We are in Maryland and have required subjects to teach (and show in our portfolio reviews.) I purchased materials for English (reading & language arts) and math.
But I did not purchase anything for science, social studies, music, art, or health.
I know my kids learn things day-to-day just living and being curious kids but I need to prove "regular and thorough instruction" according to MD state laws.
And I actually WANT to teach them lots of wonderful things.
I feel like that's a lot of subjects to figure out all on my own, all year long. Starting to feel a little nervous and overwhelmed.
Please share if there's a method to your madness and any helpful resources, guides, etc for how you figure out what to teach all year.
Does anybody use their district's/county's/state's curriculum guidelines?
ETA: sorry about my title typo. On my phone and I guess it likes "decided" better.
