We are already two weeks into our school year and we are using some really great curriculum this year! Today I am revealing our curriculum choices for our 2016-2017 Kindergarten school year.
This year we are working on core subjects to expand on reading, writing, spelling and math concepts that we laid a foundation for last year. We will continue with a Bible study and personal devotion time each day. We are adding a World Geography study with a global perspective that includes animal classifications for science. We are also going to try an Art program and Keyboarding for fun. I can’t forget to add that we will also be utilizing our public library for tons of great (and free) resources.
Here are our curriculum choices for our 2016-2017 school year for Kindergarten:
- Grapevine Bible Study Traceable versions: Old Testament Part 3, The Birth of Jesus, and The Resurrection

These are my curriculum picks for this school year! I just want to remind you that when you are choosing curriculum for your family please remember that every child learns at a different pace and in different ways. This is even true in my own family with my own children. Although it is great to be able to glean ideas and learn about the different types of curriculum available as homeschoolers, we should all be careful not to compare our students or even our homeschooling methods with others. Tailor your student’s learning environment to what suits them best and make your homeschooling fit your family’s needs!
