1st Grade: Thinking Out Loud

I’ve begun planning out next year and like the look of things so far. I had originally intended to begin our first 4 year cycle in 1st grade, but I think my daughter would benefit from it if we waited until she was in kindergarten and could participate. I strongly considered Berean Builders Science, but have decided to line it up with our second history cycle so all of my students can benefit from it.

Curriculum:

Reading Lessons Through Literature 2Xwk
Homemade Copywork 3Xwk

Ray’s Intellectual Arithmetic 1Xwk*
School Arithmetics Book One 4Xwk

Homemade Greek & Spanish 5Xwk

Tapestry Of Grace Primer 3Xwk
Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding 1Xwk
Artistic Pursuits 1Xwk

Memory Work:
CC Foundations Guide
Fighter Verses
Hymns For a Kids Heart
English and Spanish poetry

Book Basket:

Supports for TOG & BFSU

YWAM Heroes for Young Readers
The Ology
Leading Little Ones To God
The Church History ABCs
Wisdom & The Millers
Ahora Puedo Leer Mi Biblia

Tales From Shakespeare
Books from Suppose The Wolf Were an Octopus
Various poetry books

Canta de Colores
Poemas

A Child’s Book of Character Building
Philosophy For Young Thinkers or Question Mark

Readers:
Treadwell
McGuffey
Christian Liberty Press Nature Reader

Games:
Beethoven Who?
Geopuzzles

*These are oral exercises which will take less time than the worksheets in School Arithmetics. I believe it will be perfect for Mondays when memory work is introduced because of the time we will need to cover the new memory work.
I promise I’m not torturing my child, I just like options.
