So my goals for the year are to get him reading, because as a Montessori kid in kindergarten, he never showed any interest. I am also planning math basics: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, skip counting, grouping, etc. Science will involve some of the Great Lessons from Montessori, Earth Science, weather, biology, animal research, and some physics.
History goes back to the Great Lessons, also- we will talk about the industrial revolution, agriculture, etc.
Art, Music, and PE will be done outside the home with classes at the Park District or through private athletics (he plays hockey and swims).
Does this sound like a good plan for the year? Right now for reading, I am utilizing programs like Reading Eggs and ABC Mouse, which he is learning a lot from- he loves the computer and really enjoys this mode of learning.
