I ave a newly 6 year old who we pulled out of public Kindergarten due to a painful and epic teacher-student mismatch. (You can probably excavate the thread over in Learning at School if you're curious, but things got really disgustingly bad before we pulled him, which I'm not proud of.) We've been homeschooling for a couple of weeks now and it sounds like we're much more academic and school-at-home-ish than most people here -- which is totally fine, we're following DS's cues, and that's where he's at right now but that may change as we go.
Right now, he does school for 90 minutes or so in the mornings with his dad. They focus on reading, writing and math every day. Currently, DS picks out one of the graded reading books from our library every week, and so he reads that book every day for a week -- initially working on decoding (he's already got really good phonics skills due to too many hours on starfall.com...) and then on fluency. He writes down new words from each book in his 'dictionary'. He's got some worksheets to reinforce phonics, and has to write a sentence or two in his journal each day for handwriting. Math-wise, he's got worksheets and manipulatives to use with them for basic adding and subtracting and is working on math facts with flashcard. Once he's got those down, we've got materials for place-value lessons and adding/subtracting two digit numbers, but I don't know if we'll get to those before summertime. We also have two great math project books (Family Math and 100 Math Projects for First Grade) that we do activities from.
For the rest of his curriculum, we use the core knowledge sequence as a guide. It seems to sort of match up with what our public schools are doing, and it helps me to have a guide as to what to teach content-wise, otherwise we'd end up spending all our time on the Civil War (my current obsession) and Dinosaurs (DS's current obsession). We want to handle those things in a more project-based way, but we're still in the planning stages and don't want to overload ourselves. We've also added recorder and handwork from some more Waldorf-influenced books, and DS takes Judo and swimming lessons for PE.
That sounds way more 'challenging' and academic than what other people are doing, but we're trying to true up with DS's public school curriculum as much as we can, and his kindergarten literally WAS this academic-focused. Frankly, I think that's sick and wrong, but since we don't think we'll homeschool next year and we don't know where we're going to be physically (I've got some job stuff happening that means we literally could be anywhere in the world by September of next year, including right where we are...) we want to make sure he's academically ready for where ever he ends up, so we push formal reading and math more than we would otherwise.
