Hi my name is Monica.  I have been homeschooling for over 2 years.  My princess is 5 years old.  I have been using just regular workbooks and created my own lessons for preschool and Kinder.  Now she will start 1st grade and thinking of using a curriculum that will be already set out lesson plans etc.  I have been a cafemom member for a long time but have not used it at all to the capicity it has. So, I am new to this, a bit overwhelming LOL.

What suggestions can anyone give me for a 1st grade curriculum.  Victoria likes interactive, hands on learning.  She loves music.  

Suggestions are greatly appreciated.  


Thanks you.

God bless.

Welcome!!!

We use a "boxed" curriculum that does a lot of seatwork and not as much hands on just yet, so I am of no help with your question.  I am sure that you will get a lot of helpful answers.

Welcome :)
For first grade we used:
All about spelling
Handwriting without tears
Saxon math (switching to horizons this year)
Story of the world ancients
Outdoor secrets for science (don't recommend. We are using r.e.a.l science oddyssey this year)
Drawing with children - I didn't like it. Using art adventures at home now.

That's all I can remember right now. I highly recommend AAS and hwot.

Ring Around The Phonics (phonics, reading and language arts) is very hands on, and kids love it.  It lasts a long time too (from K through 6 grade).
