If you’re anything like my husband and me, every year we get so excited to explore new curriculum options for the upcoming year. There are many curriculum choices out there and as homeschooling parents, we all seek to find what's most appropriate for each child that we plan to homeschool for the upcoming year.
I create all of the lesson plans we do together as a group. At the beginning of every school year, I sit down and make roughly 20 different lesson plans with lots of activities that all of our children can enjoy. I create them in a way that our 1st grader's and preschooler's minds are stimulated and holds their attention, yet allows our toddler to run around and join in. The great thing about this is that I can use these lesson plans year after year to entertain our younger ones, while the oldest adds more to his workload.
Please come back for more future posts about how I create these lesson plans and how easy it is for you to do so as well.
Some items that we do together outside of our lesson plan are included below.

As I mentioned above and you see on our schedule, you’ll notice that our first grader does lesson plans with our preschooler and toddler. We tend to lesson plan related activities toward the end of the day after the little ones wake up from their nap. During their nap time, however, our first grader and I sit down and do our “book work.”
Please find our curriculum choices for our 1st grader down below.
Here are some additional readers we have included. I will add more to this collection for my 1st grader to read and post them for you all soon.
Preschool and Toddler choices are listed below.
Stay tuned and sign up for updates. Old Blue Finds Phonics will be available for purchase on Amazon soon.
That sums up the majority of what we’ll be doing this year. I hope you’ll do some good research and find what works best for your family.
Let me know in the comments below what your favorite curriculum is that you're using this year.
Happy homeschooling and remember to “willfully serve His children” throughout your own homeschool day.
