It's a very useful breakdown for covering topics for each year, getting in all the science, social studies, history, and English kids study in school. It's grouped with like things, so that you're not doing a lot of extra work (so history and social studies are working together in the same time line), science is grouped as closely as it can be to history and S.S. (this year it's geography and earth science). It is aimed at members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but it's not "preachy" and members of other faiths can use it with their own beliefs. What makes it aimed at the Church is the grouping of scriptures (which are optional) has not only Old and New Testament, but the Book of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants as well). And use of a book called Gospel Doctrine that teaches basic Church doctrine of salvation for our Family Home Evening program. You don't need to use the religious books mentioned above. It also has a breakdown of Boy Scout badges that went with each section studies. Again, you don't have to use or be in Boy Scouts to use the material, it's optional. The core of these books are the breaking down of core classes into usable units that work together, so you can teach all grades at the same time, just with deeper assignments for older kids, less in-depth for younger students (you assign the depth you want your student to use).
Reading and math are more individual assignments that you need to do by individual student. A bit of phonics and basic "how to teach reading" are included in year One - I believe. But you'll want a separate program for both reading and math. That's pretty much how most curriculum that covers multiple years works. You have to buy separate programs from other vendors for math and reading. Language arts are covered in this program, but not as in depth with grammar as a stand-alone grammar is. And not as in depth as the science, history and s.s. are.
