Geography? For First Grade?
I know, I thought the same thing when I first perused the curriculum I chose for my daughter. But I went with it. I searched high and low into every single subject and was able to see glimmers of what other veteran moms did and asked questions in forums, etc. But I thought, since we're nearly done with this first year and my daughter so looks forward to this subject when she sees it's on our schedule for the week, that it would be beneficial for other homeschool families to see a deep dive into this subject.
When we first started researching schools for our kids, we stumbled upon Montessori. I had heard about it in my single days, but didn't really pay much attention because I didn't have any children yet. I wish I had because implementing Montessori philosophy at home from birth would have greatly simplified and helped guide from the very start how to turn every thing into a beautiful learning moment. You know what the good thing is? If you have small children, it's not too late. Also, by reframing how you see your home from your child's eyes, it's actually pretty easy to implement at home.
