This complete kindergarten curriculum package was designed with the new homeschooler in mind. We wanted it to be easy to jump into and get started, to be strong in academics and we wanted to utilize a variety of homeschooling products.
For math, this package includes Saxon Math K. In the primary grades (K-3), Saxon Math is manipulative-based and scripted (little preparation for the teacher). The lessons encourage teacher-student interaction and you can expect them to take 30-45 min. We include the required manipulatives at each grade level.
For language arts in the Kindergarten package you’ll find the Saxon Phonics program. This program was selected for two primary reasons. First, this program provides a solid foundation in reading skills through systematic, intense phonics and integrated reading, spelling and writing instruction. Second, but equally important, Saxon Phonics is parent friendly and easy to teach.
For science, McRuffy Science K is included. The McRuffy Science courses offer the same user-friendly format providing interesting lessons with an emphasis on hands-on activities.
The history component for grades K to 6 is the myWorld Social Studies series from Pearson Learning. The all-encompassing myWorld course uses the medium of storytelling to personally engage students with the stories of the past. Well-illustrated texts hold a student’s attention and all the teaching materials are also included.
