TreasuresFromHeaven Posted January 31, 2011 Share Posted January 31, 2011 I was reading a thread that talked about how many read alouds you have going on at one time. Majority said less than 4. Now I am second guessing myself. My DS is in 1st grade and we started MFW-K last year but quickly starting stripping away because his reading was advanced and we did cursive writing rather than manuscript. So I started my first year of homeschool modifying our curriculum. This year, I am doing mostly SCM and this is our current curriculum. (5 day/week) Bible Devotional Catechism Scripture Memory Copywork Math-U-See Alpha SCM Genesis Through Deuteronomy (Each 1 day/week) Character Sketches Book of Virtues Hero Tales Scotch Twins Farmyard People Herriot's Treasury Parables from Nature Aesop for Children A Child's Garden of Verse Men of Iron These Happy Golden Years Some of these are short, some are longer, some I read and some are audio. Do you think this is too much for 1st grade? We don't spend more than 15 minutes on any given subject or book. If this is too much, how do you pare down when making your own curriculum?
