All the workbook pages are organized into one, sturdy, three-ring binder. Pages are copied on durable paper that withstands daily use and are easily removable for daily use or homeschool on the go.

Imagine your child’s face light up when the box comes and they realize it’s time to learn! One mom describes her child’s excitement: “We got the item today and my kids fell in love with all that came included.

The Complete Curriculum K to 5 set includes everything you need to homeschool children from kindergarten to 5th grade (or, approx. ages 6 to 10). The package includes 48 digital textbooks that you can download as PDF files. If you prefer having a hard copy of worksheets or chapters to read, you can choose the pages you want to print. Or, if you are a tech-savvy homeschool family, upload the textbook PDFs to an annotation app on any device and do all your work on your tablet or computer.

This is a great fit for homeschoolers with multiple kids in the elementary grades. “Great deal! My kids are really loving these texts. I’m able to teach all three of my kids with these texts and know that we’re good for the next couple of years at least.” -Noelette S.

This kit can be used for instruction by parents, guardians and caregivers at home. No need to grab additional materials – this kit comes with everything you need!

“My child can now tell a Monet from a Van Gogh! I can’t believe that this kit, all fun and games, helped him learn about world artists and bring out the inner Picasso in him. Brilliant!” -Barbara G., Homeschooler


Times Tales: Learn the multiplication tables in an hour 

If your kids aren’t quite “getting it” when it comes to the multiplication tables, use this supplemental multiplication resource. Times Tales is a very popular series of videos and games that use stories to help kids memorize their upper times tables.

One homeschool mother of three says Times Tales taught the times tables to her kids in an hour. “I think it’s important to point out that the purpose of Times Tales is to teach memorization. Children still need to understand the concept of multiplication — the fact that 7×4=28 means 7 groups of 4 equals 28 needs to be understood. I actually taught my kiddos this using Lego bricks. They loved it and it worked! It was the perfect combination along with the Times Tales video. This is one product worth buying!.” -Celena, The Traveling Sisterhood


Spanish Language Program

Many homeschoolers want to add a foreign language to their homeschool curriculum, but don’t speak the language and may feel intimidated teaching it. If you’re looking for a self-guided way to teach your child a foreign language, add this 3-DVD set to your studies.

top homeschool curriculum - spanish languageThe Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids teaches children Spanish language in a fun, dynamic way. In the DVDs, children go through their day-to-day life, with a humorous twist, while speaking Spanish in a way that your children can follow and relate to.

“As a homeschooling Mom teaching Kindergarten this year, I really enjoyed learning Spanish with my daughter using Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids. The high quality videos showing kids speaking Spanish in natural situations were fun to watch. We wanted to watch them again and again and my five year old learned enough Spanish to use it at breakfast the next day! The workbook pages and games reinforce new vocabulary and enhance the program by incorporating reading and spelling. I would use this curriculum for kids 5 and up as a no fuss way to introduce the Spanish language to kids.” -Kerry J.
