trlt Posted January 10, 2012 Share Posted January 10, 2012 My dd will be beginning her first grade curriculum in May and I am trying to decide on a history or social studies curriculum for her. Last year we used MBtP but I don't want to continue it because it just wasn't a good fit for her. I know a lot of families use SoTW and/or other curriculum that start with Ancients and progresses but I don't know if it will be good for my dd at this point in time. My concern is that dd is sensitive and if there is anything harsh she is just not ready for that and would have a total meltdown. My other concern is that I just don't know if she would comprehend the topics enough at this point. I want her to get something out of what I teach and I'm not sure she would right now. Does anyone else not use history for first grade? I was thinking of just doing geography and social studies but I cannot find a basic social studies type of curriculum (secular). Should I just go with history starting with Ancients and just really gloss over things I know she can't handle? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
