H played at school here and there throughout last year, but this is the first year that she will actually be doing school daily. As per the trivium, we’re starting out with a foundation in the basics before expanding her educational repertoire.
Her weekly schedule follows:
Monday – Math, Handwriting, Reading, and Bible.
Tuesday – Math, Handwriting, Reading, and Bible.
Wednesday – Math, Handwriting, Reading, and Bible.
Thursday – Library and Art (with S).
Friday – Math, Handwriting, Reading, and Bible.
H picked up a few things last year and so she’s not starting at square one, but her curricula is pretty basic. Here is the curricula we are using:
Math – H will begin to use Saxon Math Homeschool. She will start with level K.
Handwriting – H will begin by learning to write the upper and lower case alphabets, and then move on to copywork on handwriting sheets I custom design at the Writing Wizard website.
Reading – H will use the Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Teaching Reading. I used it successfully with N and C.
Bible – I will work through a children’s Bible with H, and will give her appropriate memory verses weekly.
Art: H will join S to work on basic drawing skills using the Usborne Step-by-Step Drawing Book.
