Re: Kindergarten questions
1. Do you use grades in kindergarten?
No grades. If something is wrong, I ask questions and guide until the correct answer is discovered by my child.
2. How long do you HS your kindergartener?
Depending on the day, one to two hours. We do calendar time, Bible lesson, Science (L.I.F.E.) ETC, Funnix Math and Phonics, US History & Geography (Adventures in America), continent unit studies, HWOT and P.E./music/art. Not every subject is done every day though.
3. How do you do your work box system?
I feel like I'm spamming this pic but here is our set up:
DS1 uses the 10 drawer unit. Every unit is a subject and DS1 goes through them all each weekday, basically at his own pace. Some drawers have things like snacks or fun games, it's not all intense workbooks.
