  1. Thanks for posting – I had never heard of the Young Scientist Club – looks like just the thing to get kids hooked on science! I’m newer at homeschooling, so I have a couple of questions . . . first, do you do any geography/history – I don’t see it on your list and I’m wondering how important it is to do history with my first-grader this year . . . and secondly, do you know in what grade kids typically begin to learn key-boarding? Thirdly, what curriculum are you using for “Run, Jump, & Run . . . ” LOL, just kidding of course 😉

    • Hi, thanks for stopping by. I believe the most important subjects are reading, writing and arithmetic at the early ages of 4 to 7. I’ll use some free online resources for my geography/history but nothing too heavy. I haven’t started the kids on keyboarding yet but here are a couple of sites I found…http://www.typingweb.com or Typing Instructor (CD Version).
      I prefer to start off the year with the core basics and if time permits then I add to our curriculum. The last thing I want is a plate of over following to do’s which equal a stressful teacher/mom and burnt out little ones.
      Welcome to homeschooling…have fun and enjoy the journey! 🙂
