Homeschool Preschool 2013-2014
However, I feel called to teach my son at home. It is very important to me that I lay a strong foundation for him.
Here is what we are using for curriculum:
Mother of Divine Grace School Kinder Curriculum
Before Five in a Row
Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons
Golden Books Workbooks
Music: Classical Music for Children (Prekinders Blog)
Art: Pulling a lot from MaryAnn F. Kohl's books. Also trying to get my hands on Mommy It's a Renoir!
Main places of inspiration and reference:The Well Trained Mind
Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum
Elizabeth Foss-Storybook Year
Poetry 3 minutes
Reading 15 minutes
Religion 15 minutes
Art/Math (rotate) 15 minutes
Evening: Literature and music
Our religion instruction will include a morning offering, mass readings, and 1 decade of the rosary per day.
The Before Five in a Row is a great way to continue loving books and incorporating fun activities related to the books. And of course, playdates, TORCH activities, and trips to local places of interest.
Wish me luck!
