Our unstructured Intermediate Unit Program takes your student from Third through Fifth Grades in history, language arts, science and fine arts.
Using our pre-read and carefully selected book suggestions, activities ideas and resources lists, you can give your student(s) a Charlotte Mason-type education that will be engaging and effective!
- Your Intermediate students will see history in greater detail as we suggest books for more advanced readers than in the Primary Unit Program.
- Your student will read stronger, more specific content in the science books listed.
- Your homeschooled student will gently move toward more structured writing assignments, progressing from third through fifth grades.
- You’ll be able to choose books that fit your child’s learning styles as you’ll know in advance which recommended books include maps, timelines, outstanding illustrations and more. (This also helps you select more varied materials.)
- Your student will have a larger variety of more challenging hands on project and activity choices than in the Primary Unit Program.
See sample unit here. (Note that although the sample unit is shown in color, it is actually printed in black and white.)
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 instructs you how to do narration, dictation and choose copy work to teach grammar and punctuation, using the same books you are using for history and science. It also 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. You can use the Intermediate Unit Program for language arts OR use it with another program you have on your shelf.

Thank you, Dana,The Intermediate Unit Program arrived yesterday and I stayed up late last night pouring over it. I absolutely love it! I’m a mom of 12, with 2 graduated, and this is just what I was looking for. You have put something wonderful together and now I’ve got my second wind, or 12th, and I’m really looking forward to this school year.Thank you so much,Heather
