"If Psalm 1 is to be believed, we must not allow our children to stand, sit or walk with those who deny biblical truth and morality. Instead, we must place them in situations that will aid them in meditating on the law of the Lord 'day and night.' Surely this involves how and where they are to be educated." — Voddie T. Baucham Jr.

Math for 2015

I wanted to put down my plans for math for the rest of the year. We finished up Singapore Math Earlybird K book B in January. But instead of jumping into the first grade book I decided to go through their Essential Math K books A and B. But upon receiving them I determined that the A book was a little too simplistic for Janelle. So I started James in the A book and Janelle in the B book.
After starting I wanted Janelle to get a good understanding of her math facts before she moved into addition and subtraction. I had been eyeing Right Brained Additiin and Subtraction for about a year and finally decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did because I love it. We've been using the program for only one week and James can identify numbers one through ten. Which he couldn't do at the beginning of the week. I'll make a review post on the whole program. 
When we're done with that we'll go back to fininshing up Essential Math B.
The rest of the year will go as follows:
Right Brained Place Value
Singapore Math 1A
Singapore Math 1B
Right Brained Multiplication and Division

We are also doing Life of Fred once a week, and Khan Academy. 

That's my plan, but I will definitely stop or slow down if I need to. As Charlotte Mason says "follow the child, not the curriculum.
