Family Learning Cycle: 2nd - 8th Grade
Each curriculum is designed to teach children of different grade levels - all at the same time.
- Your Teacher's Manual explains what level of content should be taught to each child
- A 7th grader, for example, completes assignments more thoroughly than a 3rd grader while using many of the same resources.
- The Family Learning Cycle keeps the family together when possible and assures that the parent is only teaching one complete curriculum package each year.
Everyone starts with Exploring Countries and Cultures curriculum.
Benefits of the Family Learning Cycle
Compact Schedule:Families who start school at 8 a.m. can finish with the books by lunchtime, allowing the rest of the day for outdoor play, sports, music lessons, and self-directed study. (Your 7th-8th graders spend an extra hour or two on advanced math and science.) Since lessons are short, many problems related to attention span can be avoided altogether.
Kids Learn from Each Other:Part of the way children internalize knowledge is by passing it along to their siblings. For youngsters, knowledge communicated from an older sibling often adds significantly to a lesson from a parent.
Thorough Bible Integration:Our unique curriculum structure allows us to juxtapose Biblical and world history in ways other programs can't. Learning about God doesn't just happen in its own class—it's everywhere.
Unite Your Family:Rather than having each child off doing their own thing, the Family Learning Cycle puts everyone around the same table. School becomes a powerful bonding experience as your children spend their days learning together.
