Although not every homeschooler chooses to use the government outline for a curriculum, many like to know their child is following along in a similar learning pattern to their publicly schooled peers. Or maybe they are curious at what their child should know at the grade level they are at.
Either way, I’ve been chipping away at creating easy to use elementary grade curriculum checklists for Ontario that are sorted by grade. Currently, when you look at the curriculum online or in the printed books – the information is sorted by subject, requiring several different books and references to pull together everything for a single grade.
The resources I’ve put together include all current editions of each subject: math, science and technology, language arts, social studies, the arts, health and physical education, and core French (where applicable). I’ve tried to make it simple for you to look over, understand, and check off what your child has learned or is working on.
Right now, I’ve only completed Ontario, but hope in the future to add the rest of the provinces and territories across the country as I know there are differences between each and unique expectations.
Each of these are free to download, use, and share – since the government shares the curriculum freely and all I’ve done is compile it together. They are saved in a .PDF format which should be easy to use and print as needed.
To download, simply click on the image for the grade level you are wanting and you will be taken to the PDF file. Simply save it from there.
**Please note: these files have been updated in February 2015 to add in the new changes to the Health and Physical Education Curriculum.** Also, I’ve added Kindergarten’s checklist as many people have requested it. This edition uses the 2006 curriculum and not the draft edition of the full-day program.
If you have found any of these useful, I’d love to hear about it!
If you are from British Columbia, it appears that they’ve done a similar edition of this with their own curriculum for grades K- 9.
