Well, I hate to be a copycat, but Jennifer posted her curriculum choices for next year, and since I have mine mostly worked out, I thought I'd do the same. So, thanks, Jennifer, for the impetus!
For those that might not read regularly here, I have 4 children and work full time on second shift. My kids are David, age 12-1/2 in 7th grade; Emily, age 10 in 5th grade; James, age 7-1/2 in 2nd or 3rd grade; and Suzy, age 5 in kindergarten. (Only homeschoolers could be unsure of their children's grade level! lol)
All kids - Baker Bible Study Guide for All Ages - Finish Volume 3
and alternate with:
Character Building for Families – Volume 2
David - Math U See – continue with Pre-Algebra, then move to Algebra 1
Emily - Math U See - Gamma and memorize all math facts
James - Math U See – Finish Beta, start Gamma
Suzy – learn the numbers and practice counting
All will do child-chosen silent reading and mom-chosen instructional reading (some aloud, some silent).
All will listen to Read-alouds, Mom-chosen, of general interest
David – still deciding (perhaps Literary Lessons from Lord of the Rings?)
James – Finish Alphabet Island Phonics 2B, Explode the Code 3 & 4, & Phonics Pathways (to supplement when needed
Suzy – Alphabet Island Phonics 1 and Bob Books when ready
David – Sonlight Grammar Ace

Suzy - Writing the Letters and her name
All kids will write back and forth to me in their Journals, and write to others via the postal service
Composition for David and Emily will be Institute for Excellence in Writing's course - Student Writing Intensive B.
David – Apologia General Science (or possible Physical Science, if co-op offers this class)
Emily, James, Suzy – Scholastic Science Mini-Journals (9 mini units on various science topics)
Might do From Sea to Shining Sea & Sounding Forth the Trumpet since I already own those, thus continuing our American history study.
Or we may go on to Mystery of History Volume 2....
All kids will play AYSO soccer in the fall & spring.
All kids will have PE at co-op twice a month.
May also include Spanish, which I can teach, but I might get Rosetta Stone instead.
Will include in some form: Music Appreciation, Art, Geography, Typing
