Can you teach same curriculum for more than one grade.

I have a kindergartner and a second grader I landed BJU Heratige studies and Science 2 for second grade at a great used price. this is the first time iv ever been able to buy a curriculum thats open and go. MY question is can i also have my kinder do the same lessons and may be just use a blank note book and have her draw or write her own note book page. but then she would be doing the same curriculum again when she is in second grade.

I don't see why not- I would just have her listen in on the lesson- participate in any projects, but adapt all else for her level/interest. I would not expect her to participate in every part of it though.

I think she would do well with a great deal of the science and some of the history will be ok for her. I just wasent sure about her repeating the same curriculum over again when she gets in second grade.

Repeating a curriculum is not a big deal. The beauty of a subject like science is you can always get more in-depth and detailed.

there doesn't seem to be much in the way of science curriculum for Kindergarten. Should I list the same lessons pg numbers and units that the BJU teacher book gives that I am listing for my 2nd grader or should I list it differently and more general like "how plants grow" or "parts of the body" and leave it at that for kindergarten.

This seems to me to be something that is really going to be personal. You may need to just see how she does with things.
