1st grade -k

2010-2011 First Grade


She will finish Christian Light Education’s Learning to Read and do Reading 1 for the first half of the year. Then we will spend the rest of our time reading trade books starting with the First Favorites Collection from Veritas Press. Her brother had such fun with this that I just had to take time to have her do it as well. It’s important young readers experience quality books, what Charlotte Mason called “living books”, instead of just levelized readers. She will also be starting new subjects this year: social studies, Bible, and science. I have a lot of these materials already from her brother. I just need to purchase the consumables like workbooks for her.

Science will grab for several different sources. Each of these stand alone programs is pretty basic so I think they should coordinate well together for a well rounded, fun, introductory science program.

Winter Promise: The World Around Me

This basic literature and activity program was bought for her brother a few years ago, but was too easy for him. I think it will be perfect for her now.
