Be creative when using multiple curricula! I designed the Lesson Plans so that you combine portions of them with ease.

This is my first year combining curriculum (Year 3 and Year 5). I LOVE how easy it is to combine... I don't do everything in every week - but, I'm easily able to combine due to the way the lessons are crafted. Thank you! I love using this as an outline for our days- my kids LOVE their activities we do each day... and most of the time, they have no idea they are learning. It's just fun. I love having the objectives each day. Thank you for all you do!!

Use the Objectives Poster:
Purchase the "We are Learning..." poster as a guide to help you combine the five curricula objectives. When used alongside the 36 Week Scope and Sequences provided in the printed Curriculum Guides, you can quickly choose the objectives you desire to cover. Place combined objectives in the bold boxes and child-specific objectives in the thin boxes. Place the poster in a plastic cover or picture frame, then mark up the objectives with a dry erase marker to reuse the one poster as many times as you need.
