I can't believe that I am about to start my second year of homeschooling. Cricket and I had a wonderful year last year and we both learned SO much! We are still technically in the preschool phase since Cricket is only 4. However, Cricket is ready to progress from where we were last year and she does better when challenged. I do realize that I have a lot planned for my little four year old, but I'm willing to drop back and punt if things don't go as planned (can you tell we're ready for football season).
Without further ado here is our K4 2011-2012 Curriculum Plan:
Expedition Earth by Confessions of a Homeschooler
You Can Read by 1+1+1=1
Horizon Math, Grade K
Towards the end of the school year once we have completed all the You Can Read Sets we will be doing a theme or unit study each week. Here is what I currently have planned:
Forest and Camping
I planned all this out using the Weekly Homeschool Planner by Homeschool Creations. Let me preface this by saying I've learned I don't like planning! However I did really like the layout of this planner. If you haven't already planned out your school year I suggest you go pick up this gem. Also, it's a PDF file so you can use it over and over again every year! (I even joined the affiliate program I like it so much)
I also want to include art and science, but these aren't planned yet and will be flexible based on schedule and interest. Most of my art ideas are coming from this amazing site Pineapple Paint Brush.
I am posting this at the "Not" Back to School Blog Hop and I can't wait to go check out what everyone else is doing.
