That means that we are including the best publications for the lowest price all packaged together complete with a weekly schedule to assist you.
This package is considered an "Economy Package" because, simply put... it isn't as pricey because we put the more expensive texts into our Standard and Deluxe, more expensive packages.
That only makes sense doesn't it?
(All of our bundles/packages contain SECULAR Materials. Secular = No bible-based content)
ALL THE CORE COURSES ARE HERE! and for some that's all they want.
-MATH is always going to be part of every package. This course doesn't include a hardcover, super fancy, mathematics text. It does, however, include a selection of math programs for use throughout the year. One program consists of a 2 color student workbook for learning, entitled: 'Math Concepts and Problem Solving'. That should assist with learning math concepts and solving math problems... right?
-Also, there's a full color set of softcover student workbooks (3 of 'em) for learning Math. Your child will be moving from the novice level to the intermediate and then onto the advanced level of mathematics concepts at this level. Locking in topic knowledge is easier when study skills are covered 3 times from easy content to more difficult in sequence throughout the year.
-But wait - there's one more.... Another full-color workbook on the topic: 'Alphabet and Counting' - enough math materials to cover all the skills needed at this level according to the N.C.T.M. That's an acronym for a group of math teacher that tell us what should be taught at each grade level - The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. No skimping on educational content! And answer keys are bound in the back of those texts.
-A great student workbook covering content in all the topics of -SCIENCE from critters/animals to plants and life -- it's here for your student as well. You can be assured that it covers all the basics and beyond.
-Additionally we integrated a workbook to assist with his/her studies in SOCIAL STUDIES / HISTORY this year.
A full-color workbook covering Homes and Families takes care of this standards requirement.
-LANGUAGE ARTS consists of a large selection of materials at this level because learning to read, reading fluency & comprehension, phonics, writing and spelling... all of these topics are involved in the Arts of Language.
Therefore, we included an ENGLISH GRAMMAR course in a 2-color workbook format concentrating your child's learning on the elementary skills of language. This workbook covers all forms of grade-level Grammar, Usage and Mechanics.
-PHONICS, a requirement - well, at least we think it should be part of every early learning package - that's why it too is included. Here is a full-color phonics learning program. Young learners love this phonics text! Your child will learn phonemic awareness and usage while utilizing a workbook format - write-in style for mastery!
-HANDWRITING is also included for your youngster. Beginning with an emphasis on handwriting readiness - then - moving to activities for mastering skills: tracing, letter practice, numbers, words, sentences and additional enrichment activities - your child's handwriting is sure to improve!
SPELLING & WRITING- that phrase, no doubt, evokes a memory of your younger days as a grade school student. That's also the title, Spell & Write, of one of the full-color workbooks your student will be utilizing to master the skills of Spelling and Writing at this level. This is a very well-accepted workbook series... by Evan Moor Publishing.
-We're not done... no, no, no. We must have your child work on their Reading skills even further! So, we are packing more content into this package. Another set of READING workbooks is also provided. 3 of 'em - just like their sister math workbooks - from novice to advanced. Just reading? No. Also, all that the things that reading entails... it's all included in this fine, full-color workbook set to sharpen your child's skills.
-Along with the reading mentioned in the paragraph above... there's also one more READING workbook being provided. Get the plan? Yes! We're teaching plenty of reading at the first grade level.
-We now come to the final reading mastery course ... READING COMPREHENSION. We have provided for your child, yet another course to assist with comprehension. By the same publisher as one of our math courses at this level, this workbook does as the title suggests - helps with reading and comprehension of subjects, main ideas, sequence and characters included in the stories.
-AND as mentioned above - we include a Full-Year suggested schedule for the core courses!
Educational? But of course!
We wouldn't have it any other way. And neither would you.
Economy packages contain the bare minimum materials to meet requirements. Parent/teachers should understand that students using an Economy Package need to have additional and supplemental activities added to his/her school day for better understanding and final mastery of the topic(s) presented. Grade 6+ economy packages are typically not suited for a 4 year University-bound student. See the link to the lower left: "Economy? Standard? Deluxe ?"
