2010-1011 Fourth Grade
This year will combine history and science in one literature based program. We will also have a separate project based physical science program to reinforce the concepts and theory he learned this year. This is partly because the last science program I got from WinterPromise was too light for him.
Math, language arts, Bible, and reading will continue with the next level of the current curriculum. He will do a separate writing program because writing is not covered specifically in Christian Light. They recommend getting a separate writing program if you want more writing instruction. Prices include instructor guides.
