2011-2012 Curriculum Choices

This year, I have one first grader, and one kindergartener.  Last year, we didn't do much besides Phonics, Math, Handwriting, and Geography with L for kindergarten.  But this year, we're busting out the big guns and starting Tapestry of Grace, Year 1.  I canNOT wait to get started! Here's the rest of what we're doing for L's first grade year by subject:

Grammar: First Language Lessons by Peace Hill Press
Writing: Writing With Ease (Peace Hill Press) and Writing Aids (Tapestry of Grace) (They're totally different and we'll do a little of each
Phonics/Reading/Spelling: Sing, Spell, Read, and Write Grand Tour I and II
Math: Math-U-See Alpha
Music/Piano: Music for Little Mozarts Beginner Piano series
Science: Doing our own thing, 20 weeks of Animal Kingdom, 10 weeks of human body, 6 weeks of plant kingdom
History/Geography/Bible/Literature: Tapestry of Grace Year One
Art: Artistic Pursuits and a few "Come Look With Me" books

K's Kindergarten:
Phonics/Reading: Sing, Spell, Read and Write On Track and then Raceway
Math: Math-U-See Primer
Handwriting: Handwriting Without Tears My Printing Book

I'm hoping that she'll be interested and will participate in our Tapestry activities with us, and sit in on science as well.  She'll be required to start piano this year as well, using the same thing as L.  We'll do it all together.

Looking forward to getting all this good stuff started on Monday!  I'm just about ready and organized!
