A rare, mostly homeschooling post.
At the beginning of the lesson year for us I read an article on distilling down what each year should entail for each child.
For us that has been
grade five: five ancient cultures/epochs, geometry, North American geography, life.
grade two: reading, place value, playing with numbers, life.
dreamland age 5?: play, play, play. listen to stories, move her body, crafts, songs, life.
toddler: my constant companion, slipping away now and then to join in with the others.
When I start to get bogged down, when the 3 am homeschooling night terrors hit, when something is lost in the recesses of the mind or it appears to be that way:
I reach down to the bottom of that murky pit and bring up this list.
Then we keep on keepin’ on.
A smattering of materials we have very currently in use:
Christopherus grades 1, 2, 5
Live Ed grade 5
Path of Discovery grades 1, 2, 5
Enki kindergarten, grades 1, 2
