I've got a 1stie!
DS turned 6 in April. He did Kindy at the PS last year, and it was fine, but we were both dreading the start of school this year [schedule, homework, busy work, etc], so here we are.
: SOTW1 and lots of related RA booksMath
: Singapore Math [starting with 1A, but mostly for review and to learn the "Singapore way"; I've already got 1B waiting in the wings],Reading
: Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading plus practice phonics readers from Modern Curriculum Press and other easy readers to spice things up.Handwriting
: we're going to do Getty-Dubay Italics, but first we're doing lots of gross motor and sensory activities to retrain his muscle memory. PS didn't do any HW instruction, but had them doing a lot of writing so he practiced bad habits all year.
I'm not doing anything specific for spelling [yet; I'm thinking AAS, but I'm going to wait until we're through with OPGTR], science, art, music, or PE. I also bought Rosetta Stone Spanish, but we haven't started it yet. He's signed up for swimming lessons, and I hope to do stuff with the co-op [but I'm negotiating the toddler's nap and DS1's speech therapy].
I'm trying to keep it fun, with lots of breaks [necessary anyway cuz of the baby], and lots of hands-on learning. But we have our moments. Oy.
