First Grade Curriculum: 2017-2018

back 2 schoolDear Homeschooler,

With so many great choices for curriculum out there, it may be hard to decide what to choose. I have found that over the years that sometimes trial and error is the only way to find what works for you and your family.

Here is what we are doing for first grade:


I stagger some of this curricula, so my first grader doesn’t get overwhelmed. We focus on the All About Reading and just do the reading and grammar from the Lightning Literature.


  • Zaner-Bloswer Handwriting, Grade 1


  • Sinapore Math 1A and 1B
  • Daily review worksheets





Read Alouds

These  are just some of the books on our list this year:

  • Heirloom Audio Productions
  • A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  • The Trumpet of the Swan by E.B. White
  • Redwall by Brian Jacques



  • Basher Basics Music: Hit the Right Note & Penny Whistle
  • My First Sewing Book
  • Upward Soccer
  • Upward Basketball
  • Ballet and Tumble
  • Cooking
  • Lego Club

Till Next Time,
