- Hello, I am Teacher of One, a former public school teacher (15 years! Art & 2nd Grade) who is setting out to educate my one and only G (5). This will be our first "official" year of homeschooling but as he has never attended daycare or preschool I suppose I have been homeschooling him since birth.
- Our days will be quite relaxed... as they are already. The "goal" is to work from 10-12 on basic lessons but we will use as little or as much time needed to accomplish the lessons. As we have not officially started school, the following are the topics I hope to cover each day. You'll have to check back to see if it really works. LOL
We'll start each day with a Math Meeting, similar to this one, to build skills that are not a part of the MUS concentration.
Math U See will be our spine this year but I also plan to break up the instruction with short unit studies.
Ordinary Parents Guide to Reading & Simple Readers like Bob Books and Starfall will help us learn to read.
Book baskets filled with Read Alouds, Old Friends, & Resources
I hope to cover Community and Holidays in Social Studies this year.
Science will really be G led... nature, experiment books, animals, insects
Gym... play, Y sports, & gymnastics
Games... I plan on breaking up book lessons with play lessons to reinforce skills.
Music and Art will be thrown in at various times throughout the year.
