It’s almost time for a new homeschool year! I’m participating in the Back to Homeschool Blog Hop with over 50 bloggers from the Schoolhouse Review Crew. Today I’m going to share our kindergarten curriculum for the 2014-2015 school year!
This is technically year 2 of kindergarten. All of my fall babies will get two years of kindergarten. We will be finishing My Father’s World Kindergarten this fall. This is a wonderful program and I wish we had been able to get through it all last year, but we have had a crazy year! You can read about why we chose My Father’s World and also see all of the units we have completed so far!
I’m going to do a few different things for the second half of the year. I do not want to start Bug in first grade too early, so I really want to reinforce his phonics and math skills before we start the more rigorous My Father’s World First Grade program.
I’m going to pull all of our Bible, literature and science readings from this literature based kindergarten program from Water on the Floor.
My Father’s World Kindergarten has some handwriting practice, but once we finish that I want to work on his handwriting even more. We will be using A Reason for Handwriting: Manuscript A and for fun we will use Draw Write Now Book 1. I wanted to use that last year, but we did not get to it and he really was not ready for it then anyway.
We are going to continue playing math games and I plan to start him with Singapore’s Essential Math Kindergarten B.
We always get lots of outdoor time and will be doing various handicrafts throughout the year.
This is the first year we are participating in a co-op! We are hoping to have a lot of fun and meet new friends. Bug will be taking a Lego Club class, a story and craft class, and an art class.
So, that’s about everything for our second year of kindergarten. I’m hoping this year goes a little more smoothly than the last!
