  1. Kathryn

    We have absolutely loved using your daily lessons plans for first grade this year. The reading list integrated beautifully with our classical conversations program. The books have brought such depth to our homeschool! My seven year old now says her favorite subject is HISTORY! It’s absolutely because of the way the books you recommended brought all the time periods to life. I’m so grateful for your work to create such an amazing curated list along with all the activities/lessons.

    Every two weeks before we started a new unit, it took about 1 hour each time to go in and reserve all of the books at the library. As long as I planned ahead, this worked very well! A few of the books were hard to find at the library, but I was able to supplement with books that were similar in content without having to buy the book on amazon. It was a wonderful experience all around.

    My twin girls just finished 1st grade. I’ve been amazed at how much they have learned. The use of good literature has definitely increased their retention. The curriculum is very easy to follow and change if you need. My mom was a 1st grade teacher for decades and comments often about how impressed she is with what they have learned. I really believe the integration of subjects is a huge factor in this.

    We had a wonderful year using this curriculum. We were given the gift of so many wonderful books to read. I love having all subjects tied together, makes for a smooth transition from one subject to the next.

Tired of the tears (theirs and yours)?

You don’t have to daydream about tying them to their chairs to get their work done.

Instead, make homeschooling an adventure by reading about swashbuckling heroes, damsels in distress, touch-and-go battles and dangerous escapes. Not only are many of the books we recommend exciting, they often teach real-life lessons on overcoming adversity and building character.

Instead of begging them to read another chapter in their ho-hum textbooks, immerse your children in the sights and sounds of history through reading excellent books. Bring history, science and fine arts to life by reading our best-of-the-best book suggestions and choosing among our many activity and lesson ideas.

Are you worried you aren’t covering enough?
