Pamela Maxey, author of Classic Start Curriculums, has also authored Classic Start Themed Unit Studies. This book for primary aged students is organized by the four seasons and includes three themed units each for fall, winter and spring. There is a special reading unit for summer. The themes include fish, Thanksgiving, Christmas, presidents, authors and bugs. These, plus season specific units, make up the year. Included in the units are activities for reading, writing, math, science, geography, cooking, art and more. One of my favorites is April - the Author Unit. Having read Go, Dog. Go! at least a thousand times I like the ideas for celebrating author, P.D. Eastman, complete with plans for your own Dog Party!
In Pamela's introduction to the book she says, "The goal of these Unit Studies is to guide you in ideas and cause you to expand your thinking to even more creative ideas." I appreciate the work that she has done to speed parents on the way to creative and fun-filled learning for their primary aged students.
For more of what is offered at Classic Apple, I recommend a look at the website: www.classicapple.com. Who knows, you may find yourself celebrating National Caramel Month, reading Narnia books in celebration of C.S. Lewis birthday on November 29th, or making January 24th a school holiday for National Peanut Butter Day. There are many fun days ahead for the family using Classic Apple Curriculum.
