Fourth - Sixth Grade (9-12 Years)
Morning Virtues is a bi-monthly volume - created for all of your children, 1st grade and up - that brings beauty, connection, and character into your homeschool days. Choose the "core virtue" you would like to emphasize for the next 2 months. We provide you with living book recommendations, scripture reading, scripture memory, handicrafts, artist study, composer study, manners/hygiene focus, and a schedule for all of it. Grab this collection + the recommend books, and you're sure to start your days off in a beautiful, rich way.
Gentle + Classical Nature is a robust, living-book rich, exploration of nature. Volume 1 is centered around inland waterways and forests. Volume 2 focuses on shorelines and oceans. Nature is adaptable for multiple ages (K-4th) as it offers Student Notebooks at two levels. However, all elementary students are able to work together on the same topics.
While we do not currently have a Level 3 Student Notebook ready for Volumes 1 and 2 of Nature, children in 5th and 6th grade can easily join into nature study with their younger siblings, then spend time with independent readings of listed books or hands-on projects. We find these Nature and Ocean Anatomy companion notebooks from from Daily Skill Building really helpful with this age group.
Geography/Culture (Social Studies):
On Mission is a curriculum that engages children preschool through upper elementary with a cultural feast for their minds and hearts. Through beautiful images, living books, engaging activities, simple handicrafts, hands-on projects, stimulating challenges, interesting stories, and wise discipleship, our children are introduced to countries and cultures in a gentle and classical way. This program offers so much content that it works as a whole-family social studies for all elementary students. New Student Notebooks (available for Ukraine, Greece, Canada and later, Madagascar and Afghanistan) make implementation that much easier!
