Our Homeschool Kindergarten Curriculum Choices 2019 – 2020

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure statement for more information.

My youngest is starting kindergarten this year and I’m so excited! Kindergarten is such a wonderful time, and I’m really looking forward spending it with her.

This was one of the easiest years for me, as far as choosing curriculum. I already knew most of what I wanted to use before I started planning. Blossom and Root Kindergarten will make up the bulk of our curriculum for the year. I decided not to use Singapore Math for kindergarten, as I had with my oldest. We will introduce it in first grade instead. We will be using Wild Math Kindergarten, in addition to the math / science that’s built into Blossom and Root Kindergarten. I’ve also added a few wonderful pieces to give our days some gentle rhythm and seasonal connections.

I’ve made a video to share all of our choices for the year ahead. It’s long, so look for the time stamps in the video notes if you’re curious about one particular subject.

Our Kindergarten Curriculum Choices:

In addition to the choices I talk about in the video, she will begin attending the same enrichment program as my oldest, once a week. She will also choose an extracurricular activity (I think she’s got her eye on martial arts this year, but we’ll see when fall comes.) And I will be using all of the amazing things I’ve learned from The Brave Learner by Julie Bogart to guide me in our year together.


What will you be using for the year ahead? I would love to hear, so please feel free to share in the comments!

    I was going to leave a comment on your YouTube… anyway. I wanted to suggest Daisy Rock guitars jr. we got one for my daughter when she was 7. They have slimmer necks for women and the jrs have slightly shorter bodies, but they are an actual guitar not a kiddie one. My husband who plays actually prefers to play on her guitar sometimes.

      Oh, perfect! Thank you so much Shannon! I really appreciate that! And yeah–I am starting to just disable comments on any videos that show pictures or videos of my daughters. I appreciate you taking the time to come over here to comment and I will look into those guitars! 🙂

    I am so glad to see My Father’s Dragon. It is a favorite chapter book from childhood. I even read it again as a teenager. Thank you for the in-depth video, it really helped me to decide to go ahead with your science/nature study curriculums. I actually excited about science and not apprehensive now. All other curriculums I felt did either way too much or just not enough. This feels “juuuust right”.

      You’re welcome–I’m glad it was helpful! 🙂

    Stalking you to see if this curriculum is right for us, and I’m only 6 minutes into your Youtube video above when I find myself smiling, nodding and saying “YES!!!” at the laptop! You’re spot on with letting your child create what she does, without fear of it not being what the prompt asks for! On this alone – you have sold me!
    Thank you! I’m so excited to purchase this curriculum! <3 Jami

    Is there a supply list for the curriculum that will show all books that need to be purchased for the year? Ive been trying to dig and just cant seem to find anything. Thanks in advance!

    I am 100% new to all of this. I am trying to see if this is something I could do. I work 2 days/week and I have twin baby boys. What is a reasonable amount of time to expect to work on this per day? I was also thinking of starting now to get a head start in case I don’t have enough time to do it full time with her. Thank you!

      Hi there! Kindergarten is very light, and very doable even when working full time. On an average, I spent around 30 – 45 minutes per day (total) with my daughters when they did kindergarten. Since you’ve also got two very little ones in the mix, I would recommend starting with one thing, maybe the language arts portion, and then slowing adding the rest in as you develop a good rhythm. That way, you won’t feel overwhelmed. 🙂

    I’m excited about starting Blossom and Root this summer to add some structure to our quarantine life. I also work full time from home right now, but that has been different and will be until there is a vaccine. I’m really excited about your curriculum. I don’t want to do distance learning with my little starting K5 because so much needs to be hands-on with this age. Thank you so much for puling together such a wonderful resource! My daughter loves the outdoors and art and I could not have found a better curriculum for her!

      I’m so happy our resources resonate with you and your family! I hope you have a wonderful time together! 🙂

    Thank you for this! I’m so excited to start kindergarten with B & R! I wasn’t able to find the Whole Family Rhythm guides from your video. Do you have a direct link?

    • Reply Kristina Garner July 22, 2020 at 1:16 am

      I just had someone ask a few days ago, and can’t find them anywhere. I think she’s pulled them to revise them, most likely.

    We are using Blossom and Root for Kindergarten for history, science, art, and nature. We are really enjoying it!

      I’m so happy to hear you’re enjoying it! 🙂
