I've spent so much time researching curriculum for this upcoming school year. There have been countless late nights reading reviews and dissecting every possible sample page on-line. I spent hours at different booths at my state's homeschooling conference, asking way too many questions. Decisions, decisions, and more decisions. Thankfully, the decisions have been made and we are starting back to school next week!
Izzie will officially be in kindergarten this year! She did outstanding this past year with K5 and is looking forward to adding a few more subjects to her daily schedule. During her K5 year, we focused primarily on math, phonics, and reading a lot of books. Izzie is convinced that she's in first grade, since we did K5 last year and she did participate in all the kindergarten extracurricular activities (AWANA and American Heritage Girls), but I'm convinced that there's no need to rush these early years. So, we will be referring to this year as K-1. I can make up grades, right?
It was such an overwhelming feeling sending in her Letter of Intent to our local school system. It's official...we are a homeschooling family! Let the adventure begin!
K-1 Curriculum Choices
Reading and Spelling
We'll be using these books as supplements and will work at her pace.
Bible and History
We will be incorporating some pieces, but not using their daily schedule. Additionally, we'll be using their suggested science activities.
Phew! Now, on to Preschool!
Reading and Unit Studies
I found all of the following jewels at our homeschooling conference this summer!
It's going to be a busy year!
