My Crisis Of Homeschool aka Our Kindergarten Curriculum

A crisis? In kindergarten? What does this bode for my future?

I was so looking forward to all of my wonderful plans until I discovered that my son isn’t going to learn as much or enjoy school as much as he could, if I were to follow through with them. Shocking, I know. As it stands we’re continuing with the same resources for skill subjects, but using a book basket for content subjects. I’ll tell you what we’re doing now and update at the end of the year.

Bible: Egermeier’s Bible Story Book with memory work. We’ve done John 1:1-5, Psalm 23 and are now working on Matthew 5.

Language Arts: Reading Lessons Through Literature twice a week and English Lessons Through Literature three times a week.

Math and Logic: Ray’s Primary Arithmetic with Cuisenaire Rods and RightStart games, and Developing The Early Learner.

Foreign Language: Hey Andrew! for Greek and Memrise for Spanish as well as Pio Peep! for memory work. We also read, listen to and watch lots of Spanish because I’m trying to make it a lifestyle.

Art: Drawing With Children.

History, Geography, and Science: This is where the book basket comes in. Right now we’re enjoying the Let’s Read and Find Out Series, The Big Book of History and picks from Sonlight’s PK curriculum and Core A but I will give a full list at the end of the year.
