One of the most exciting things about being a homeschool mom is choosing homeschool curriculum. When I first started teaching, I was sort of just taking a stab at curriculum and choosing things that I thought were wonderful resources, and they certainly were. But, when I stumbled upon The Good and the Beautiful homeschool curriculum, I realized I hit the jackpot!
How We Use the Good and the Beautiful Homeschool Curriculum
The first time I heard about The Good and the Beautiful, I thought it was too good to be true. The language arts program had been released and Levels 1-5 were free. There’s no way a complete language arts curriculum would be free, right? I didn’t even give it a look.
Several months later I was struggling with my then eight year old. I had no way of measuring his progress. He hated reading. He was not retaining his spelling words. Every lesson was painful and there was a chance there might be tears. I knew something had to change.
I kept hearing about how wonderful The Good and the Beautiful was. I decided to give it a go. I downloaded the Level 2 Language Arts curriculum, printed it out, and tried it. Something in my son changed. School was no longer a struggle. I could assess where he was academically. I became a believer in the curriculum.
Free Homeschool Curriculum
Yes, I said free homeschool curriculum. The Good and the Beautiful offers a free download of the language arts curriculum for levels 1-5. I have also caught several other free promotions by following their Facebook page. It’s not too good to be true. This is a full curriculum and it has brought so much light into our homeschool.
The Good and the Beautiful Language Arts
We started our homeschool journey with The Good and the Beautiful Language Arts. Be sure to check out my reviews, overviews, and tips. You can find an online placement for the Good and the Beautiful language arts curriculum at their website to see what level your child may need to start with. Please keep in mind, levels are not grade specific. For example, my second grader is working on Level 1, while my fourth grader is finishing Level 2 and will move on to Level 3 during the same year.
The Good and the Beautiful Library
I love that the mission of The Good and the Beautiful Library is to bring back good, clean, and wholesome books. In the library you will find affordable books that were either out of print or hard to find.
