Please keep in mind that different states have different requirements. To find out more about what is required in your state, please visit the HSLDA site.
In SC, for the grade level my children are in, I am required to teach reading, writing, math, social studies and science. I am free to teach these subjects however I choose and do not have to use any set curriculum.
Personally, in addition to these subjects, I also teach the following:
- Phonics/Word Study
- Language Arts
- US Geography (which could be under the Social Studies heading)
- Home Ec (sewing, cooking, etc.)
Next year (when my son is in 7th grade), I will add literature to the list.
Because it takes so much less time to do schoolwork, we can cover a larger number of subjects in any given day. Even with the additional subjects, we are still done by noon most days.
