About Me

I am a crunchy Christian mom to four boys and one girl ♥ We are a homeschooling Family. Our family can't stay still for long. We are always on the move. Our homeschool is inspired by The Well Trained Mind, Waldorf, and a bit of Charlotte Mason. Our lives are inspired by The Word of God, Jesus, Miracles, and sunshine when we can find it.

The Warrior Grade 1

Along with the following plans, he will be very active and do lots of art projects. We plan on joining the YMCA. He might take art lessons from his Aunt.

Read Alouds

I'll probably pull read alouds from the booklist for Ambleside Online 1.
The Little House in the Big Woods
Holling C. Holling Books
Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
King of the Golden River by John Ruskin
Peter Pan (or, Peter Pan and Wendy) by James M. Barrie (parents may want to read this one aloud to edit, see below)
Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi
The Red Fairy Book by Andrew Lang
St. George and the Dragon by Margaret Hodges
The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams
Pocahontas by Ingri D'Aulaire

English/Language Arts
We are following this scope and sequence from Ambleside Online
He will continue to work on phonics till he can read. We are using Explode the Code and ProgressivePhonics.com.
Oral narrations
Italics Book A
First Language Lessons 1.

Math U See Primer

Story of the World 3

Science probably won't be a huge point this year. Reading is that most important point. I know little boys love Science though. His brothers are doing Real Science 4 Kids Biology. My plan is to just order library books on the same subjects & have him do a notebook page for each subject.
