The book covers Reading, Language Skills, Spelling, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Additionally, it integrates art, music and movement activities into the lessons.
The book is set up for the way homeschoolers work. For each week, there is a two-page spread/grid with a complete lesson plan for each subject, Monday through Friday. Immediately after the week's lesson plan there are all the material you need for each lesson. The book is in full color which is a must for visual learners like my son.
My only regret is that I didn't find this book at the beginning of the school year, but we're going to use it for the remainder of the year.
I will recommend this book to my homeschool group as an excellent resource for both first-time and seasoned home educators.
As long as you do not expect this book too 100% do all the work for you it is a great base curriculum. I do supplement with other math work books as I find the math in these books to be lacking.
However, If you try to literally do everything in these books you will end up schooling twelve hours per day. Instead use them as a guide and tweak it to your child and families needs. I do not do all subjects daily. The language skills section is often redundant and does not need near as much time spent on it for my children.
Also we do science and social studies as a group. Meaning my 2nd, 4th, 6th and 9th graders are given the same material and work sheets for these subjects. I just pick the subject and sheets from whomever a book fits our needs best that week. The older ones then assist the younger ones and earn extra tutoring credit. They study all week after doing their main math, reading, and spelling work. Then we do group discussions and projects on Fridays after spelling tests. Having a good relationship with your local library allows this curriculum to work out very well.
All in all I enjoy these books. The only thing holding me back from giving it five stars is the math section. If it had more work sheets and more child friendly instructions for math then this would be worthy of five stars.
