In progress, but getting close to completion, I hope!
In a nutshell--
The Private Eye: Looking/Thinking by Analogy for Jane--not just science, but cross-curricular.
Living Learning Books Life Science for J.J. (we have the "old" edition on hand, but the new one looks spiffy)
Newton at the Center (unfinished from last year) and Einstein Adds a New Dimension for Jazz
Living science books as read-alouds for all
update: I like the elementary guides better due to the fact that they are easier to adapt for home use. But I do like the middle/high school guide for bringing in some overarching themes to each book.
Closing in on The American Story and also Journeys for Freedom, et. al., by Leacock/Buckley
update: didn't like the Leacock/Buckley books for anything other than strewing, but love The Earliest Americans by Helen Roney Sattler (why do these great books go OOP so often?). Will probably use a combination of TEA plus TAS, but might see how Jane tolerates the History of US books, as well.
Picture books for J.J.
Historical fiction as readers for the older two and read-alouds for all
Vocabulary from Classical Roots, First Language Lessons 4
Explode the Code, Click-n-Read, and Handwriting without Tears for J.J.
MCT Literature and Poetry as part of Tuesday Teatime
Teaching Textbooks 4 for Jane; wishing for an open-and-go Waldorf math program, though!
Miquon for J.J.
Artistic Pursuits Book 1 (grades 4-6: American Art), maybe Book 2 if we get to it
Focus on American composers with CDs and my own research; Classics for Kids
