    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.

     The Student Textbook is available in a Christian Worldview version and a Secular version. Worth mentioning, content is marginally different (scripture references in the Christian Worldview version). Co-ops or classroom students could use the books concurrently with success.  Lessons are expected to take one week to complete, with readings from 10-25 pages, so some lessons may need additional time to complete. Textbook readings are accompanied by lab activities. Labs are designed to be homeschool friendly and use household or easily found items. A sampling of lab experiences includes: osmosis with eggs and vegetables, creating a cell model, determining pH, and making butter and yogurt. You will need internet access for the Taxonomy activity. The Textbook includes space for documenting the lab activities although students may wish to make a science notebook. The author is in the process of developing video dissection labs; contact us for availability. No microscope is required for this course.

    If human rights come from the government then no right is ever truly secure, for whatever rights government officials determine to give citizens, they can just as easily take away! The premise of this book is that there are practical and secular reasons why Americans should be reluctant to abandon the original vision of the founding fathers to attribute the rights of man to the authoritative will of the Creator God. Featuring numerous quotations from past leading U.S. politicians, this book clearly shows leaders who recognize the value of maintaining a freedom under the higher law of Almighty God. The text has larger print and several black and white photos of famous American statesmen. 144 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Religion has always played a significant role in the politics of the US. Though this country was founded on Christian principles, we have seen the Christian religion go from the filter through which politics was conducted to a sidelined institution many government employees are afraid to reference because of the modern interpretation of "separation of church and state." This documentary traces the history of republics and democracies as they rise and fall – with a focus on the roots of our own republic. Viewers will learn more about the real intentions of the Founding Fathers and the path our nation needs to take to preserve itself as a great nation. A thorough examination of the influence of secularism on our foundational principles. 110 minutes.

    "We are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming: but speaking the truth in love." (Eph. 4:14). This powerful study from the Word of God guides the reader in developing an appropriate and accurate world view, and equips him to answer such vital questions as:

    Is there a God? If so, what is He like?

    What is the nature of the universe and its

    origin?

    What is the essential nature of man?

    What is the basis of ethics and morality?

    What is the cause of evil and suffering?

    What happens to man at death?

    What is the meaning of history?

    Author David Quine (Let Us Highly Resolve) challenges Christians to thoroughly examine the Scriptures for the answers to these questions, and to use the Biblical world view as the standard for making personal decisions and evaluating the thoughts and ideas of others. ~ Rachel
