The programs we have chose to use this year are:
- My Father's World K--this covers Bible, Science, some phonics, some math, some penmanship classical music and read-alouds so far.. This program is pretty hands-on and the girls have enjoyed it. Each 'week' is broken up into 'Units'. For each unit is a letter, Bible concept and according assignments that particularly link with the Science. We bought two packs of the Student sheets, so each girl gets their own 'binder'.
- Explode the Code 1 1/2. This is for my 5 year old. She finished ETC 1 in pre-k 4. She also finished Level 2 Bob Books this year, so we are just having her read from other books and yesterday, she read a passage out of the Bible to us.
- Cursive Practice book. She (5 year old) began writing EARLY and begged to learn cursive this year. I don't push it, but let her practice as she wants. She can write her name legibly in cursive, although not 'typical' cursive, but hey! It looks good and she is excited. My 3 year old can write her name in print and we just buy her workbooks to further practice her printing skills, along with what MFW offers.
- Kumon workbooks. We use them for many things for both girls. Simple addition, writing, cut and paste, tracing, and numbers. These books are very colorful and available at my local Barnes and Noble.
- Math U See practice worksheets website. We print off practice Alpha sheets from the website for the oldest girl to do. She LOVES sitting beside her brother (6th grade who is in Epsilon) and 'doing' Math.
- Last year we did a lot of Lapbooks. We haven't done any as of yet this year, but hopefully soon.
- The girls have been sitting in with the older boys on Bible time and have either been reading along, or 'telling' us a Bible story as we go. It has worked wonderful!
