Do you teach any of these in your homeschool? We do all except using a dictionary… That’ll be taught in a few years
Take a look! Notgrass History has recently came out with an elementary history curriculum for grades 1-4 . It’s CM friendly and Unit Study friendly. Notgrass History Elementary
This is an interesting read to come across in my inbox today- All About Teaching Handwriting
What is interesting is she loosely teachings based on the Spalding method…Do you know what the Spalding method is? Here’s a little information on it if you’re interested in learning more about it. Spalding Method
Spalding was the way I learned my phonics but I don’t remember loving learning phonics which is why I am teaching V the Orto Gillingham method ..Orton Gillingham
I’ve started a new website on Blogger for companies that I’ve researched on my own that is not listed on the HSRoadMap.If you choose to use Common Core or not in your homeschool it is entirely up to you. Some of these companies support Common Core others don’t.A list of Companies and Common Core Stance.There’s only a few on there as of now but the list will grow as I am always continuing to research curriculum for my daughter.
It is kind of premature to think about what we will use next year for P4(last year of preschool) but providing V continues at her current pace I think Heart of Dakota Little Hearts For His Glory will be too difficult for her.She is just learning her numbers up to 10 and HOD LHFHG goes up to 100. Winter Promise(WP) has a curriculum CM friendly and Unit Study friendly(not as much as HOD but close enough for me) and has a PreK/K curriculum that will teach and build upon her current skills/concepts.I think after that curriculum she will be more than ready for HOD LHFHG.
Phonics and Spelling will be continuing All About Reading Level 1 and All About Spelling Level 1 unless things change.
Math:Continue Life of Fred Elementary Series and Eden Series
Reading:Continuing to read books ie rhyming books, short stories etc.
Note on My Father’s World:It was clarified by a former teacher and current homeschool mom that MFW is only Unit Study friendly up to 2nd grade and thereafter it becomes textbookish. That was the vibe I was getting after looking at ECC.They also have a FB pageMFW Official FB Page.
I love to plan ahead and look at different curricula but of course our homeschool is mastery based so I will modify my choices for curricula depending where she is skill wise.I will never push her more than she can handle.Anyone else have an idea what they will be doing for curriculum next year?For a lot of homeschoolers they’re just about done with the year until Fall I believe.Us,we go year around so that doesn’t apply to us,
