You can also get a copy of "what your 1st grader needs to Know" and use it as a guide. Then you can get add in what you need like a math book or science.
The problem with complete curriculums is that often have one subject work great but then another is a total bust and you need buy something else that will work. Then you just wasted money KWIM?
That's why I like the general "grade guides" to give me an general outline and I fill in based on my son's needs.
This also allows you to move ahead or stay behind depending on their skills and not waste a "1st grade curriculum" when you really need a 2nd grade reading, 1st grade math, and 3rd grade science.
www.tanglewood.com has free grade level schedules that have reading lists and suggested math and spelling, etc books but you could easily use their schedules and add in what you want. Just another idea to show you options.
Rebecca Rupp has a good book about designing your own curriculum that is very helpful as well-check your library.

It is rather easy to make your day more structured, without using a curriculum.
