Math: The first lessons are reviews of counting and writing numbers before we get into the nitty gritty of it all. This is something I really like about this curriculum that I got--the pace is not too fast and you're constantly reviewing what you previously learned along with new material.
Geography/World Atlas: The first lessons were what a map was and how things look from a bird's eye view. While the first couple lessons were fairly simple the last one we did was a bit startling since it seemed to require a seasoned reader. There was a simple map with street names and to name what streets the various buildings were on. Before we started I told Hannah what the streets were, and she did so well! I was honestly anticipating to become frustrated. :/ I guess if I did become frustrated that it would have been more my fault, since I had been expecting it. The possibilities of frustrations should probably be left at the door when homeschooling, or at least kept in check as to not discourage your child.
Language: The curriculum for this subject has a "Charlotte Mason" flavor, as so stated on the workbook. Charlotte Mason is a method of homeschooling which I guess all homeschoolers use to a certain extent. The first page in the workbook had a painting that Hannah had to make up a story about off the top of her head (the painting was of some sheep and chickens in a barn). Hannah threw in some dialogue between the animals telling each other to not be afraid of the hay or something like that. LOL I really enjoyed that exercise. I should just do that when we see random pictures.
Thinking Skills: Through doing these exercises, I finding out what a great memory Hannah has! Very impressive! We have four workbooks to go through, so it will be exciting to see how far she comes.
Art: We don't have an actual curriculum. After we do the first part of school in the morning, Hannah enjoys painting. I give assignments such as making pictures of us going to big church and spending the night at Papaw's house--just whatever is going on in our lives. Through a local online homeschool group, I learned of some art classes at Advantage Learning Center I can sign her up for. My goal for this coming week is to get details on that and, depending on how much it is, sign her up.
I can guarantee every week won't be so exciting I will post a summary of it. :) I'm just really thrilled that the first week went so well!
