    Our Seventh Grade Homeschool Curriculum

    Seventh Grade Homeschool Curriculum

    I have been homeschooling my children since the fall of 2014. My oldest two have so far finished preschool. My second will finish kindergarten later this fall. My oldest has completed first grade, second grade, and third grade and will finish fourth grade before the end of the year. I already have my fifth grade materials ready to go for my oldest. I also have my sixth grade and seventh grade materials purchased and organized. If you are interested in any of the materials, easily find copies on Amazon via my affiliate links.

    Reading

    I introduced the Language of Literature series from McDougal Littell during sixth grade. I will continue using the Language of Literature series for seventh grade reading: Language of Literature (Grade 7).

    Language of Literature (Grade 7)Writing

    After using The Writing Prompts Workbook, Grades 5-6 in fifth and sixth grade, I plan to use the series in seventh grade. To inspire my children to write, I included The Writing Prompts Workbook, Grades 7-8 for grade 7 writing. The Writing Prompts series is available for first grade through twelfth grade.

    I plan to continue using McGraw-Hill Education Vocabulary Grades 6-8 for seventh grade vocabulary lessons.

    My children and I continued doing word study using Structured Word Inquiry. Each week she and I chose a base word or two to study. I am also using the InSight Words (Volume 1, Volume 2, Supplement, and Inflections) from Linguist-Educator Exchange. We also studied other words that arose in day-to-day life.

    Math

    For seventh grade math, I plan to use the Kumon Pre-Algebra, Kumon Algebra, Kumon Intro to Geometry, Kumon Geometry, and Kumon Word Problem workbooks. Each workbook introduces mathematical concepts gradually and builds on previous knowledge.
