Sixth Grade Curriculum

My Mackenzie has a bit of a math phobia. Typical I know, but she's really, really good at it when she doesn't psych herself out. We're talking perfect math scores on her standardized tests for the most part. So this year I'm going to trying to break through this math wall she's built by adding in some living math type options. Fingers crossed! I can't take the crying anymore. Gah!!!

Your curriculum looks great!! We're using the Learn N' Folders for Zoology also. :)
I've considered Sonlight over the years and I have never heard anything bad about it. I sometimes wonder if I should try it - I know that it would take a lot of the planning out of my school year, which would be helpful!!

I love Sonlight for many of the reasons you mention. Core 4 was a fabulous year; it contains soooo many amazing books. We loved it and I hope you do too. Thanks for sharing on the NOT Back-to-School blog hop.

Great list of resources! We use HOD, which uses a lot of living books like Sonlight.

"'Rumor' has it that Core 5 is the biggest workload of all the cores and I've decided to save that for middle school and let her last year in elementary school be lighter."

Would you say this is true? How is she doing with the workload? I can't decide between F (5) or G (6) for my upcoming 7th grader.

Stephanie, do you notebook while doing Sonlight? I have been looking at my manual and noticed it's a lot of discussion, light on the writing, so I'm thinking of supplementing with activities and notebooking. It may take us 2 yrs to get through cores B+C (but we're using 4/5 readers with a 3rd grader, so I'm not too worried)!

Do you use the sonlight LA? WE will be using Sonlight next year and I'm trying to decide weather I will use it or not!

Do you use Sonlight's LA? If so, how do you like it?
