The 5 Year Curriculum is comprised of 36 Lesson Plans.  Each Lesson Plan is divided into three sections: 

1.  Items Needed (suggested supplies)
2.  Objectives (the learning that you will introduce to the child)
3.  Suggested Activities (age-appropriate ways to introduce the learning)

The Lesson Plans are designed to be a guide, so choose the objectives and activities which are best for your situation. 

A fourth section - Daily Schedules - help make the learning part of daily activities and play by breaking the weekly Lesson Plans into activities to be covered over four days.  The Daily Schedules are only available in the purchased Lesson Plans book.

Holiday Activities can be found after Week 36 or at the bottom of the blue "ONLINE LESSONS PLANS" drop-down box in the right-handle column or below.  Incorporate these activities whenever appropriate.
