Math: Saxon 1
We used Saxon K last year and it was great. C learned a ton and I want to keep this ball rolling. Albert and I are both pretty strong in math, so this is a great option for us right now.
Bible: The Child's Story Bible
This was given to us when B was born and is listed in several different curriculum that I am interested in. It is excellent!
The Big Book of Questions and Answers
I am planning to use this like a catechism, doing two lessons/week.
Navigator's Topical Memory system
This is our plan for scripture memory. C and I have already memorized the first 12 verses. We will both start on B pack and B will start on A pack. Is that confusing?
Christian Liberty Nature Reader Book K
The Burgess Bird Book For Children
Fun with Nature
More Fun with Nature
We are reading one small section of these. We'll work through one book at a time and take walks (hopefully daily) to search for the things we read about and just enjoy God's creation.
I have one book on each of these and I am going to order one CD of each. We will listen as we do chores and prep lunch. I will switch to the next one after 12 weeks.
I have a coffee table book of Monet, along with a book about each. I am planning to buy a print or two of each of these greats and display them around our house. I also have a couple of books about teaching children art. I'm not totally sure about the details of this, but yeah, at least I have some good tools!
I am reading the Little House on the Prairie collection during lunch.
My Father's Dragon 3 book series
Aesop's Fables for Children
A Child's Garden of Verses
The Biggest Bear
Mary on Horseback
Thy Friend, Obadiah
Winnie the Pooh
Beatrix Potter The Complete Tales
James Herriot's Treasury for Children
I am planning to find some more books for reading aloud. We love new books and I think we will get through these pretty quickly.
Spell to Write and Read
We will work on phonograms this year. I am planning to really work on reading next year, after I become more familiar with the program.
A Light in the Attic
Winnie the Pooh
The Llama Who Had No Pajama
B will be doing Son.light P3/4, work on counting in rote and recognizing letters by sound.
We will also work on Habits and Handicrafts as recommended by Charlotte Mason approach. The big thing that I want to be intentional about is spending time observing and enjoying being outdoors. This is bigger to me than crafts. I think we are going to do all of our table work first thing in the morning, then read outside going straight into a nature walk, bike riding and play. We'll see when I get my house clean, but my children should be learning a lot and stretching their little minds.
First day is tomorrow. Pray for us!
