  1. I'm considering using Winter Promise's Hideaway in History this coming winter/spring. I've read mixed reviews about WP, but many of them are quite old. Any recent experiences with them? I'm looking for a curriculum for my newly 6yo that incorporates (1) living books and (2) activities. She is an only child, so can handle a bit extra prep, etc. Thanks so much!
  2. Hi there! There are already threads that list free curriculum, but they focus more on the older kids, so I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread with free curriculum for preschoolers and kindergartners. These are some of the resources I used as a teacher and now as a mom. Please add on and list any free curriculum or resources you are using or that you know of. I taught 4 year old Kindergarten before homeschooling, and I worked closely with the 5K teacher to mesh our programs. For my son, we just have fun doing phonics, handwriting together, math games, and take lots of field tri
  3. I'm trying to get a plan together. My 3 year old will be doing our own version of 'letter of the week'. I'm curious how everyone else organzies this. What are your weekly and daily plans?
  4. I am considering what I want to do for next year as far as Bible for my kindergartener. Do you think this is a sufficient enough curriculum: 1. Read for devotional and memorize My ABC Bible Verses: Hiding God's Word in Little Hearts 2. Start on reading and memorizing the children's catechism through Big Truths for Little Kids: Teaching Your Children to Live for God I would love to do something that would be a survey of the Bible or incorporate copywork. Any suggestions?
  5. Hi, I am new to homeschooling. I started teaching my 5 year old with TYCR100EZ lessons. I am getting ready to start Singapore Math. I am considering the Scrambled States of America and Spelling Power. Can you tell me your FAVORITE curriculum choices and why? I would love to have some recommendations. I am also thinking about using the classical conversations cd as a supplement (not actually attend cc). Advice?:) BTW, I would LOVE to find a great curriculum to teach my child Spanish. I know very little spanish myself, but my DH is Puerto Rican.
  6. What do you consider overkill? I love McRuffy Math & Phonics but I'm not sure I'm loving SL P4/5. I don't know that just McRuffy is enough or all I want to do. Any ideas?
  7. I have many friends using MUS, but at first glance RS seems to have great examples and lessons for a 5 year old. Could you please share your thoughts on why you would choose RS over MUS. Thanks, Karen
  8. Will have a kindergartner this year and I am looking for some fun items to order for him from Rainbow Resource. I'd love for some of them to be JUST FOR FUN while I do school with the older boys. (And I'd also love for some of them to be educational as well!) Any ideas? I'd love to hear them! :) Thanks so much!
  9. I have been trying to narrow down the possibilities of math curriculum for my littles. I like the idea of both Miquon and Singapore Math, but I am unsure of the particulars. I know some people do both together. Does this work effectively without too much hassle? Also, what age would you begin Miquon? Is there a certain skill level to achieve before embarking? Should Singapore be used with Miquon, or could you do Miquon alone effectively? My homeschooling friends all use Saxon and A Beka, so any help would be appreciated!
  10. I look at all the neat things out there for younger ages & think how fun it all looks. Sometimes I think I'd like certain things for me more than for my child.:001_smile: I'm a curriculum junkie and yet love the spontaneous learning that happens too. I have to keep reminding myself of the difference between want & need. I'm interested in what people used or did. The whys & what worked comments would be quite interesting too. Anyone?
  11. My 4.5 y.o has already done half of the Saxon Phonics program and half of the Level A of Critical Thinking's Mathematical Reasoning. We will actually "DO" homeschool officially starting in the fall. She went to preschool this year which was fun for her, but a total waste of time for me. Anyhow,I'm planning out her school year (I have to be a planner down to the T due to having 2 special needs children that are older). I need recommendations for the amount of time that would be appropriate for an almost 5 year old. She loves doing worksheets and some days I HAVE to cut her off. She'll sit
  12. I have searched high and low and I can not find a KG curriculum that I like. I think I am going to use CLE for 1st grade, but their KG looks too easy for dd. I dont like the way MFW looks, Sonlight looks OK, but she already knows her letter sounds (we used 100 easy lessons) and the first grade looks too hard. What is wrong with me? Am I too picky? I dont have time to piece together a whole curriculum. Any suggestions?
