Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum!

Yah! After MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH hard work, soul searching, praying and researching, I have finally completed Reagan's Kindergarten curriculum for home school for the 2010-2011 school year. She'll be a few months away from 4 when she starts Kindergarten but that works just fine for us because we plan to take it very slow and do a two year Kindergarten course with her. We also plan to school year round. She wants to learn, we just have to focus on the discipline of learning--the hard part you know!

So, without further ado, here are our choices!

Art-Come Look With Me Animals in Art and Draw Write Now Bible-Positive Action Bible Curriculum; supplement with The Big Book of Questions and Answers-Sinclair Ferguson, Read Aloud Bible Stories OT
Math-Horizon’s K
Phonics/Reading-Starfall and Confessions of a Homeschooler Letter of the Week Program; Literature Pockets: Nursery Rhymes
Science-Real books, Backyard Scientist Exploring Earthworms With Me, Astronomy book, note booking and labs
Music-Use coloring pages (see website) while she listens to music from a classical composer and then read a story (all gathered from the local library) http://www.makingmusicfun.net/htm/mmf_great_composer_worksheets_index.htm Activities and listening resources at this site:
Etiquette-The Etiquette Factory
Physical Education-enroll Reagan in beginning dance class
History/Geography-A Mystery of History Volume 1, History Through the Ages Timeline CD (Creation-Present), Record of Time empty binder and placement guide, Biblical and Historical Atlas
Latin-Song School Music Latin CD

If you have questions about why I selected a program, please let me know, as I have researched these options extensively and can give additional information if you require any.

  1. The confessions of a homeschooler letter of the week curriculum looks good. I might use it with Little for Kindergarten depending on how much she learns at preschool (2 days a week) this year.
