This year is the first year for us to teach the Squirrel at home and scouring the Web is my new moonlighting job. So, without further ado....
Story Elements and Spectrum Reading workbooks will accentuate other elements not covered in the code books.
Not pictured is Handwriting Without Tears printing book to improve her current writing abilities. Squirrel wants to learn cursive, but we agreed to improve the printing first, so that is the current summer project. This is a great book and curriculum for teaching writing.
I've ordered a variety of chapter books, such as Pippi Longstocking and The Boxcar Children, as well as utilizing the library for more books and classic literature.
Mathematics is Life of Fred, the first two volumes. I plan to provide worksheets and handwritten problems for her based on the chapter. I like it, but I'm not sure it's for us yet. I'll let the Squirrel lead the way. My 2nd choice was Teaching Textbooks. I definitely want that program for next year.
For art, I am going to teach some chalk pastel art, from Southern Hodgepodge. This looks like lots of fun for us and her. This as well as other artsy projects that tie in with the other subjects.
Trying to stay basic, make it fun, and avoid going overboard! Let the fun begin.
