This year we will be doing Ancient World History.
1. Internet-Linked Encyclopedia of World History
2. The Story of the World (Revised Edition)
3. Ancient Greeks
4. Tut's Mummy: Lost... and Found
5. Egyptian Activity Book Creative Fun
6. History Pockets: Ancient Civilizations
As we go through the timeline we will also borrow books from the library to get a better understanding of anything we are learning.
We may dabble in Geography with our Beginning Geography workbook as well.(We are halfway through this as of 4.13.13)
We will be working on Spelling (Grade 2) and Grammar (Grade 1) with National Treasures Workbooks that I printed for free.
We will also be learning Spanish with some cds and English-Spanish Everything for Early Learning.
We will continue reading our Magic Tree House books,
We will be creating lapbooks and doing various art projects based on what we are learning, and voilá, we have art covered too!
While this curriculum is more age appropriate for Jayden, Caitlin will be joining us for pretty much anything she is interested in doing. Reading time will be the only mandatory time for her. We will continue working on alphabet and numerical recognition, as well as phonics and basic addition.
None of this is really set in stone. This is our first official year so if we find something isn't working for us, I will definitely change it up. That's the beauty of homeschooling! I also have a couple of ideas in mind for things I'd like to do, I'm just still trying to figure out how to incorporate it all.
