Kindergarten Teacher's Manual

A year-long hands-on learning adventure for young children. This complete kindergarten curriculum contains all necessary subjects and is ideal for homeschool or classroom. The first two weeks focus on the Creation story from Genesis, followed by 26 hands-on, easy-to-teach thematic units (one letter each week) that focus on the wonders in God's creation. The sun, moon, rocks, vegetables, elephants, butterflies, and dinosaurs are just a few of the exciting topics you will explore.

Second Edition (2017) includes a Christmas unit for December with Bible stories and hands-on activities. Children also enjoy a new Fruit of the Spirit unit at the end of the year, focusing on character (love, joy, peace, etc.) as well as cooking, science, and more. Both of these units have new, colorful Student Sheets.

Reading

This highly successful multi-sensory phonics approach makes teaching reading easy. Hands-on and workbook activities are combined to teach letter names, 26 letter sounds (consonants and short vowels), sound blending, and correct handwriting. Students learn to read and write short vowel words.

By mid-year, students are reading simple stories.

By mid-year they are reading very simple stories. The reading lessons may be used successfully with 5-year-old and mature 4-year-old children, or with older children who are just beginning to learn letter sounds.

As part of our "learning to love to read" focus, for each unit children enjoy a children's literature book related to the theme plus related activities.

Math

Our informal, integrated approach helps children easily learn foundational math concepts. In addition to the daily hands-on math routines and worksheets for each unit, many skills are woven into the lessons as students cut an apple in half, measure and compare the lengths of dinosaurs and whales, and order leaves by size. All typical kindergarten goals are taught, including counting objects, writing numerals, preparing and understanding charts and graphs, comparing, classifying, sequencing and understanding ordinal numbers, fractions (whole/half), clocks, money, and an introduction to addition and subtraction.

Bible, Science, Creative Thinking, Children's Literature, and Art

These subjects are integrated into the 26 easy-to-teach thematic units. Each week focuses on one alphabet letter and one corresponding science topic. For example, "S-s-sun":

  • Students learn letter "s" and number 1
  • Study about the sun, construct and use a sundial, observe and chart grapes as they become raisins, paint a sun, and listen to a funny book about shadows
  • Learn that, like the sun, Jesus is the Light of the World

Character Development

This special focus is integrated into each unit.

  • The turtle lesson teaches, "I don't quit -- I persevere!"
  • The horse lesson teaches, "I obey right away."
  • The zebra lesson teaches, "I can't hide anything from God."

Daily Lessons

Clearly written step-by-step, 90-minute daily lessons in a grid lesson plan chart for each week are of great help to new homeschool teachers. Daily work is presented in four parts:

  • Reading/Language Arts and Math – includes 100 Chart and monthly calendar, poems, phonics-based reading lessons, handwriting
  • Activities – Bible/character development lesson and the day's special hands-on activity focusing on science, math, art, children's literature, and creative thinking (Children ages 3-8 may learn together using these activities.)
  • Read Aloud
  • Outside Time

Testimonials

I have never seen a curriculum that inspired me or led me to believe that Kindergarten was needed or necessary in my home. Until now... (read more)

The Old Schoolhouse Magazine

We are DELIGHTED with the Kindergarten curriculum. Your lessons are so wonderfully laid out for successful homeschooling. My daughter used to say, "I don't want to do school." Now she sits right down, expecting to have fun! And my toddler can easily participate in the science projects. We're enjoying My Father's World immensely.

J.O., Oregon

This is my first year homeschooling and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to do it. My Father's World has been a blessing . . . I am constantly amazed at the organization and completeness of the curriculum. We are thrilled with it all . . . The art and science projects are very well laid out, simple enough for my kids to understand and yet so full of fun and wonder that the kids have learned a LOT about God's creation.

Michele

Just wanted to let you know how much my son has enjoyed your program. We started it when he was 4, he has since turned five, and he is on lesson 25. He can't wait to do his work each day and he is reading the short stories each week with ease. We tell everyone that has young children about MFW.
Thank you so much for making such a wonderful program.

Charla Barnett, North Carolina

God's Creation from A to Z can be very helpful, not only to inexperienced homeschool parents, but also to veterans who have children at higher levels as well as little ones.
A solid program like My Father's World can ease the burden of a parent-teacher pulled in several directions and ensure that the kindergarten child in a larger family will not "fall in the cracks" or have any serious gaps in their learning.
