Kindergarten Fall

We’re over a month into our homeschool adventure and thought I would share the rhythm we’ve settled into and what we’re doing!

Monday to Friday:

Morning:

Bible/Devotional/Prayer/Scripture memory/Singing/Calendar

Table work: Handwriting/Math/Phonics

Afternoon:

We choose different subjects and activities depending on the day/weather. Our usual pursuits to choose from are: outdoors/geography/music/art/poetry/visiting friends/field trips.

And of course, lots and lots of playtime, read alouds, and real life sprinkled throughout all this!

On Wednesday Liam spends a full day at a private Christian school as part of their homeschool extension program.

History:

Begin a simple book of centuries to jot down historical events from readings. For Grade 1 we plan to start Susan Wise Bauer’s Story of the World Book 1.

Read Alouds

We love Sarah MacKenzie’s monthly picture book lists available here. They are themed and relate to holidays and seasonal activities. Great choices!

We have also begun to work through chapter book read alouds with Liam at bedtime. This fall we are reading Little House in the Big Woods and he is hooked!
