springmama Posted July 3, 2009 Share Posted July 3, 2009 My 6 year old dd is starting 1st grade. We are doing everything according to WTM. I have my daily lesson plans made up including narration, read alouds, memory work, copywork, etc. I am basically including everything that is recommended in WTM, exactly the way it is recommended. With that said, we will be starting off slowly. For the first few weeks, starting on July 7, We'll be doing only basic math and some reading practice every day. I will add in Bible lessons, memory work, copywork, grammar, writing, etc. We'll add a little at a time until our first true week of school when we add science. At that point, we will have worked up to exactly what is recommended in WTM for first graders. I feel like I need to do it this way because I'm not educated myself and I feel like in order for my child to be completely educated, I can't leave anything out. However, it appears to me that not very many people do follow WTM strictly, so I'm looking for others who do. Am I the only one planning to follow it as written? Do you all think I'm crazy and that I won't be able to keep up? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
