Our Curriculum and Schedule: 2010 - 2011 (UPDATED)


I've had a few homeschooling friends write recently about what curriculum and programs they're going to be using in the upcoming year for their children so I thought I would share ours as well. This is not an endorsement or ad for these products, they're just what we've chosen to use. My son is going to be a kindergartner in the fall. I've made up a big binder to keep track of our activities and progress. I realize we don't technically *have* to school him yet but he's so excited about doing "school stuff" that I want to encourage that enthusiasm. AND if he were going to public school this year, he'd be doing it all and a lot more from what I've seen.
Originally, I thought I'd take one subject a day to get him used to the idea of homeschooling but he's really excited and pretty much knows what we're going to be doing. Plus, doing it that way wouldn't really give us enough to do during the day. And I plan on using our first week of school as an orientation week - introducing him to the subjects and letting him see what all we'll be doing.
So we're doing several subjects a day, plus Bible and music. Fridays are Art Days where we are going to work on projects (like a craft celebrating a holiday or a birthday card for a family member) or read about different types of art. And of course, our homeschool co-op will be meeting twice a month. As far as our curriculum and schedules goes, this is what I have planned:

SUBJECTS WE'RE DOING

Reading and Language Arts, Music, History, Letters & Phonics, Math, Science, Health, Social Studies, Bible

RESOURCES WE'RE USING
~ Letter of the Week curriculum from Confessions of a Homeschooler
Lesson Pathways
Starfall
AAA Math
Free Lapbooks from Lapbook Lessons
~ Lots of resources from 1+1+1=1 and Homeschool Creations
KidzoneMaking Learning Fun and DLTK for games, craft ideas, worksheets and coloring pages
~ We're also going to use a few workbooks and things we've gotten from some of my fellow homeschooling moms AND we have lots of flash cards, games and crafts that Zeke's gotten from family members.
