It is only June but me and my favorite 5 year old have already been doing the Kindergarten thing for a few weeks! And we are loving it. I decided to go with homeschooling year round for now. Since the hubs works year round I felt like it made more sense to go that route and take longer breaks throughout the year.
I decided to start out slowly. The first few weeks we just did phonics and handwriting. This week we added in math and geography. Next week we will add in our science. And of course all of this is while reading tons of books and taking every opportunity we have to learn in our everyday life!
I struggled over which curriculums to go with but finally decided a few weeks ago.
Here is what we are using this year!
Hooked on Phonics (I bought an older version off E-bay that included K-2nd grade)
Horizons Math K
Exploring Creation with Astronomy
Operation World (we are using this along with a globe and blank maps for geography)
Copybook by Memoria Press (handwriting)
Child's Book of Character Building
these printables for record keeping this year. I know this year will be filled with trial and error as me and my little guinea pig go on this adventure together. But, I couldn't feel more blessed to have the opportunity to teach my son and watch him learn and grow!
