We Have a Plan

October 3rd, 2010 by Nate

Mandi and I discussed how we are going to begin preschool (K4) beginning tomorrow.  We have developed a basic schedule what days we teach the main subjects.

The time spent on each item may take about 15 – 30 minutes per day.

Each week we plan to do:

  • Two days of formal math.
  • Everyday of about 15 minutes of fun reading and contextual math.
  • Two days of handwriting.
  • Two days of working in a reading primer (directed Starfall and accompanying activities).
  • One day of Latin or Greek vocabulary and writing.

Optional subjects.  Not necessarily done every week.

  • One day of informal history.  Coloring books or movie, etc..
  • One day of hands on science.

This translates into 5 – 10 hours a week over 5 days.  Some weeks will have more hours than others.  We will post our progress and changes as time goes by.
