Note: Once you have completed Block One you can do the rest of the year’s blocks in any order.
These Block Three lessons for first grade include lesson plans for math, language, and/or science for each day of the month (across the entire year the first grader covers all subjects). Each month’s plans are also filled with stories, verses, recipes, pentatonic recorder lessons, handwork lessons, pictures, natural crafts and nature walk ideas. Each day of the month is planned out for you in detail. You will not need to purchase any additional books or lessons to enjoy a full complete month of first grade!
Holiday and seasonal activities for October are included in Block Three. However, they are provided as extras so if you are living in an area of the world where the season is different or you don’t celebrate a certain holiday you will not be left out – you will still have a full month of activities!
