    Default new to homeschooling. Needing help plan a curriculum...

    Hi!! My daughter is 5. We are in the Arlington School district. We will be repeating Kindergarten and hopefully starting grade 1 as well. I am looking to find out what needs to be taught by law in these grades? I have read the NYS rules page and also asked the school district, but have felt all answers have been very broad. Any help would be great!! TIA
