Homeschooling with Themes and topics in Sequence
The HomeLearn program is built around a sequence of "themes" or Units to make sure that the full curriculum for Science and Society (History, Geography & Civics) is covered over the course of the year.
The themes springboard from the core reading book, and this theme is used to cover the curriculum topics at the student's age/grade level, while still maintaining and developing language at their reading level.
There is a close integration between the English, Science and Society, and the suggested plan moves from one to the other through the Unit of work.
All grade/course levels have the same Science theme at the same time, so cross-age group activities and excursions are possible.
This chart shows a typical sequence, in this case for the "Cougar" reading level.
