I understand how I’d teach history and science with books. But what about Language Arts?

Our Teacher’s Manual included in the Intermediate Unit Program will teach you how to teach language arts.  It’s easy! We teach you how to teach narration, dictation, as well as how to choose and display copy work. And you’ll learn to teach grammar and punctuation using the same books you are using for history and science.

Additionally, our Teacher’s Manual includes spelling checklists, a Dolch Sight Word List by grade level and lots of graphic organizers, tools and ideas to help you teach and evaluate writing, spelling and vocabulary.

Already have a language arts program you like?  No problem.  Use the Intermediate Unit Program for language arts OR use it with another program you already have on your shelf.

What’s included in the Intermediate Unit Program?

Our Intermediate Unit Program includes nine historical units and one resource unit, beginning at Creation and ending with Modern times. Along with the nine units, our Intermediate Unit Program includes a separate 100+ page, spiral bound Teacher’s Manual covering Kindergarten through Fifth Grades.  You’ll also receive a download of customizable forms, graphic organizers and other resources and a digital file of nine cut-apart history bookmarks corresponding to our nine units.

Note: This is a digital product. You’ll receive the download link as soon as your payment is received.

    Train up a Child curriculum was the perfect find for our family. Not only did it teach History in chronological order, which was a top priority in our homeschool, but it also moved from one level to the next adding depth at each new level while reinforcing all that had been covered in the years prior. I highly recommend Train up a Child to anyone who wants to teach multiple subjects in an integrated manner and who wants a curriculum that can grow with your children from year to year.

Tired of the tears (theirs and yours)?


You don’t have to tie them to their chairs to get their school work done.

Instead, make homeschooling an adventure by reading about swashbuckling heroes, damsels in distress, touch-and-go battles and and dangerous escapes.

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. (A traditional textbook just isn’t going to do this for your kids.)

Like doing things your way?

Put together your own curriculum (history, language arts, science and fine arts) using our chronological history unit study framework with hundreds of pre-read, best-of-the-best book suggestions and assignment ideas (Unit Program Tools).    


Take a deep breath and stop worrying about not covering enough with our open and go Daily Lesson Plans covering history, language arts, science (K-8th) and fine arts.

All done for you and ready to go.


Teaching High Schoolers? Study history and literature by making a model, illustrating a scene from a book, or planning and putting on a Renaissance feast!

(We write essays, too, but not all the time).

Customizable to fit YOUR kids.
