The great thing about these little (28-30 pages) guides is that they truly give you all you need to start successfully homeschooling your K-3rd Grader in 3 core areas: reading, Language (Grammar) and Math. They are jammed packed with details and wonderful "how-tos", not rhetoric. I imagine that you can design a whole year's curriculum with just this packet, and a collection of very good books. Do yourself a favor, ditch the urge to buy those expensive curriculums with bells and whistles. Buy this first. I just wish I found this series BEFORE I spent hundreds of dollars on buying and selling things I didn't want or need. When you have finished this, I suggest you read Beechick's You Can Teach Your Child Successfully for more wisdom on schooling 4th-8th Grade.
Enjoy.

Short, simple, easy to use, user-friendly, to the point. Everything I've ever wanted in early elementary education for my children. The perfect introduction to reading, writing and math. Uses simple techniques and inexpensive objects found around the house. Not a full curriculum for ALL school subjects by any means, but an excellent method for getting your children off to a great start in the 3R's. And the price is definitely right on the money! :-)

Format: Paperback
...get these books! It is a very small investment, but a wealth of information. The approach is totally different from most curriculums and "workbooks."
I had a hard time in school. While I am bright, I am also dyslexic. Therefore, I had to find ways where I could learn, not in the (what has become) traditional way. This "traditional way" of mass education has only been around for a couple hundred years. Before that, people were taught from life and life examples; the "hands on" approach.
This small set of books is brining us back to the concept that all people do not learn the same way! This is not new, but it is totally politically incorrect.
We have been using the traditional workbooks with my son and he just has not gotten it. Inn addition, there has been a real lack of interest. Why? Most of them are boring! After reading these books and putting into practice the principles outlined in them, he started to be able to sound out simple words in a week! A coincidence? I think not.
Do not be stuck in the political agenda of the day or in what is familiar to you. Be willing to branch out for your kids. They will excel when they are taught in the way in which they can learn. You too will be excited when you see them learning more quickly and with enthusiasm.
Give this book a try. If you are truly willing, I do not think you will be disappointed!

If I'd discovered these three little books years ago, I'd have saved hundreds of dollars on bells and whistles curruculum items. These books are enough to teach "The 3R's" for the first few grades of school. Excellent, containing much wisdom.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These are the best little books for starting to homeschool. They cover the basics and they do it well. With just these three books, a few math manipulatives, and a selection of books for reading you too can homeschool. These books cover everything you need for the basics. They provide me the confidence I need and a reminder to keep it simple. I wish I had found these books first before reading any of the other 'how to homeschool' type books or wasting my time trying to find a prepackaged curriculum.
Enjoy.

These books have taught ME how to teach the core requirements for kindergarten and 1st grade. I will continue to use Ruth Beechick materials throughout 8th grade. She makes life much easier for me by being practical and using good, common sense approaches.

These little books are jam-packed with great, usable, easy advice *that really works* to teach your children the Three R's in the first years. I have taught both my eldst two sons how to read using Ruth Beechicks recommendations from The Three R's, not only did they enjoy the process (rare for boys anyway) but they now have a voracious appetite for reading. (They are 9 and 7). Im now starting again with my 5 year old, and have sold all those other reading programs I thought I needed. I could say the same thing in re. to maths and writing. Thank you Dr Beechick!

I am duly impressed with the short, concise way Ms. Beechick has explained the "mystery" of teaching the 3 R's to young children. While educators would have us to believe that it is a secret, Ms. Beechick explains in short pamphlets no less how to do it and do it painlessly. I especially like how in the arithmetic book, she describes what and how to teach a child in the first through third grades. I am sure that now that I have begun teaching my son at home, I will use these little books quite often.
