2013-2014 School Year: Curriculum

nbts-blog-hop-2013Although we have been doing a few things here and there during the summer, we officially started school last week. Below is what we are using for our curriculum. It looks like a lot, but we don’t do all the subjects every day, except Language Arts and Math. The bolded items are what we mainly work on, and the others are done if there is extra time. We try to get school done by lunchtime (except for MOPS days when school is in the afternoons), and Melody can mostly do a lot of it on her own. Emily is slowly getting the rhythm. All of our activities start next month, and we can’t wait for all the exciting things that this school year will bring!


Melody – 1st grade/2nd grade

Emily – PreK

Both girls
