The Good & The Beautiful Readers select as follows : 

  • For 1st grade - Level K.

  • For 2nd Grade - Level 1. 

  • For 3rd Grade - Level 2. 

  • For 4th Grade - Level 3.

  • I recommend The Bible App for devotionals you and your kids 12 and up. Keys For Kids for kiddos ages 9-11, and The Bible App for Kids for your kiddos ages 5-8. Adjust the ages as you see fit for your kids' maturity and understanding level.

  • Indescribable is an excellent tool for Biblical Science for all ages. It leads to more research and papers/essays for older grades and very interesting discussions for all ages. Even I learned things along with my kiddos!

  • You do not have to do a musical instrument. If you already have one that you do, continue to grow in the skill. Great beginner instruments [you can choose any if your kid is interested in something else] are :

PreK-2nd : GlockenspielPentatonic Flute or Recorder

3rd-6th :Keyboard or PianoPentatonic Flute or Recorder

7th-12th : Ukulele, Guitar 


This just makes nature exploration extra fun!

OPTIONAL History Read Alouds

Initially these were in the required reads, but in an effort to keep things even simpler, we have made these optional. There are a lot of history movies in Year 2.
