Kindergarten curriculum

Kindergarten for Monkey 2013-2014 

This is what we have been using this year. We do not use everything on this list daily. Reading, writing, and math is all that I require to consider it a school day. Anything else is bonus! Science does get done most of the time, though, because it's her favorite. 

Language arts:
Phonics: Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading
Handwriting: Handwriting Without Tears level K
Reading: Readers from the library and The Magic Treehouse books. 

Read alouds:
Sonlight p4/5 as a booklist
Illustrated classics for girls (Usborne)
A Little Princess (abridged)
Brave Emily (AG)
Heidi (abridged)
Little Women (abridged)
Little House in the Big Woods
*I will add to this list as we finish new books*

Math:
