Yesterday marked our first day back to homeschool. While we never really stop learning here, we stick to a structured day from September-June. We started homeschooling three years ago, but this is our first year of compulsory learning and the first year we have had to declare intent. Micah started first grade, while Maeby began her final year of preschool. Abram is along for the ride and has been very enthusiastic to chime in.

This is our first year using textbook curriculums for Math and Reading. We have mostly used workbooks and printouts, with supplemental books depending on the topics we were learning about. We chose to go with Math to Learn because it introduces mathematic concepts and gives detailed examples of mathematical processes appropriate for grades 1-2.
I have finally stopped saying that Micah can read x amount of words. I figured it is safe to say that he can read. He reads anything and everything he can get his hands on. We chose Jacob’s Ladder because it is geared towards advanced and gifted children. We decided to start with Primary 2 (grades 1-2) because Micah already has the foundation for Primary 1 (kindergarten-grade 1). The main objective of the book is to get students to think more critically about the text, in turn building comprehension and analytical skills.
In the next coming weeks, I’ll be giving updates on how these books are working out for us.
