1st Grade Term

After looking at the Parents' Union Programme 44, I came up with this:

BIBLE LESSONS
-one Old Testament story per week
-one New Testament story (Matthew, Mark, or Luke) per week
-maps of the Holy Land

WRITING
-one letter each lesson (master one letter each week)
-write a letter from dictation ("Write the letter C.")

NATURAL HISTORY
-read 40 pages of a nature book
-study 6 kinds of something (trees, flowers, insects, etc.)

GEOGRAPHY
-read 40 pages of a geography book
-mother & father tell stories of 6 places they've travelled
-draw the neighborhood in a sand tray

FORIEGN LANGUAGE
-learned orally with pictures

SUMS/MATH
-use of dominoes and beans to do sums

PICTURE TALK
-study 6 reproductions of the works of one artist

DRAWING
-one sketch per week
(6 of one thing, 6 of another)

TALES
-History stories (40 pages)
-3 Grimm's Fairy Tales (one a month)

RECITATION
-2 poems (1 every 6 weeks)
-3 hymns (not set to music) (I plan to do 1 hymn set to music per month)
-12 Bible verses (6 OT and 6 NT) (one verse per week)

READING
-The Happy Reader or The Delightful Reading Box by Sarah Mason

MUSIC
-piano

SINGING
-1 English song per month
-1 foreign language song (over 3 months)

DRILL (P.E.)
-marching
-calisthenics
-ball drills

WORK
-handicrafts


On Ambleside Online, 44 1a is labeled 2nd and 3rd grade, but looking at the programmes, I think these are mislabeled. The reason I think this is that 1b appears more advanced than 1a (the number of subjects, the expectations in math, the tales, etc.).
