All-in-One

by Grade Level

Simply pick your grade level. Most of these sets come with at least the core subjects and many have elective options also.

Core Subjects

English Language Arts

We teach our children decoding such as phonics, comprehension, handwriting, grammar, spelling, poetry, speech, literature and composition.

In high school literature and composition should both be included in English each year.

 

Mathematics

We teach our children math concepts such as colors, shapes, time, position, number recognition, counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, percents, algebraic concepts, geometry, and other higher math.

 

Science

We discover, observe, describe and experiment with the world around us. Biology, Chemistry, and Physics are all branches of science.

We also study apologia and compare the evilutionist world view  to the Creationist world view. Many science curriculum are also apologetic. If a curriculum is apologetic without the scientific application it is considered an elective and not a science course.

 

Social Studies

We study history, geography, people, culture, society, and government. We also include civics, constitution, politics, and economics although these credits are separate in high school or  included with government and not counted as Social Studies credits.

Electives

 

Bible

Learning Scripture may be an integrated part of your curriculum, taught through out your day or on the Sabbath, or treated as a separate class. The choice is yours We have included curriculum and resources for you to choice from here. We encouraging you to search and discuss as a family what you learn regardless of what you believe now. The beauty of homeschooling is passing on or discovering your beliefs with your children.

 

The Arts

This is a wide subject that can include application of drawing, painting, sculpting, music instrument, voice, theater, crafting or any other creative outlet or medium. This also includes the study of or appreciation of the work of great artist and composers.

Foreign Language

Whether we dabble in a variety of languages or master the writing and tongue of one, learning a foreign language is good for the mind and useful in life. We can teach our young children basic vocabulary through stories and songs or aim to fluently learn a specific language with a curriculum in high school.

 

Other Electives

Electronics, Computer coding, Typing, and other fun skills.

Other Resources

We use other school supplies and planning materials to teach our children. You can find plenty of those resources here.
