I am currently enjoying Christian Light Education (CLE) for Math, Learning to Read and Language Arts. I am also using Time4Learning as a supplement. I love the ease of teaching with CLE and my boys like that they need little guidance from me other than to explain new concepts to them.

We use Rod and Staff for phonics, Math-U-See for math, and living books for history. That is our only formal stuff for 1st grade.

This is our first grade year and all of our curric has been a hit. We are using FLL, WWE, AAS, SM, SOTW, and RSO.

Lemme know if you need help with those acronyms. ;)

My first grade plan:

Reading: finishing OPGTR in August or September, plus ETC
Math: Saxon 1
Grammar: FLL 1
Writing: WWE 1
History: SOTW
Science: Maybe RSO, but I might just follow dd's interests using Let's-Read-and-Find-Out books. They're written well (informative and fun) and they all have an experiment or other activity t go with the topic. Super easy.
Geography: mom-made study
Art: Artistic Pursuits

I'll add another! We're loving 1st grade Hooked on Phonics. Last week DS had to read and follow the instructions to make a paper car. He LOVED it! Art, science, history are through Classical Conversations. More than likely we'll stick with Singapore math and maybe supplement with something else if I feel the need.

I am pretty sure this is what we're going to do:goodvibes: This year we didn't have a set routine and curriculum but I i'm finding my DS needs a bit more structure.

We used etc for phonics and Singapore for math. Everything else was child led.
