I just visited Marsha’s blog at Our Homeschool and Other Such Happenings, and got the idea to write this post. I am hoping that I can get some feedback from all of my homeschooling friends out there!
Right now, our curriculum is as follows:
Math– Saxon Math 1
Phonics/handwriting/reading– Veritas Phonics Musuem
History/geography/bible/literature/grammar- Tapestry of Grace (The grammar section is kind of weak. There is the option of adding TOG’s Writing Aids, but I am not sure we should get into grammar deeply until we have mastered reading???)
Read Aloud with mom: The Boxcar Children Series
Audiobooks (for car rides)-Various titles from the library
Various-Computer softwar, Homemade lapbooks, File folder Games
P.E.-Other than the normal activity of boys… Tae Kwon Do lessons twice per week.
I don’t have anything for spelling (are we ready for that yet??? I am thinking we need to get through phonics first,) latin (what is a good age to start latin???) art, music, or science. The Veritas Phonics museum does include a small art lesson once per week (not very comprehensive, though.)
Right now, our week is as follows:
Mon-Fri: math, phonics, handwriting, reading, read aloud time with mom, file folder games, computer activities
Tues: bible (though, we do have bible discussions on a regular basis per the boys’ many questions…lol)
Wed: literature, art
Fri: review of TOG subjects, field trips
I would LOVE some feedback from you veterns out there!
