As I had mentioned it in a previous post and I had no other inspiration today, I thought I would write a quick note about our curriculum choice for this year. Last year for kindergarten I attempted to use a prepared curriculum that was very experiential (think Montessori). Needless to say that wasn’t a good fit for Adela or I. It wasn’t so much the activities or philosophy it was the lack of a easy to follow plan. We ended up creating our own curriculum from materials and such we had on hand. We wanted for her first grade experience to be a bit more formal as in second grade we will be required to start providing documentation to the state. Anyway Steven and I went to the NC homeschooling conference earlier this summer and browsed through many different choices. We ended up deciding on a curriculum that is completely planned out that I can just add to as I want to. So far it has been great and I love that all the textbooks and materials come with it. Anyway boring post is now over.
