Plans for Genevieve, Grade 1 2011

34
This year I am determined for Genevieve to participate more in academics, she turns seven in July!
She understands maths easily, knows most of her letters, loves picture books and can absorb short chapter books.  She should be joining us for at least an hour daily.

Suggestion
Number and literacy activities – daily, 20 to 30 minutes total
Faith – daily, up to 10 minutes
Story time – daily, up to 20 minutes. This to include history, geography, science and nature picture books as well as immersion in great literature.
I am also wanting to include nature study and art and craft activities each week.
