We began our Kindergarten curriculum in Spring of 2014, when my son was 4. He turned 5 in July, and then I had baby #3 in August. The early start on the curriculum was with the expectation that we’d take a long break in late pregnancy and after the baby arrived. That didn’t happen to quite the degree I was prepared for, so we wrapped it all up in March 2015 and went right on into our planned 1st Grade curriculum.
After attempting a couple of other reading programs, I eventually moved to All About Reading and it was an enormous success – G finished Level 1 & Level 2 in three months each, and he also completed All About Spelling Level 1.
I never felt completely satisfied with math, as detailed in my math update post linked below.
For extras, G was in AWANA again (his first year in Sparks), and continued with taekwondo (earning his orange belt in the regular classes, after being promoted from the tot class where he earned his yellow belt). We also participated in a local homeschool group for once-a-month meetups. His favorite was the February meeting – it was a Valentine’s Day party, with lots of cards and candy.
