Is it ok to wing it for Kindergarten? - Page 2

post #21 of 23
I am hoping to do something similar! I'll let my daughter listen in on my son's History and Science lessons, but I plan to do pretty much everything else you are. Handwriting, which she already loves to do, and she knows all her letters by sight.

I would love if she learned how t read, but she isn't even "old enough" for public school so if she doesn't, she doesn't.

And I'm sure we'll do some simple math, counting, and sorting, addition and subtraction when for gardening, and measuring with cooking. She loves to help me cook!

I think what you have planned is more than adequate for kindergarten. We didn't fool with handwriting until first grade here, so you're doing more than we did.

Here was my kinder plan...

Buy a Calendar your child likes. Do calendar and weather each day. Mark the weather on the calendar. Learn about any holidays or special days all year long. Practice handwriting and learn to read and count to 100 and count backward and then by 2's, 10's. You have it all covered!
I love the calendar idea! That's perfect.
