Scope and Sequence
The GCP1 curriculum is fantastic, and this bundle is priceless. Truthfully, I bought it mainly because of the beautiful ABC and number flashcards :) but there are SO many resources. Hanging up the themes for each week help keep us on track, and the worksheets are wonderful complements. My 3 yo LOVES the rainbow writing. I love how the themes provide more than enough to work on, but are very flexible and adaptable to different ages and needs. So happy with this curriculum and bundle! Zero issues with printing at home.
I was nervous about homeschooling but this program is so great in how everything is done for you! All I had to do was gather supplies. My kids love learning and are memorizing and learning so quickly! I am so glad I found this great program!
I was first drawn to this program due to its aesthetically pleasing vintage looking flashcards, however, I quickly fell in love with the core of the curriculum! It's a gentle, natural way of introducing information that young children should learn. My little one (4) has had no "formal" preschool prior to this program. I love how the curriculum introduces math, science, social, character, scriptures, nursery rhymes to name a few, in ways that are natural to daily life. The bundle was worth it, having all the resources at hand makes it easier for me to plan for each unit. I used a laser printer and the pictures turned out just fine, used lots of ink but that's to be expected when printing an entire curriculum. Wish I would have had this for my other children when they were younger.
I was feeling very overwhelmed with the idea of homeschool, but this makes it so doable and enjoyable!
I am very excited to use this curriculum and I am glad I got the bundle because the extra resources are so helpful! I love the beautiful vintage photos and the style of the curriculum. I thought it was very easy to print and laminate everything on my own!
