The three-year-old curriculum
is divided into three daily activity segments. The curriculum offers
lesson plans from September through May with a breaks
at Christmas and Easter.
only subject that is covered every day is the Bible Study. Each day you
read the week's story and recite the month’s Bible verse. The Bible study
starts on Monday with simply reading a story. Tuesday you read the story
again and do a story related craft. Wednesday you read the story and
there's a practical application (the application segment is a guide for
you to use as a conversation with your child to help them better
understand the story’s concept). Thursday you read the story using the
craft you made on Tuesday. Friday you read the story and recite the Bible
verse for a sticker on the Verse Chart (included as one of the patterns
in the book).
through Friday you also cover two of the following topics: reading skills,
music, readiness skills (preparation for pre-k and/or kindergarten),
social studies, cooking, science/health, and special activities. While
involved in these topics your child will experience a variety of hands on
crafts, physical skills, and communication.
binder that Hands on Homeschooling comes in also has a Prep and Planning
section which gives you guidelines for planning ahead and being prepared
for the lessons. It has an overall supply list and a list of things to
save and recycle. In the rear of the binder there is an Alternate
Activities section which lists additional activities to choose from
should you not want to do a specific activity as listed in the lesson
plan. There are also several ideas listed for making gifts with your
children that should come in handy for the holidays and special
occasions. You will also find a list of helpful websites where you can
find a lot of additional activities and recipes.
