LEGO ENGINEERING ACADEMY. After all, Matthew has been saying since he was five years old that he will be a lego engineer and now that he is getting more serious about his future it seems only natural to enroll in that now.
For Math we are staying with Saxon. Matthew will move on to the 1/2 book which is pre-Algebra. We started using Saxon math in 5th grade after using ABeka for 3 years and really liked it. We stay away from the drills and extra worksheets. The lessons and just the lesson problems are enough. Something must be right because Matthew scored in the 90 percentile for math this year on the CAT test.
And, the most important subject of all. Bible. This brings it all together. In the past we have used structured Bible curriculum, but this year Matthew will focus on just having time in the Word and building his own style of devotions. He has started staying in the sanctuary on Sundays instead of going to kids' church and he started attending the weekly youth group. We purchased a new study Bible for him that will be his close confidante as he grows into adulthood.
