Kindergarten Curriculum Choices 2016-2017

Out of all the years of homeschooling (this being our 5th) this is the one I'm most nervous about. There is a lot of pressure to make sure you kid can read, writing and do some basic math. I poured over curriculum and at the end of the day no one company had a box set that fit our needs 100%. Jace being an older kinder already knows a bunch. I needed to be able to customize because he would be bored learning basic shapes, numbers and letters ... again.

Here are our choices:

First Start Reading from Memoria Press
along with this is all of their reading and writing plus phonic books. It is almost their entire Kinder curriculum (minus math and copywork)

Patriotic Penmenship for copywork 

Math Lessons for Living Education from Masterbooks 

Plus Horizons Kindergarten Math (Jace wants variety but I just love the Masterbooks math so much more than horizons...)

Additional subject we will hit on these once or so a week:

Heath : Way Comes Home

Social Studies/Science:

Animal Atlas and Animal Planet books


Masterbooks Kindergarten Curriculum along with varies stories from a few children's bibles and devotionals we have.

ESA and Talking Fingers for online supplement 

Actually looking at this list I'm quite surprised by how everything except for the horizons math is a review product! Goes to show you that I've really liked what we have used for review products and I'm sticking with them. DID NOT receive product, press or compensation to facilitate this review.

  1. The teachers and staff at Phoenix kindergarten is very nurturing. My child returns singing melodies, and is very controlled at home. He also cleans up his toys without complain.
