Our second daughter is our sweet girl who was born with down syndrome. Age-wise she would be in 4th grade. However, she is more at a Kindergarten level so the curriculum listed here will not be 4th grade level curriculum. We take our time and work at her pace. So without further ado: my 4th Grade Special Needs Homeschool Curriculum Choices!
Math: Math Lessons for a Living Education and Teaching Math to People With Down Syndrome – We are going to start going through Math Lessons for a Living Education. We will take our time and work through it slowly. I also have a book called “Teaching Math to People with Down Syndrome” that has a lot of great activities and ideas for teaching math. We used this book some last year and will use it again this year.
Reading: All About Reading Pre-Reading and Level 1 plus Bob Books – There are some things in the Pre-Reading level she already knows but there are also some things she does not know that I want her to learn so we are going to start here. This reading curriculum has a zebra puppet you use to help teach the lessons. She loves it! If she flies through Pre-Reading, we will jump ahead to Level 1. I am also going to help her start reading through Bob Books. We’ll go through a page or two at a time.
Handwriting: Handwriting Without Tears and Maze Writer by Crafty Classroom
Extra: F goes to speech and occupational therapy a couple of times every week. They work with her speech and they do a lot of work on her handwriting, amongst so many other things. It is such a blessing to us! F loves her class days!
F will also participate in our Bible, history, and science curriculum I talked about in this post.
