 Phonics/language arts.

Yes, we need to teach it first.  We need to get in our sight words/ spelling/ or vocabulary before we have any frustration of any kind or they just fall to pieces.  My middle boy actually asked for us to start with that because he said it made him feel stupid if he got "everything" wrong.  If he gets a single math problem wrong and then gets a lower "score" on his sight words game, it hits him much harder.

They have a list of subjects each day, and they get to choose the order in which they will do them. As long as we get it all done it doesn't really matter in what order or at what time.
