Top Curriculum

First Year of Kindergarten Curriculum 

The first year of homeschool “kindergarten” is an exciting one. Young children are so eager to learn, and it’s your first opportunity to build a multi – subject foundation for your child, covering the topics of reading, writing, math, science, and art.

Homeschool Complete’s Kindergarten Curriculum includes all these subjects, and more (social studies, fitness, character development and the Bible are also covered).

All the workbook pages are organized into one, sturdy, three-ring binder, and the pages are easy to remove. The pages are also durable to withstand daily use. I like everything about the notebook.

I also like my daughter’s response to the curriculum and its presentation. My daughter’s face lit up when we started this curriculum – and she loves her panda notebook – she really thinks she has the best lessons in the house.

 

Digital Textbooks for Kindergarten to 5th Grade 

This homeschool curriculum benefits families with multiple children of different ages, families on a budget, and families that want to go totally digital.

The Complete Curriculum K to 5 set includes everything you need to homeschool children from kindergarten through 5th grade. The package includes 48 digital textbooks that you can download as PDF files. You can also upload the textbook PDFs to an annotation app and do all your work on your tablet or computer. Printing out specific worksheets is also an option.

I definitely like the flexibility of this curriculum, and as stated, it’s great when you have multiple children. Plus, I really appreciate when I find a curriculum that our family likes, and I can use it from year to year. Continuity is always a plus. And, you get A LOT for you money! All this for under $71.

 

Christian Curriculum for Kindergarten to 12th Grade 

LIFEPAC is a Christian homeschool curriculum for grades K-12, created by Alpha Omega Publishing.

LIFEPAC requires mastery learning – which means students have to master content before progressing. Ten LIFEPAC worktexts provide one full year of learning content per grade level; and you can use individual work texts as supplemental material, if desired.

I like the flexibility of the curriculum. You can can mix and match subjects or grade level worktexts to personalize your student’s homeschool curriculum content.

 

Elementary Super Science Curriculum 

The Human Body Detectives science curriculum is for kids ages 9 to 12.

This science bundle includes the The Human Body Detectives stories and activities. The lesson plans cover the topics of digestion, the immune system, the circulatory system, the skeletal system, the nervous system, the brain, and nutrition.  The curriculum includes a review assessment to assure retention of the concepts.

I like that the lessons are story-based and that they are entertaining, engaging, and educational. I also like that the curriculum is easy to use (saves in overall planning hours).

 

 

Minecraft Modding with Java: Learn Coding with Minecraft 

CodaKid’s Modding with Minecraft Fundamentals is an online Java programming course designed for ages 7 to 15.

In this self-paced course, students learn how to modify or “mod” the source code of Minecraft while mastering coding concepts such as Conditionals, Methods, Loops, Variables, Arrays, and more.

I like that it incorporates my child’s interests into the curriculum – as this keeps him engaged and excited about learning. Plus, what an important skill to have!

  

 

 

Home Enrichment Kit: Teach Art Appreciation 

This program uses your child’s reading, writing, and problem-solving skills to learn and create art.

The Artists of the World – Home Enrichment Kit introduces 6 of the world’s most famous artists (Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Monet, Michelangelo, Picasso and Warhol) through activities, multimedia interaction, games and puzzles. Your child learns how to appreciate art, recognize the work of top artists, and recreate his/her own masterpieces.

I like that this curriculum is fun and engaging, and that all the materials are included. My child now knows a Monet from a Van Gogh – pretty impressive! I appreciate the price – it’s just $29 at Educents.

 

Times Tales: Learn the multiplication tables in an hour 

Times Tales uses videos and games to help kids memorize their upper times tables. (I do need to point out that the purpose of Times Tales is to teach memorization of the times tables – children still need to understand the concept of multiplication).

I do recommend this product if your kids aren’t quite “getting it” when it comes to multiplication, It has certainly worked for my kids. And you can’t beat the price – it’s under $20!

 

 

Spanish Language Program

Many homeschoolers want to add a foreign language to their homeschool curriculum, but don’t speak the language. If you’re looking for a self-guided way to teach your child a foreign language, you can add this 3-DVD set to your studies. You don’t have to speak Spanish.

Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids teaches children Spanish via fun DVDs.  The DVDs are easy for kids to follow and relate to. The accompanying workbook pages and games reinforce new vocabulary.

I like the high quality of the videos. My daughter finds them entertaining, and she watches them over and over again. Best of all, she is retaining what she learns
