Epi Kardia Christian Literature-based Homeschool Curriculum Using Charlotte Mason Methods
 

Kindergarten Program

kindergarten daily lesson plans, Christian kindergarten curriculum

Our Kindergarten Program contains daily lesson plans and includes everything you need (besides the books!) to teach:

history                                                  

science

phonics and sound formation

reading

handwriting and copywork

poetry

memorization of poetry and Bible verses

narration

projects

Using a Charlotte Mason approach to teaching and learning, this kindergarten curriculum utilizes high quality, beautifully illustrated whole, living books (not included) available at local and church libraries, used book stores or online at Amazon.com. To see which books we included in our daily lesson plans for kindergarten, click here.

One distinctive of this Christian kindergarten curriculum is that the phonics, handwriting and copywork lessons are taken from the books you are reading for history and science - reinforcing everything your child is learning!

The teacher's manual included tells how to teach kindergarten---from the supplies you will need (and how to organize them) to ideas for occupying busy toddlers while you are teaching.

 

Complete daily lesson plans are provided for you so you have less preparation time and can spend more of your time teaching and being a mommy!

As with the rest of Epi Kardia's curriculum, our Kindergarten Program is organized by the chronological study of history. This curriculum is divided into 11 historical units , with one additional unit on world geography. 

Most units are four weeks long, except the Civil War Unit (3 weeks) and the Immigration and Expansion Unit (5 weeks). A ‘school week’ is defined in this program as four days, and they are numbered, so you may do them consecutively without worrying about getting behind.

There are 45 four-day weeks for a total of 180 school days.  The Weekly Plans contain 45 weeks of plans, allowing some “wriggle room,” should you choose to spend an extra day or so on a unit or two. If you decide to teach kindergarten 5 days a week, you will have 36 weeks of school. Each day is numbered, but they are not assigned a specific day of the week to give you the flexibility to choose a 4-day or 5-day week.

 "A Child learns from 'Things.' --We older people, partly because of our maturer intellect, partly because of our defective education, get most of our knowledge through the medium of words.  We set the child to learn in the same way, and find him dull and slow.  Why?  Because it is only with a few words in common use that he associates a definite meaning; all the rest are no more to him than the vocables of a foreign tongue.  But set him face to face with a thing, and he is twenty times as quick as you are in knowledge about it; knowledge of things flies to the mind of a child as steel filings to magnet. 

Charlotte Mason (Vol. I, Part II --Out of Door Life For the Children, p. 67)

"The children must enjoy the book.  The ideas it holds must each make that sudden, delightful impact upon their minds, must cause that intellectual stir, which mark the inception of an idea."

Charlotte Mason (Vol. III, Chapter 16 ow to Use School-Books, p. 178)
