Homeschool Memoirs - Agendas

So this is my tentative homeschool plan for Gracie. I only planned for 4 days to start off slow. Since it's her Kindergarten year and she is only 5...I want her to still hae plenty of time to be a kid. The schedule looks like this (as you can see it's not very detailed):

Monday: Handwriting, Reading, Numbers/Math, Social Studies
Tuesday: Handwriting, Reading, Numbers/Math, Science
Wednesday: Handwriting, Reading, Numbers/Math, Bible
Thursday: Handwriting, Reading, Numbers/Math, Art/Music

With it being my first year homeschooling and not having lots of money to spend I am just hoping it's enough. This is very important to me. I really wanted to do the Sonlight Core K. But it was way too expensive and with a new baby it was impossible. :( Anyways, I have lots of workbooks and each day includes a lesson from KidSparkz preschool curriculum. I also plan to do reading from the Sonlight book list. The only thing I'm not really sure of is Science and Social Studies...I'm not sure what to use or if I should just use reading and the world around me to teach. Any suggestions are more than welcome!! I'm using Cozi Central to try to keep myself organized. LOL I'm thinking that's kinda impossible. :)

Proverbs 22:6 - Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
