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 as 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.
-MATHEMATICS 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 set of full-color workbooks for learning Math entitled: Focus on Math. This course provides your student with 5 workbooks AND! This is so important beginning at this level - an Answer Key is provided.
-There's also a course entitled: Math Concepts and Problem Solving. That should assist with learning math concepts and solving math problems... right? Right. Also, the ever necessary... Answer Key is included

-SPELLING - WRITING- that phrase, no doubt, evokes a memory of your younger days as a grade school student.

This is a very well-accepted workbook series... by Evan Moor Publishing. The answers are in the back of this workbook for parents.

There's an Answer Key too!
-WRITING... a cursive writing practice workbook is provided for your child. You'll want to add additional time during your homeschool sessions to work on this topic. Although public schools are not normally teaching cursive anymore - with the advent of technology. This soon to be lost art, we believe, should be taught and is therefore, included.
-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 ?"
