Haven't read the whole thread yet....
DD1 would be starting K in just over a week if we were doing public school! Wow, that makes me a little sad...
I'd say we are somewhere between doing K and 1st this year. She has always been on the upper end of things developmentally. In June I started looking into what should be accomplished in K and realized she'd already done all of it except K phonics. Well, we started K Hooked on Phonics right after Father's Day & are about 3/4 of the way through it. But we don't do it every day. Probably 3-4 days a week? I expect she'll finish the K phonics by the end of September.
So, most of this year will be more 1st stuff. I think we're going to keep on with the Hooked on Phonics. It's working for her, she enjoys it, I enjoy that it's really no work to sit & plan and that it can be very flexible (ie: no set # of pages to do each day).
We're also doing math with a very basic workbook my Mom got her last year called "I can Add and Subtract". It covers single & double digit addition & subtraction, plus simple word problems for both. We have a set of manipulative blocks that she uses (which we lucked into from another homeschool mom off Freecycle!). Again, not daily. 1-3 pg a week. There are about 15 problems per page. DH also enjoys making up random work sheets for her. The most recent one was learning what charts are, the meaning of rows, columns, & coordinates, and what we use them for. He's also been doing some flashcards with her.
She already writes all her capital letters fine, but needs some work on the handwriting part & is confused with a few of her lower case letters (b & d especially). As it happens my Mom had also gotten her an "I Can Write" workbook, so we're doing a couple lines in that a couple times a week.
No science curricula to speak of yet. She will get a lot of science at our twice monthly 4H meetings. I'm going to be a co-leader. We'll be covering most the basic farm animals (poultry, goats, sheep, llamas, horses, rabbits). My co-leader actually owns all of those except horses, which another Mom in the group owns, so the kids will get to be hands on with them in the fall & again in the spring at birthing time. We're also doing a unit on forestry with lots of hiking, getting a guide to do tree ID'ing with us, basic woodworking skills, nature projects and the like. I'm sure other stuff will turn up over the course of the year as well. We do a lot of hiking and biking, so spend a fair amount of time just studying nature and talking about stuff as it comes up. We're also starting a nature basket for the girls to look through, especially in the winter months. Things like shells from the beach, nuts off trees, feathers, interesting rocks, etc. I like the CM idea of nature study & notebooks, but don't know that she's quite there yet. Oh, and hubby likes to do a lot of random science projects with her, so she gets that as well.
For history/social sciences I have Story of the World Vol 1, but am not doing anything with it yet. I'm debating when I want to start that. We also have a 2 1/2 yo DD and I've been doing Vol 1 of Five in a Row with them. I'm thinking about sticking with FIAR for awhile because it can be used for both of them, whereas SotW is really only good for DD1.
And of course, there is all the regular reading storybooks we do each day. Lots and lots of real/living books. We did recently take Lang's "Red Fairy Book" out of the library & DH discovered that they really like having the stories read to them while we're sitting in the car waiting for whatever, so I think I'm going to institute a non-picture read-a-loud book that will remain in the car & be our "car reading".
She also does tap once a week, and will either be in soccer or gymnastics as well this fall.
Gee, that sounds like a lot when it's all written out, but it's really not. There are plenty of days that we don't do any offical "school" at all. Overall I'm keeping things very low key. I don't keep a schedule or anything like that. Just work through everything at our own pace. I have a binder where I keep work that isn't in workbooks & a notebook where I started casually recording specific things we've done each day (this is mostly so we have some sort of records in case the school audits us).
I'd say we're eclectic, with a WTM/CM bent.
