This year will be different – my daughter will be attending a private school. I will still be homeschooling two kids – my boys who are in grade 3 and K. I’m excited for what we’ll be able to do and sad that I won’t be homeschooling all three of them.
I was able to purchase some science and history curriculum and I have Sheldon’s New Primary Language Lessons that I’m going to be trying out. For math, we’re going to continue with Saxon Math 3 and some Khan Academy for my 3rd grader. For K, we’ll work mainly on learning to read and some simple math. One of our local libraries has Hooked on Phonics available to check out so we’ll use that along with the Dick and Jane books I got from my Gramma. My kindergartener will listen to our 3rd grade science and history lessons and I’m sure we’ll be reading some panda books (he loves pandas!).
Gym will be walking and biking around our neighborhood plus swimming. I’ll be teaching art again this year (at my daughter’s school) and my boys will tag along. For music, I think we’ll work on learning kid’s Bible songs. There will be lot of dessert baking as my 3rd grader wants to be a baker when he grows up. We also belong to a homeschool co-op that meets for gym and field trips.
My third grader has requested that we continue with computer programming.
We’ll also be doing a lot of reading – I don’t have a specific reading list this year. The only book we’re definitely reading is A Land Remembered Student Edition Volume 2.
When do you start homeschooling? Do you have your year planned out?
