Homeschool Curriculum for Grade 1

What are we using for our homeschool curriculum for grade 1 this year? I’ve been putting our plans together and thankfully I already own the majority of the things we’re going to be using.

From using them with her older brother, I think a lot of the  same material I can use with my daughter. I feel more pressure this year since she’s no longer in K to step up her learning and jump deeper into things.

Both of the kids have requested to learn about space so you’ll see more space printables on the blog as they come up. For science and history I use lapbooks and notebooking that I make myself. We read lots of books and add in some hands-on crafts.

I’m looking forward to this school year, and I’m trying to declutter my bookshelves and have uncovered some books I forgot I had, that’s horrible. My son is studying middle ages so I think we’ll start there with her too because I don’t want to teach two different time periods. I made space for her in her own cubby so she can easily find all of her books.

I had her stuff with the boys and they kept messing up her shelf and she wasn’t happy with it.

See how we homeschool the first grade and what homeschool curriculum for grade 1 I use with my daughter. She really loves everything we've done so far.

Homeschool Curriculum for Grade 1

Math – Singapore Math 1

 and Reading Eggs
Grammar – First Language Lessons
Phonics – Plaid Phonics B
Spelling – All About Spelling
Writing – Writing with Ease 1

I really like the first levels of First Language Lessons from the old book where it was merged as 2 levels. I haven’t seen the new books. I love Susan Bauer’s Story of the World history curriculum. We’ll be using it with my 4th grader but won’t be getting into it with my daughter this year.
