You can stop worrying whether you are covering enough with our open and go First Grade Daily Lesson Plans.
With our open and go first grade daily lesson plans you’ll integrate the study of history, science, language arts, and fine arts together, organized within the framework of nine historical units covering from Creation to Modern.
Do you want to simplify your homeschooling, saving time and money? Stop buying a separate curriculum for each subject! Instead, by ONE curriculum that covers history, language arts (reading, poetry, pre-writing skills, basic grammar, punctuation, spelling, and vocabulary), hands-on science, memory work, fine arts, and projects.
Our structured 1st grade lesson plans offer you an easy to follow, detailed, daily plan. Even better, instead of using dull textbooks, you’ll teach with excellent children’s literature. (Available from your public or church library, inter-library loan, or online at (affiliate link) Amazon.com.
Our book selections will keep your student’s attention. Our teaching methods will help your students learn.

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.
