Ideal Curriculum (Review)

Ideal Curriculum is a packaged curriculum suitable for preschool and early kindergarten age students.   This particular product line, lends itself well to parents of young children, homeschoolers, daycare providers and preschool and kindergarten teachers.

The curriculum is broken down into monthly increments.  Included in each month are goals for the month, daily schedule and assessments by the week.

For young children with lots of energy, Ideal Curriculum offers a variety of activities throughout the lessons to reinforce the skills.  Activities include:

-storytelling
-sequencing
-songs
-chants
-dramatic play 
-games

As part of TOS Crew, we received a free copy of Month 1 for review purposes.  Both the math and reading were below Lindsey’s grade level, so we didn’t use it a great deal.  However, the lesson plans appear to be very easy to follow and by all appearances would work nicely for a beginning student.

The science portion was lots of fun.  The focus was on wheels and axles and transportation.  The experiments included were simple and easy to do.  Lindsey enjoyed the printables that went along with the science portion of the curriculum as well.  Some are in full color, others are black and white which allows for extra time to color and ask questions.

Ideal Curriculum is offering my readers 10% off on your first order!   Use the discount code  welovekids to receive your discount.   Offer good from May 1- May 31, 2010.
