I am so behind.

We started homeschooling our oldest in Kindergarten in the Fall, but it didn’t really work. I mean, kind of. She can write her name. She knows her letters, numbers, letter sounds. We’re working on counting.

I’ve learned a lot about us during these last few months.

I’ve learned that I need focus. I tried to pick and choose what we were learning and make our own path. But that didn’t really work for me. I was afraid I was going to miss something important. She was going to Sunday School and the teacher was going to ask a question and she wouldn’t know the answer because I didn’t teach her that.

So I evaluated what we were doing and changed some things up. Here is our homeschooling curriculum for Kindergarten. I hope it helps you come up with your own plan. If you have any questions, please let me know!

Primer – Tapestry of Grace

I am super excited about starting Tapestry of Grace! I have heard amazing things from everyone who uses it. I thought I would have to wait until first or second grade to start, but that was before I learned about Tapestry Primer. Yay! Primer lasts for 36 weeks. There are 12 mini-units which contain 3 topics. We will spend one to two weeks on each topic.

Tapestry Primer will give us an overview of what we will learn in Years 1-4 of Tapestry of Grace. And yes, I said “what we will learn”. Already I had a moment where I questioned my knowledge. Did you know there are 5 oceans?! I thought there were only four. I had never heard of the Southern Ocean.

Oh the things I have to learn.

Math

410-094-2

I had a really hard time choosing a math curriculum. It probably should not have been that difficult. Level A Mathematical Reasoning got really good reviews. Not just on Amazon either. Everyone raved about it on Timberdoodle as well. I was never great at math, and I don’t want to pass that on to my children. I want to teach them the fundamentals now that will build on each other to make math lessons as they get older easier to solve. Even just flipping through the book, my husband was impressed at the lessons.

Reading

All About Reading has been on our curriculum list for awhile now. I’ve heard great things about both All About Reading and All About Spelling. I like that it’s multi-sensory. But my favorite part is that it’s all there for me. I don’t have to pick and choose. They did all the work for me. Anything more than that right now would be super overwhelming for me. Plus it’s lifetime support. Anytime I have a question, I just pick up the phone or email them. How great is that?!

Do you homeschool? What curriculums are you using for the Fall? Did I forget anything?

I am going to bookmark this page. We are homeschooling my Prek age daughter. She turned 4 in September so they won't let her start school until next year. I am trying to get her ahead so she will love school next year.

Haha, it's funny the little facts we forget that were so innate in primary school - like the names of the oceans!
