those are what we focused on (we also looked at science books on animals and plants etc. from the library...and used the books "Usborne Children's Encyclopedia" (for some science on the solar system...animals...etc. etc.  and "living Long Ago" (Usborne) for info on different areas of the world and how people lived (clothing, transportation, food etc.) Both Usborne books have amazing pictures and we just looked a a couple of pages together each day to get us thinking...

Don't forget 'social studies' which would be community helpers and your address, etc.

The basics you mention are the most important thing.  Public schools often fail our children, because they teach too much too soon, and move on before the basics are grasped.. 

Also the following video explains an important element in teaching reading.

If you check the regulations for your state they might have a list of required courses you need to include as well. :)
