Hello I have been on this site all night last night reading all the wonderful post and suggestions for homeschooling, you all are awesome. This is officially my first year homeschooling with a curriculum so I just want to know your opinion on what we are doing with our boys ages 5.5 and 4. We school 4 days a week with Friday's off. It takes about 1hr and 20 min with breaks. I do like a light schedule for now. Is this light for their ages?
5.5yr old Boy-
Bible 15min-Bible stories with coloring sheets, Memory verse (1 a week)
Phonics 20min-Hooked on Phonics K(40 pages before he is done),Bob books, starfall website, easy readers.
Math 20 min-K workbook (Need a suggestion he is getting frustrated with this work book) manipulatives(tanagrams, counting bears, dominoes etc)
Handwriting 15min-Free worksheets from Donna Young site(Letters,numbers,short sentence)
Science-Library Books, Let's read and find out books, Bill Nye, Magic Schoolbus books and Dvd's(They love science experiments need a book for easy experiments at home)
History-(Don't know where to Begin)
Extra-Piano Lessons 1 day a week, Park everyday, Sonlight Book list, Charlotte Mason booklist, Tanglewood Booklist)
Math-counting, number recognition, pre-k workbook
Phonics-Hooked on Phonics K slowly
Handwriting-free pre-writing skills(lines, circle, slopes, etc)
