I'm so excited, it is getting close that I will be able to order the books I want for the kids. I have SO many plans that I just had to share. :_)
Unit- Heridity and genetics
Text book I hear really good things about this series Science Explorer by Prentice Hall, I will be using these mostly this year.
DVD Wow, this is cool! I'm not sure I can get this too, but it would be a great additions. It's on my wish list!
Very excited about this unit. We will be extracting DNA from fruit for the labs, and the unit project will be to build a double Helix.

I plan on using this whole series for Nicko in Social Studies this year!
Animal classification lapbook
National Geographic, Animal Encyclopedia
McGuffey Readers old right? But for some reason Nicko just loves these. I'm really not sure what the appeal is for him, he just says he likes them. You can get these online for free, but I would really like to have the hard copy version.
Pinneo's Primmary Grammar again, and old one. We are using the online version because it is free of mistakes. I think possibly Nicko likes these because the style is sort of Charlottle Mason like in their approach.
A Reason for Handwriting cursive
Continue to use Math U See
Note: I will add to this list as I find things.
