What subjects are covered?
Our units integrate science, social studies, writing, reading, health, physical education, art, and math. It should be noted that learning for some subjects, such as Math, Reading, Writing are sequential and are more skills-based. While we include reading, writing and math activities in many of our units, we encourage parents to purchase separate Math, Reading, and Writing curriculums. If you need help in selecting additional curriculums that fit your family's learning goals, consider scheduling a consultation.
How long are units designed to last?
Each unit of study is designed to be taught in six weeks. There are many ways to use this unit. You can complete a lesson each week; you can extend the lessons throughout a span of several months, or you can pick and choose from the lessons and activities in the guide. The possibilities are endless.
What does the unit include?
Each unit provides six weeks worth of lesson plans. A list of materials and directions are provided for each activity, from read alouds and Qur'anic reflections to hands-on experiments. We also provide a Book List and a few how-to guides.
How long will the lessons take?
It depends on the age of your children. Lessons are designed so that you can complete them within an hour and a half on any given day. However, additional readings and activities can be done to extend the lessons.
Each unit is unique in topic and the subjects explored vary by unit but used in totality, our units offer a well-rounded education that meets Common Core national standards.
I am unsure if this curriculum is for my family, what do I do?
Give it a try! Download a sample and try teaching a week's worth of lessons. Consider scheduling a consultation with our curriculum developers. Administrators of co-ops, microschools, and group schoolings may consider scheduling a consultation to see if the units are a right fit for the families.
Can I pick and choose from the units or do I have to go in order?
The choice is yours! Different concepts are covered in each of the units. One unit may focus more on science while another may focus more on social studies.
Where do I get the children's literature listed in the lessons?
Our units incorporate multiple read-alouds. We recommend browsing your local library for literature related to the topic. A book list is included in the unit guide with the name of the literature, however, if certain books are hard to come by, you are welcome to replace the recommended book with something similar. Many of the read-alouds can be found on YouTube. You can view them in order to find an appropriate replacement.
