource that suits your child’s style and ability.

Since this is a literature rich course we need you to buy or borrow some living books.   You can view our book list when you download the course outline.

Foreign language lessons are also at your own discretion but we’ll give you some tips.

 

Year Six Details

Our aim was to find a good balance between Charlotte Mason’s ideas and the registration requirements of a modern day Australian curriculum.

Efficient planning means that we’ve streamlined lessons to give your child a rich learning experience without making you feel guilty or overloaded. This means you’ll still have time to go on delight directed learning adventures.

36 Week Cycle

Our Year Two programs is set out in a 4 term/36 week cycle that can be spread over  4 days (12 – 16 hours per week). To give you some breathing space, we’ve allocated the last week of each term to: special projects, catch-up lessons and assessments.

But you as the homeschooling parent you can pace your child’s learning according to their abilities and needs.

Documentation

Keeping track of your progress is also easy with our weekly schedules available in an online or printable format.

Registration is made simple with our Yearly Planning Template and detailed Scope and Sequence.

We also provide certificates and portfolio prompts that will make documentation and continued registration a cinch.

At the end of each term there is a downloadable report of work achieved over the term. Parents add comments and assessments of their child’s progress in each area of learning.

Online Learning Platform

One of the most exciting features of My Homeschool is the online learning platform we are using. You can access your course from your PC, Mac, Tablet or even your phone.

Moodle is an Australian designed software that is used by many school, universities, colleges and educational institutions around the world. My Homeschool has been built on this platform. You can download an app for your smart phone or iPhone and that means your whole course is at your fingertips. This is great for getting organsied and  learning on the go.

I love that I have a place to start with organising a personalised curriculum. I love the access to the Primary Language Lessons, copy work, and  geography resources.

To have a grade by grade list of resources suggested and available for the various subjects is great!!

Although I haven’t as yet made proper use of the community hub, I plan to and it is reassuring to have that available!
