1 Year Old’s Curriculum

I thought I would start off by sharing my one year old’s curriculum. I have never thought about “home schooling” my one year old before. However, she has been really interested in our 3 year old’s lessons. I found a weekly curriculum online that I am going to try. It was completely free, and I figure I can at least see how she enjoys it. You can check out the curriculum that I found for toddlers here. It actually starts for kids as early as age 3 months. These activities will take very little time because I think it is really important that kids play at this age. She will also be around while I am homeschooling my 3 year old, and I am sure that she will pick up some things from that.

How I Will Be Implementing This Curriculum:

Literature:

Basically, you read them a book for literature. I figure that I will just read this book every day for a week during our reading time.

Bible:

There is also a weekly Bible verse. I am planning on just saying that verse to her when I am changing her diaper, at night before she goes to bed, and in the morning after prayer time. I also think that this will help me with my scripture memory.

Nursery Rhyme & Poetry:

I will just read this to her during reading time as well. Plus, if I know it from memory, I can just say it to her while we are playing.

Speech & Vocabulary:

I already do this, but basically I will just tell her what I am doing while she is getting dressed, point to her nose, and say nose, etc.  When we are rolling a ball back and forth, say out loud what we are doing. When I hand her a toy, I tell her the name of the toy.

Indoor Games:

The site has really easy indoor games that I will be doing. I also have a book for activities for preschoolers that I will be using. This will fit into our educational games time slot in our schedule.

Classical Music:

The site has suggestions for classical music. However, my 11 year old has classical music that she listens to each term, and we will probably just use that music since she plays it already in the room.

Children’s Songs:

I sing with my kids every night before bed, and will just include the suggested song as well as the other songs that we sing.

Foreign Language:

This one I am still debating about. I really just think that it is important that kids hear other languages at this age. My eldest daughter will be playing her Spanish CD’s, and I really think that hearing those will be sufficient.

Arts & Crafts:

She will be doing these at the same time as our 3 year old. It should be pretty easy to incorporate her into the same activity, or do a different more age appropriate activitiy.

Art Appreciation:

Every couple of week’s we will look at art online or in books together.

She also has puppets, blocks, and other manipulatives to play with.

    I Find that amazing! Most of those are things my Daughter has been doing at “play-school” for about a year. She will be 4 next month and the “teacher” has actually moved her up in learning age. The place I send her to is run by a pastors wife and her daughter who have background in education. They only have 9 kids there everyday ranging from 11 month to school age. They do not do spanish but in place do sign lang. It is amazing! I would love a link to the site you mention. I am expecting my second in May and want to get a head start on his learning like I wish I had for my daughter. Thank you for this post!
