I understand about using whole books to teach history and science, but I’m not so sure about the language arts…

Our Teacher’s Manual, included in the Primary Unit Program will teach you how to teach language arts. It includes how to teach narration and simple dictation. Also included are phonics checklists and instructions, spelling and handwriting instructions, a Dolch Sight Word List by grade level and complete instructions how to choose copy work and use it to teach language arts using the same books you are using for history and science.

Do you already have a phonics program you like?  No problem.  You can use the Primary Unit Program with a phonics or language arts program you already have on your shelf.

What’s included in the Primary Unit Program?


Our Primary Unit Program includes nine historical units and one resource unit covering from Creation through Modern times. It also includes a 100+ page  Teacher’s Manual covering Kindergarten through Fifth Grades,  a folder of downloadable digital forms, graphic organizers and other resources, and a digital file with nine printable cut-apart history bookmarks corresponding to our nine units.

Note: this is a digital product and you’ll be sent a download link as soon as we receive your payment.

    We have been using this for First grade and we love it, no boring textbooks, and my daughter loves learning and reading all the wonderful books! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to do the Charlotte Mason Method.

    I love this curriculum. I have followed the CM method of teaching for my 19 years of homeschooling. I like this curriculum because it has a more updated booklist. We haven’t read a book yet that my boys haven’t liked. I also like the age suggestions on all the books. This helps me figure out which books will be read alouds and which will be read on their own. If you need something that is a guideline for homeschooling that uses CM and Unit Study method than this is the curriculum for you.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5


    After searching through many curriculum choices to find a thorough but easy to use curriculum that integrated History and Language Arts work plus taught History in chronological order, I found the Train Up A Child curriculum. It was the perfect find, and I highly recommend it, especially if you are teaching multiple children at different levels. My children have now all graduated, and I am strongly recommending this curriculum to my daughter who will begin homeschooling her son in just a few short years.

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.
