Oh, my goodness I can’t believe I just typed that title! Eeek! This is it. Our first official year of homeschooling! Although, we’ve been doing “school” for a while now, the fact that we are diving into full time studies is a bit overwhelming. Is this the case for any of you other mama’s starting Kindergarten?
With all the curriculum choices out there, I decided to go with one that was all inclusive. However, choices were slim since my son is advance in reading. A variety of programs didn’t give me the option to get the higher level readers. So, this year we decided to try Sonlight Core A. We actually purchased it last year and did some of it last fall. There are parts I like and parts I don’t, so we’ll see what happens.
Bible: Sonlight & Awanas
History: Sonlight Core A Intro to the World: Cultures
Reading/Writing: Sonlight Language Arts 1 and All About Reading Level 1
Handwriting: Handwriting Without Tears
Math: Saxon 1
Science: Sonlight Science A: Biology, Botany, and Physics
Extra: We’ll be using How to Teach Art for some intro to art lessons. Plus, he will be participating in soccer.
Other: Our family will be participating in a Co-op this year. The boy is very excited about it, mainly because he’ll get to take karate. Of course we will also be taking some time to venture out for some fun family field trips.
So that’s it in a nutshell. I’ll definitely be taking it one day at time.
