Curriculum 2012-2013

It’s that time of year again!  Time to plan out the curriculum.  It’s a fun and daunting task.  It’s our second year of homeschool so I’ve learned some valuable lessons from the first year that heavily influenced me.  I still think we’re classical and eclectic homeschoolers as far as style goes.

General for Fall 2012, 1st Grade (Bear) and 3rd Grade (Fuzzy):
  • 3 hours per day, 4 days per week is spent in structured time doing core subjects (math, reading, writing)
  • 3 hours per day, 4 days per week is spent loosely pursuing everything else (fine arts, history, science, critical thinking, playgroups, etc.).
  • 1 day per week is half drama class and half fun or catch-up time
Language Arts (penmanship, grammar, writing, spelling, phonics):
– This has been a tricky subject for me!
  • Phonics Road (Bear-1, Fuzzy-1,2,3)
  • 3Rs Plus READ Beginner Reading Instruction (Bear-1,2,3)
  • for extra LA practice (Bear)
  • Fine motor development activities to strengthen writing muscles (Bear)
  • Dad teaches this!  He doesn’t know yet.  🙂
World History / Geography:
Fine Arts:
  • Gymnastics Class (Fuzzy)
  • Outside Play (Bear, Fuzzy)
