First Grade Homeschool Curriculum DIGITAL EDITION | Full First Grade Open-Ended Template Curriculum With Teacher's Guide
Welcome to the forest! Here we believe that learning should be fueled by wonder, customizable, and always an adventure. This book will allow your children and you to set your own pace and parameters, connect, explore, and feel the magic that is education. Each subject in this book is represented as a different "forest", and each "forest" has corresponding ideas and objectives located in the Teacher's Guide.
The pages are templates meant to guide and direct learning and open the door to further investigation. Each page has blanks to be filled in beforehand by either the parent or student and can be reused multiple times and in more than one way to maximize understanding. This allows for maximum connection and resonance with the activities, each individually tailored to fit your child's needs and interests.
You are free to choose what order you complete activities in and how quickly you go. Ideally, an activity will be fueled by a question asked by your child who is ready to learn about a specific topic. Follow their lead and become familiar with what is inside so you are ready when the wonder comes knocking.
The information and objectives in this book were taken from a paraphrased combination of Texas TEKS and National Common Core standards. While each educator is free to use their own methods of teaching and deviate as desired, the topics are an excellent guideline for a child's natural development around the ages of early elementary education.
The Early Learning Essentials section of this book is meant to be used as a supplement to everyday learning and as additional templates to be used as you see fit in your schooling. These resources are fitting for many different facets of education and can be reused many times over the course of your family's schooling story.
Everything in this book is highly researched and carefully created with heart and soul to foster connection and a love of learning between parent, child, and their ever-expanding world. Jump in with both feet and enjoy your adventures as Forest Rangers!

We believe that learning is not one size fits all, and our intuitive design fosters the connection between child and educator, academics, and the world.
