Kindergarten Homeschool Curriculum

I honestly can’t believe that it has been over four years since we began our journey in homeschooling.  In Pre-K, I wrote down a list of all of the “subjects” or topics that I thought were important for children to learn and spent my son’s Pre-K year simply picking interesting topics and going over them together.  We learned about Japanese spider crabs, ABCs, and our emotions.  Through this relaxed early learning, I realized that I could teach my son, but starting kindergarten homeschool was still a scary proposition.

It got real.

The world has expectations for kindergarten!  These days, schools are pushing five year old children through their ABCs and 123s into sight words and reading.  Ready or not, here it all comes.  Due to this, I felt worried that I would somehow fail these standards and not be “enough.”  What I learned instead was grace, peace, and patience.

Your kindergartner does not need to reach some magical standard.  Your kindergartner needs God’s grace, peace, and patience just as much as you do.

So as you read my suggestions for kindergarten curriculum, take a deep breath.  Realize that what you do or do not get done this year is just a part of your journey.  You are learning to be your child’s teacher and your child is learning to be a lifelong learner.  Bumps are to be expected!  There is grace for every bump along the way.

Homeschool Choices - Boholistic Mom

Choosing a homeschool curriculum can be a daunting decision.  There are so many choices and tons of options.  Many homeschool mamas are so passionate about their family’s choices that they will swear to you that their way is the only possible option for homeschooling well.  Take a deep breath.  And find a few homeschool friends that are a little less passionate about their own decisions and more passionate about helping you find the correct decision for YOUR family.

I will gladly tell a new homeschool mama about the choices I have made, but if I give you the impression that any other decision is the wrong decision, smack me.  I do not intend to give that impression and in this post I will share what I am doing.  If you find my path beneficial, join me.  If you find your path elsewhere, I hope my path helped you to clarify your path.  We are all in this journey together.

Our 2nd Grade Homeschool Curriculum for 2016-2017

I am a creature of habit.  I find something I like and I stick to it.  Especially when it comes to education.  I am leery of switching curricula regularly, because I want to provide a cohesive education.  That is one of my reasons for homeschooling is so that my son will not be uprooted from his schools every single time we move.  I want him to have stability and learn to see things through as much as possible.

Below is the list of my curriculum choices for our family.  I have been blessed with one son who is entering the 2nd grade.  We hope […]
