- History - picking up at Greece
- Science- new approach this year with premade lab sheets, previously Nate had been doing it but I needed something a little more um, non science person friendly so I could tackle it
- Phonics. Handwriting and Math are done with workbooks from the same company
- grammar - finishing up from last year
- Evie reading
