Pre K-2nd Grade

Science in homeschool
Learning Together!

We will follow the MP homeschool guidelines in catalog.  Parents can opt to choose classes that fit best for them (such as grade level higher or lower where appropriate). Our fervent desire is to serve and bless the families at co-op. We plan to have the day be a blessing by knocking out a lot of your core academics for Memoria Press Day 1 in the core curriculum guides.

*I know this timing sounds early in the morning for some but it has proven to work out very well for everyone. The advantages of going to bed early and waking up early and getting done early are so wonderful. Breakfast can be something simple eaten in the car on the way. If clothes and lunches are prepped the night before you can very nearly just wake up and leave. Starting later, like at 9, has many downsides (running into rush hour being a consideration!) but namely we can only do 3 hours before lunch at noon, and then to finish we’d need an extra hour from 1-2pm. Afternoon coursework can be such a drudgery, especially for little children. Requiring them to compose themselves and muster up the ability to sit still during the afternoon nap hour, especially for this age group, is a difficult task to ask of them. I highly recommend doing a half school day –very easy to do with this age. Use the afternoon to play, explore, (or take a nap if needed!) To learn more about that read my blog post on dealing with “difficult” children, particularly point #2 about “bored children”
