First Grade Schedule

About a month ago I uploaded a blog with my Kindergarten / Pre-School Schedule so I figure it's about time that I shared my First Grade Schedule. This is my basic schedule of subjects but we don't necessarily do all of the subjects daily.

So here is our First Grade Schedule:

  • Devotional

-Weekly memory verse

-Morning Routine

-Pledge to the Christian Flag

-Pledge to the Bible

-Lords Prayer

-Pledge of Allegiance

-Alphabet song

-Days of the week song

-Months of the year song

  • Calendar Time


-Review yesterday and tomorrow


-Daily notebook

  • Phonics

  • Combination practice

  • Arithmetic

  • Language

  • Spelling

  • Writing

  • Creative writing

  • Poetry

  • Health, Safety, & Manners

  • Geography

  • History

  • Science

  • Computer Science (Code)

  • Reading

I always spend a couple weeks at the beginning of the new school year getting all Jellybean's work sheets printed out and organized in file folders by subject. He has work sheets for arithmetic, language, writing, and spelling which he does daily. We always do phonics, combination practice, poetry, and reading each day as well, but the rest of the subjects vary. Some weeks we do science experiments, some days we read about American history, some weeks we study American or Canadian Geography. It truly does bounce around a lot. Both boys really enjoy doing Computer science, but we've been taking a bit of a break from doing it daily since Littlebean broke the mouse on my laptop. We are currently looking into getting a school computer that is just for the kids, but until then they aren't touching my computer. After we get home I plan on getting more organized about our floating subjects and get them pinned down to a specific day to make a more concrete subject schedule that easier for us all to follow. I may through out the year add some other subjects, as we are looking at some local Co-op classes starting in the new year. As well local homeschool days that are run monthly by the zoo, aquarium, museums, library and parks that you can enroll in. The first official year of homeschooling can be a little overwhelming so I hope this helps anyone who is interested in starting homeschool and has a little one in First Grade.
