Calvert Curriculum for K-2
Calvert is a trusted name known by many veteran homeschoolers. While an umbrella school at one time using an eclectic combination of curriculum products; now that trust will be transferred to this series of core curriculum courses that provide well-organized and well-covered subjects, with colorful and appealing artwork. The format is user-friendly. Ten Worktexts (Units) provide both the textual/instructional material and written activity/exercise space students need. The worktexts also contain several tests (two self-tests and a unit test). A thorough Teacher Edition(s) provides teacher helps (schedules, grading info, record-keeping sheets) and alternate unit tests. In the K and 1st grade levels, daily, detailed lesson plans and reproducible worksheets are provided. These daily lessons include a materials list and reduced copies of student pages (including tests) with answers. Grade 2 Teacher Editions provide general unit lesson plans, materials lists, optional additional learning activities, reproducible worksheets, and answer keys (but no reduced student pages). Subject Sets include both Worktexts and Teacher Editions and sometimes additional materials. Lessons are designed to be teacher-student interactive, especially in K-1, but also provide work for students to complete independently. Content for each course is comprehensive and secular. Grade level Four-Subject Sets include math, language arts, history/geography, and science. The Kindergarten Set includes math and language arts.
