Kindergarten Plans for Krash

I have gotten a few emails recently asking about our Kindergarten plans, and it is about time I share our plans with you!  We are not fall grade starters, but move up when they are ready.  Krash is ready and we actually just began Calvert Kindergarten, while also finishing up his last few RRSP lessons.

Why both?  Well, we get Calvert through our state Cyber School for free {info here in this FAQ post, and here} and I used it with Pac Man and know what to expect.  I supplement a lot of my own stuff, but use Calvert as the base.  Pac Man began Calvert K right around this time {when he was almost 5-their birthdays are both in spring} and has done really well.  I want to finish our RRSP units, even though Krash has “grown out of” much of it.  I still want to do the Bible applications and finish it to completion! 

Transition Plans…

I plan to do simple posts for the last few RRSP letters, basically so new users can see each letter in action with a blog post.  Krash is no longer doing any additional preschool letter work based around the unit as he was.  His supplemental work is now coming from his K program and also a new sight word program I developed for him {MANY details coming in a couple of weeks}.

I plan to start sharing “Kindergarten with Krash” posts every couple of weeks to keep you posted on what he is doing. 

While we are in the transition phase of completing RRSP and beginning Kindergarten-I will try to do both blog posts.  We have 6 RRSP units left to complete and I may actually do 2 per week, because he has really advanced beyond the program for the most part.  We are only doing a few components currently.

If we wouldn’t have skipped so many weeks of RRSP {vacations, other focus themes, and some laziness on my part} we would be finished with RRSP by now and the timing would be perfect, but for a few weeks we will overlap and he won’t even know the difference-it’s all just school to him!
