We kept it simple this year and did:
Paths Of Exploration – Volume 1 & 2 – We LOVED it and it served it’s purpose but we quickly “outgrew” it and chose not to continue using it in 13-14.
Lapbook for Volume 1 in POE – he decided this was redundant and boring. It would be great for a younger child or a child that was struggling with the course load in POE.
Saxon 2 -finished in Jan 2013
Saxon 3 Intermediate – we chose not to finish this but used it from Jan-March
Singapore Math 2a – we went “backwards” because Singapore seemed to be FAR AHEAD of Saxon.
