Giant Homeschool Book Haul for 1st Grade

We are starting our first grade homeschool here at the Wannabe Homestead and we’ve got a ton of new books. We’re following the Classical Model of Education BUT you don’t have to follow the Classical model to enjoy these books- I think they’d be awesome for any 1st grader!

Our Classical First Grade Curriculum

So far, my daughter and I have been taking homeschooling nice and slow but now that she is six, I’m ramping learning up by adding more subjects.  We’re following the Classical model of education which I believe to be the most clear-cut and time-tested form of education there is (that’s just my opinion, there are other great models too).

My 2013 Reading List

I’m always fascinated by other people’s reading lists, and hopefully you won’t find mine too boring. That said, this post should be titled “My 2013 Reading List That I Won’t Read.”  I love the idea of reading but I hardly do it enough. Pretty sad, right? I’m determined to change that though.
