Who is starting a new "year" (school year) in January?
We're going head on Kindergarten with DS4 this January. I've switched out some curricula from the fall that I wasn't fond of, read up on the latin centered curriculum (my new inspiration, with the caveat that I'm beefing up maths and, eventually, science, veering from what they suggest), and we're almost ready to go!
Getting rid of Phonics Pathways and instead using Reading Rescue 1-2-3 with Bob Books and maybe a Catholic reader from Seton Press. <---- reading/phonics
Coupling Miquon with Verbal Math Lessons, Level 1. <----- maths
National Geographic Kids <----- sciences/nature study
Keeping our music, as is (Making Music, Praying Twice).
Nixing formal religion, and instead doing lots of fun saint stories and Catholic coloring books.
Keeping our memory work guide.
Moving foward with Handwriting Without Tears for handwriting.
Still trying to figure out Latin.
Continuing on with What Your Kindergartner Needs to Know as our quasi-base guide.
Anyone else switching things up almost entirely, or moving into a "new year"?
I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol). Aimee
