As a blogger, I may be compensated in some way (either pay, product, or experience) for sharing the post below All opinions are my own. ~Heidi
Times . . . they are a’changin’ . . . and this precious little boy that I still call my baby is growing up. In April, he turned 5. Now he’s got his first loose tooth. And, he’s been begging me every day for weeks to start school. Bless his heart!
I kept putting off looking over his stuff and coming up with a workable schedule – after all, I’ve got a senior and a 7th grader, their stuff had to come first, right? The other day, though, I finally had time to put some thoughts to paper regarding Ian’s school year. And now we’re ready to dive in and get started. His enthusiasm is contagious – I just hope it lasts all year!
With the exception of Bible, all of the other items we’re using this year are things that I’ve received over the past few years while working with the Homeschool Crew. What a blessing!
Math ~ Mathematical Reasoning Level A from The Critical Thinking Co. and enVision Math from Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley (this second book is a 1st grade curriculum – so I’m not sure how we’ll schedule the two – either simultaneously, or one first, then the other – we’ll see . . . )
Reading ~ All About Reading Level Pre-1 and Readers from Academic Success for All Learners (again, I’m not sure how we’ll actually schedule the two things, but since we have them both, I want to make use of them)
Writing ~ Write Shop Primary A
Other ~ we’ll work on some life-skills type things as well. And, if this year is anything like our past school years, we’ll add in more great products that the Crew receives to review! We’ve got lots of educational games and computer games that I’m sure he’ll be making use of. And, I may pull out All About Spelling a little later in the year.
Now, it seems that we’re all ready to start school. How about you?
