so, i am looking at curriculums and thinking of next year..my youngest will be in 1st grade and i wanna be prepared.. I am not sure yet what curriculum i want or should use with him.. what subjects do you cover in 1st grade?? any curriculum suggestions?? I want to make sure i cover enough material with him but i don't want to overwhelm him either or make it too simple.. make sense?? lol he also really struggles with writing so i want to help him in that department.. do you cover every subject every day?? or alternate science and social studies/history??? we have taken it easy this year mostly focusing on phonics and some math and reading... right now we are using the begining books for Explode the Code (the ready set and go books) and a workbook for some math... and just reading books, leapfrog movies.. and also http://www.readingkingdom.com/ he also helps with cooking and and just life learning too..
I am a single momma and can't afford an expensivie curriculum, but can buy a little at a time to get ready for next year.. I am so open to suggestions and would love to know how you do/did 1st grade.. what curric did you use?? how did you schedule your day?? anything else helpful would be great too...