  13. I've been looking for a list of books with coordinating activities. I finally found a company today that has these in book form! The Mailbox has them. Here's what I found at their website: www.themailbox.com Storytime from A to Z Listen Make and Learn at Storytime Seasonal Storytime Everything Nursery Rhymes These all have lists of books in them with activities. Some you copy off to do, some you gather supplies....I"m so excited! Does anyone know of any other books or lists like this out there? I love doing activities after reading books! Normally I read the book a
  14. I am starting Kindergarten with my oldest this year. :hurray: I also have a 3 year old and a 6 month old. We are going to be doing The Phonics Road to Spelling and Reading Level 1, Right Start A, Story of the World Volume 1, and Academy of Science for Kids Seeds. We plan on doing Phonics and Math daily, Science and History twice a week and Art on the fifth day. I am a very type A, make a schedule, kind of person. I've given us 2 hours a day to work on school. I have absolutely no delusions that we are going to be able to sit down and finish it all with out the 3 year old and the 6 month
  15. I've seen 2nd and 4th grade but what about Kindergarten? We are simple for K here... MFW K with ETC Primers (I'll have my 3yo tag along as well) ARFH K MUS Primer And tagging along with big bro/sis..And the ARFH and ETC are because he wanted to do them. :)
  16. Ok - I work full-time and am due with my 3rd in 3 weeks. My sitter is great and does school with her 3 and my 2. My oldest is 4.5 and her oldest is 5, so they're in a "class" together. However, when it got to be 5 girls all together and she was so busy juggling all the different schedules, we agreed that she would do phonics with her oldest and I would do it with mine in the evenings. (They do the Preschool-ABC series from KeepersOfTheFaith.com otherwise, but it's been going really slow - one workbook last year and basically, only 1 workbook this year.) The idea of phonics at nigh
  17. I am having a difficult time with math and my kindergarten dd. We are doing RS level A and she is having a really hard time with it. The games - like come before where you say a number and they say the number that comes before it- and the one where you flash numbers from 1-10'with your finger and they have to identify it are super hard for her. She complains and today she was crying and saying she is not very good at math! I was an engineer before kids so I really want her to love math and have confidence. I am totally fine with taking a break but she loves to do school every day. I do schoo
  18. I have been a lurker/reader of these boards for over 7 years and we are now embarking on the homeschool journey! From all your great advice, our goals, and WTM, here is what my husband and I have come up with for our PreK & K children. Since dd seems in step with ds, I'm folding her into the school year. Goals: Teach Asher and Stephanie how to read Teach them how to write basic letters and numbers Familiarize them with basic math concepts Timeline: 6 Semesters/ 39 weeks/ 195 days 4 days a week in home study/ 1 day a week “Off Campus/Field Trips
  19. Monkey and I have been doing more and more, until I'm starting to feel like we're doing kindergarten-level "preschool," and having to make more accommodations for the fact that he is in no way ready to write. But he is ready to read, and he is ready to start learning more about numbers and math. It's just like SWB said in TWTM: The reading's not so hard: we're using Happy Phonics, which is entirely games-based and perfect for the young learner. Only, I'm starting to have to work a bit more to figure out how to get around the writing now that I'm looking more seriously at doing more math.
  20. A continuation from another thread (ETC Book 4 question). For those who use Explode the Code--Do you supplement with any other phonics programs? If so, which ones work well? I have just begun using ETC with my 5yo son and look forward to hearing any feedback on the program and its use in conjunction with other programs. Thanks, Sara
  21. I would love to hear your thoughts on the Explode the Code series. I am considering it for my 5yo son. I want him to grow into being a strong reader and would be supplementing his traditional kindergarten (1/2 days) work with this set. I am a total newbie here, and have been reading reading reading, but wanted to get some opinions before I purchased the books. Thanks so much. Sara
  22. This is a general plan for our upcoming year. Naturally not everything will be done every day (e.g., science is only twice a week). Thanks for looking and I welcome and thoughts or feedback! :bigear: PS - I made the font small b/c it's a long list (given that there are four children), but it's also on my blog if you need a bigger font...) 4th Grader Math Mammoth (Multiplication 1, Division 1 & 4th complete) Writing Tales (when finished we'll do Igniting Your Writing) Journal writing - although they write in their journals whenever they want, once a week I do a structured writ
  23. Okay, it's not that I don't like them. I'm actually pretty artistic. I'm just more mental than hands-on. I'm also very slow and methodical, so a supposedly 30 minute or hour long craft can take up an entire school morning. I used the AG (activity guide) for SOTW 1 this year but since we were cramming it all into one semester (DD6 asked me to homeschool her mid-year), we didn't have time to do the activities, and per the above, I wasn't too motivated. We also were always missing at least one of the supplies needed. DD6 is very artistic but is usually content with drawing, painting, etc.
  24. Hi there, My firstborn (first grader) taught herself to read when she was 4. My second child (4) taught herself to read when she was newly 3 and then to write when she was 3.5. My third and last child (2.5) might be reading but he seems like more of a numbers guy :) All of them have been late potty trainers (DD4 was reading before she learned to use the toilet!). I'm a writer, my husband skipped first grade because of his reading ability, and I suspect that all of my children (especially the girls) have an intuiting preference, as do my husband (ENFP) and I (INFJ). I'm an MBTI pr
