One of the things I have recently started teaching the kids was Health. I believe it’s important for them to learn how to make healthy choices in their life. I was really happy to review Horizons First Grade Health Set by Alpha Omega Publications with my daughter. Alpha Omega Publications is a christian based curriculum. This set is complete with everything you need to teach your child.
The Horizons First Grade Health Set came with a Teachers Guide and Student Workbook. The teachers guide is step by step and contains 50 lessons. It also lists materials, objectives, lesson overviews, released activities, and suggested books and songs. The student workbook is very colorful and contains visuals and activities.
Students LOVE to learn about King Tut and Ancient Egypt! Download a FREE lesson for kids about Ancient Egypt and jump into King Tut’s history! The freebie has several activities included in this pack, including reading comprehension, math review, map skills, and timeline practice, so there are a multiple ways to use them.
Use these fun pages to practice place value and/or addition and subtraction skills! Page 12 of the King Tut Mini-Unit Freebie asks students use the symbols to determine the number. The following page goes a step further and asks students add or subtract numbers.
School for us will start September 1st and will run until August 31st. Yes I school all year round. In summer we have lighter schedules. I do know that we will be incorporating homeschool gym into our schedule. However, I am not sure when that starts up at the YMCA. I know there is also an art co-op they have after gym class. Once I figure out the day I can add it to my schedule. I know that I will be adding in living skills but that is just going to get put in as we do them.
Science is one of my kid’s favorite subjects. You through in hands on activities and my kids are in heaven. They learn so much more by doing hands on activities. I was really happy to have the chance to review Science Unit Studies for Homeschoolers by Funtastic Unit Studies. This book was created for ages 4 – 13.
Today I am sitting down finalize the curriculum we are using so I can start creating a schedule. There are a copy things I am thinking of adding in yet. Once I finalize the curriculum I can start a schedule for the kids. From being able to review different homeschool curriculum I have found new things that are working with my kids. Also some of our curriculum got put on the back burner and I am going to bring that out and finish it up.
